For as long as I’ve lived in my 1927 home I have been dying to paint the cold grey limestone fireplace.
The fireplace is historic to the look of the house. I know many people would cringe over the idea of painting it.
However, after 9 years of living in my house and debating over and over I FINALLY did it!!!
I painted it!
I am beyond thrilled with how it turned out!
Before & After
It’s a true testament that paint makes ALL the difference in the world!
It was simple to do.
~ Clean fireplace with vinegar and water
~ For Concrete, Stone, or porous material seal with two thin coats of Lock Down Epoxy Bonding
~ Paint 2-3 coats of Acrylic paint
~ When dry apply 2-3 thin coats of clear Aqua Plastic Urethane Varnish. I used a flat finish.
I would love your opinion…..mantel scarf or no scarf??? Which do you like best?
Im overjoyed with the results!
Now Im asking myself…Why didn’t I do this sooner? 😉
Email me if you have any questions and want to try it yourself!
