In most cases it’s best to use oil primer as the water in latex primer can often raise the grain in the wood – creating yet another step in the process. Regardless of whether you’re painting over wood/stain or existing paint, I still recommend Behr 2 in 1 paint.

You can use latex paint over oil primer without any worries. 3 coats of this product will give you a beautiful finish as it has a moderate amount of self-levelling properties which make for a smooth surface when applied with a 10-13mm nap roller. ) Remember, paint takes 3 weeks to cure properly so be gentle.

We also painted the oak mantel white and spray painted the brass surround. It is about 1/3 as thick as a standard tile, meaning that you can put it over existing tile without worrying that it will a) slide off b) create a large lip on the edges. All of the options are stone/marble/travertine, meaning that it’s an upscale look that adds panache to any backsplash or fireplace surround. It comes in 12 x 12 sheets meaning that if you pick the right pattern (square, not staggered), you will not even have to rent a tile cutter to install this product around your fireplace.

You can just use a utility knife to get out the shape/size you need. Some of them don’t even need grout as the tiles are set flush together.

No space = no grout = 1 less step for the not-so-handy homeowner! Menards pricing is considerably higher than what they sold it for here in Nanaimo, so do some shopping around to see if you can find better pricing.

While the cost initially is a little shocking ( – sq ft locally) when you weigh it against removing your existing tile, repairing the drywall (or installing new drywall) and THEN installing the tile – it really balances out.

Most brass surrounds have pieces that are removable.

And if we ever convert our fireplace to a wood-burning one (which is unlikely since it would require a ton of chimney work) we’ll just pop out the wood trim and install tile edge pieces.

To see what your fireplace would look like when sealed, fill a spray bottle with water and cover a section of your fireplace with it. Keep in mind that many of the sealants won’t have the ‘sheen’ that water makes, but will create the ‘depth of colour’.
