  • poll: Should I paint the inside of the firebox black?

    Yes paint it black. It'll pop.

    No. Don't paint. Just clean it up and leave the natural brick.

    Paint it but not black, (color suggestion below).

    I have a better idea.

    Wow, it looks so classy, I love it! I agree with the others to paint it black, I think it would fit in better with the overall chic theme.

    I think you should leave the original brick untouched and not paint it black. Since that is the original brick, it gives it some charm, you know?

    You did a beautiful job! I’ll tell you what everyone always tells me about my fireplace which is brick. Paint the inside black, as every time we use it, that’s all anybody notices. It really is an eyesore, so use the high heat paint and be done with it. I’ve had some for a few years and have never gotten around to it. Again,great job!

    I’d paint it black. I like the bench for seating, guests will have warm backs when they sit there!
