Quick Fireplace FixBEFORE: Nadine Abdo Kerr was thrilled with the new paint colors in her living room, but the original fireplace surround didn't look good with them. It was driving her crazy, and she was looking for a quick fix. It was a matter of painting the mantel, the tile or both.Houzz users suggested painting both the tile and the mantel, choosing colors based on her furniture. One user suggested that Kerr talk to an expert at the paint store to make sure the paint would stand up to heat. Several users thought that retiling completely was her best option, and three said that she should take off the mantel for a cleaner look. A few Houzz professionals jumped in, suggesting that she may want a professional's help for that.
