Painting Fireplace Brick
After whitewashing all of the bricks that can be painted with a rag, use a dry brush to fill in hard-to reach places. If a spot has too much color, mist it thoroughly and blot up the moisture along with some of the paint. Let the whitewash dry overnight before using the fireplace.

A quick way to bring an old brick fireplace into the current decade is to paint it a bold color. For something unexpected, use a high-gloss or metallic shade.If you have adventurous taste and are drawn to primary colors, go with bright yellow, electric blue or cherry red for impact.
Once the primer is dry, it's time to paint. Choose indoor, latex, heat resistant paint—either flat, semigloss, or gloss—rated to withstand temperatures generated by the fireplace (generally about 200°F) and a roller designed for textured surfaces. The latter helps cover the surface of the brick, which is likely not smooth.
Painted - a heavy coat of paint (possibly multiple coats) is applied to completely cover the existing brick and grout lines.A red fireplace becomes a different solid color. Whitewash - typically this involves diluting paint with water, and proceeding to brush it on and wipe it off, giving more of a muted look.
