How to paint marble

While decorating a house in Stillorgan, we were asked could we paint the marble surround to the Aga in a kitchen as the marble no longer went with the new colour scheme of the hand-painted kitchen units and walls.

Steps to painting marble

1. We rubbed the marble down with emery paper.
2. After this, we “bin” primed the marble.
3. Once it was primed, we painted the marble much the same way as painting kitchen cabinets.

It worked out very well and saved our client several hundred if not thousands of euros as the marble did not have to be replaced.

So if you were wondering if it’s possible to paint marble fireplaces or surrounds, the answer is yes!
