White Firebrick Stain

One coat on left - two coats on right

Before firebrick, fireplaces were built with regular brick, usually the low fire orange brick used for interior walls. These fireboxes were then plastered (which was a better refractory than ordinary brick) and whitewashed. Re-plastering and whitewashing every Spring was a way to keep the firebox in reasonably good shape and clean them up so they'd look nice with flowers in the firebox all summer long.

But plastering and whitewashing every year is time-consuming and messy.

To build a restoration fireplace that looks reasonably like a 200 year old fireplace, we recommend using firebrick and staining it white.

The white stain might also go with a contemporary color scheme better than buff or ivory firebrick.
