Can You Spray Paint A Fire Pit? – Answer
Painting a fire pit can be a bit challenging because you will have to choose a kind of paint that is heat and wear-resistant. For this purpose, outdoor paint is a good option however, the best option will be to use a spray paint can. This spray paint will give you maximum coverage very quickly and efficiently. You will just have to shake the spray bottle thoroughly so that the inside contents mix well. Then, spray it all over the fire pit in an up and down movement.
You can also use a paintbrush or a paint roller to paint a fire pit however, you will have to be very careful in choosing the correct type of paint. In case you are not careful in this selection, you will end up using the wrong paint that will start to peel given the intensely high heat a fire pit is subject to.
Besides, it takes much longer to dry out as compared to spray paint. I personally prefer a spray can because I think it is a more economical and user-friendly alternative.
