  1. I love this project. What type of paint? affect is on the mantelpiece and its surrounds. It looks very bobble and i love that effect?

    1. Hi Linda, glad you enjoyed this DIY. I honestly don’t know the material that was used as it was already done when we purchased the home.

    1. Hello Allison, yes right over. I had smooth glass tile underneath so no problem at all. I think they would work fine over stone tile as well though.

  2. Wondering how your smart tiles have held up to heat of fireplace? Need to know as considering this project, thanks so much!

  3. I have the same black fireplace with the brass doors and I have been researching painting the brass. I love what you did with the tile! Did you need to sand the brass before you painted. Also, we use our fireplace a lot in the winter and have these products held up to the heat? Thanks so much, looks beautiful!

    1. Hi Cindy! I used a high heat spray paint for the brass that is meant for BBQ’s. No sanding was required, just wipe it down with a damp cloth beforehand. Both the brass and the tile have held up very well!

    1. Hi Tiffany! It’s a juju hat purchased from The Cross Decor. If you follow me on the liketoknow.it app it will take you straight to the link to order 🙂

  4. This looks fantastic! My fireplace looks almost identical (black mirrored tile with black insert) and I’d like to do almost the same project.

    A few questions:
    – Do you use your fireplace and does the heat affect the smart tiles?
    – When fireplace is on, is there any odor from the adhesives/tile?
    – Have you ever removed the tiles and do they leave a residue or damage when doing so?

    1. Hi John! The heat does not affect the smart tiles and no odour at all. I’ve never removed them so unfortunately I cant speak to that. I guess it depends if you might go back to the existing surface or not. I wouldn’t in my case so it wasn’t an issue. Hope that helps!

  5. Do you think this would work on the small portion of floor that currently has the same old tile as around the fireplace?

  6. We don’t have a frame around the tile on our fire place do you think the smart tiles would look weird without having the wood frame?

    1. Hi Elyse! I think either would look good. If your hearth is raised I would say paint. If it’s on the floor then I think you could continue with the tiles. Hope that helps 😃
