The hearth in front of my newly retiled fireplace (which was described in a DIY blog) needs repainting to complete the job.
The hearth is made up of 6x6 ceramic tiles that have a well adhered coat of paint (or more likely several coats) over both the tiles and the grout. The surface is satin and has only a few small areas that have been worn through. There is no flaking.
I plan to wire brush any loose paint, sand lightly and wipe clean.
The Question: What type of paint is best to stand up to the scuffing of shoes, logs and fireplace tools, and to withstand a bit of heat (near the firebox edge) and the possible occasional flying cinder?
