You need what is called a "line wrench"..
A special wrench with six points..

If the fittings are already stripped,
Sometimes you can bust them loose
with a good set of vice grips..

you need a oxy/act tourch, heat the fittings then use the vise grips on them. if there alread striped, cute the line off with side cutters and put a 6 point socket on the fitting to remove it and then change the fitting

I see this is old but I seriously hope that you do not plan to take your brake lines off just to have the floor painted . .. to do know that you are going to have to bleed all of the brakes and probable snap off a few wheel cylinder and caliper bleeders in the process. . . . if is isn't broke. . . .
