I used to think painting brick was a sin but I think I’ve changed my mind on that. Before we moved out of our house in Los Angeles, I stared for months at our living room and something just seemed off. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it.
At first I thought it was the green paint my husband and I loved and painted on the walls when we first moved in. The room just appeared old fashioned and something wasn’t meshing with our furniture and decor.
Then after seeing this white fireplace, I realized the orange-red brick was throwing everything off.
It is now white and lovely!
By the way, the white looking specks inside the fireplace aren’t paint. It doesn’t appear well in the picture but it is a candle stand with white candles.
This project was one of the easiest and quick fixes I have tackled in a while. It just took a little bit of white paint and a little bit of my time. 10 minutes to paint the first coat and another 10 minutes for the second coat. Since I already had leftover paint, the cost was $0.
What do you think? Do you like? Would you paint brick?
