Please show me your painted brick fireplace.
I know there must be somebody out there who has and actually LIKES thier painted brick fireplace. If so, can you show me a pic, please?
Please assume I have already considered the fact that painting brick is considered sacrilegious to some, that it is pretty much permanent. I don't care.
I have a hideous wood burning fireplace....hideous because it is some sort of blond brick that is extremely difficult to coordinate with any colors. Always looks filthy. Kinda yellowish, tannish, greyish.....in short, it's ugly.
It is in a downstairs family room which was probably built in the late 70s, early 80s. I've just painted over the ugly fake wood paneling a lovely creamy color and I want to paint the brick and either stain or paint the concrete hearth and mantle and am looking for ideas. THANKS!
