We tackled a smallish project this past weekend. When I say "we", I mean I dreamed it up and husband did most of the work. Thank goodness he likes doing projects. Because I like dreaming them up!
Although I've never been a fan of painted brick, I ran across a few inspiration pics on Pinterest that convinced me painting was the way to go. This was my favorite:
Because no project ever goes off without a hitch, the painter nozzle was clogged and paint splattered all over the floor and on a few things across the room. So, after an hour of me scrubbing the room down multiple times, painting was resumed.
We're super happy with the outcome. "We" will re-tile the hearth eventually, but this will do for now!
