This is the unsightly fireplace that I want to paint!
It’s floor-to-ceiling brick. And while that’s pretty cool in chic apartments in Soho, it’s not cool in suburbia Silver Spring, Maryland in my home!
It needs to go. Now.
And we don’t get a lot of light in our family room because of a big tree right outside of our window that resembles a piece of broccoli (i.e. DENSE!).
Apparently it’s a special painting kit that contains several cans and layers of paint that allow you to maintain the natural brick texture, but lightens it up. And they have 3 different colors. It also has an instructional DVD to come with it.
I’m excited to try it! Thankfully there is a money back guarantee on it….
WISH ME LUCK!!!!!
UPDATE (December 2015)
The fireplace is still holding up well! It’s been 3 years since I painted it, and it still looks as good as the day I painted it!
I recently made over my family room, and this is how the painted fireplace looks in my family room!
To see the results and video, go see how I painted my old brick fireplace.

You can also buy a Brick-Anew painting kit, and tell them Thrift Diving sent you! 🙂
