A natural brick fireplace can be a beautiful thing, and while it might not be for everyone, her home needed a little extra brightness to lighten things up! A lack of natural light and dark floors can make a home feel more like a cave, so this might be a great idea to brighten the entire room!
First things first! Get your fireplace ready for paint. Clear off any clutter, use painter’s tape to protect the wall and floor, and if your fireplace is a bit dirty or has soot stains, use a sealer (concrete or masonry) to keep the stains from showing through. Sealing the grout will help you to use less paint and in turn make the project quicker.Getting paint in between the bricks was the hardest part, she writes.
