Personally I’m not a fan of painted brick but I loved her solution: concrete stain.
This is super easy DIY project to update a brick fireplace, and it only takes about an hour to do two coats AND complete the whole project.
Pour concrete stain into the tray and using the roller paint the stain on the walls.
Press lightly so that the roller doesn’t get down into the grout.
Spritz with clear water to rinse and blot dry with a clean cloth.
Apply a fresh coat of paint to your red brick fireplace to provide a new look.
No, I can’t afford another house, I’m just thinking.
For awhile now I’ve been thinking about the next project.
Professional decorating ideas can help you give your red brick fireplace a face-lift you'll love.
Sometimes a fireplace simply needs a thorough cleaning and a little maintenance to give it an updated, fresh look.
Unless you have a direct vent fireplace or balanced flue, you need to consider ventilation; fires require an air supply to burn well.
A lack of wall space can make it desirable to cover up a fireplace, either leaving the recess or making it flush with the wall.
You may need to install a new flue, or have an existing chimney lined or relined — the main types of flue are shown here.
