A View of My NEW(ly restored) Used Brick Fireplace


LOVELY, RESTORED, USED BRICK FIREPLACE:




BEFORE, IN ITS NOT-SO-LOVELY INCARNATION:



That sucker was just about as white as it gets...a veritable SEA of bright white, no matter how much multi-colored mishmash I tried to clutter it up with...

(But now, with my new, reconstituted by the best faux painter ever bricks, I can be more selective...maybe even tasteful!)

So whaddya think? Have I scored a victory for used brick lovers everywhere? (I really would like to  hear your comments on this one!)

=)

Looks GREAT! I like the non-clutter look too:) However, it does make me want to take a paint brush to the rest of the room to tie in the new colors... HMMM

I never would have guessed! I'd love to see a closeup to see how she did it. And so fast, too! Lucky!
