What is the most current way to paint a dark brick fireplace? Solid white,white wash or chalk paint?

    I like the white applied with a rag or watered down and applied with a brush. Solid is pretty blah! Experiment with two or three colors on a piece of cardboard. Maybe a tan, a white and a brick red to mix. Dab on a bit of each until you get a look you like.

    Thanks for your input. I like the idea of mixing the colors for a custom color.
