Using a faux-finish, it still looks like brick, but is fresh, light, and opens up the family room to let in more light.

      I did the same think with a stone fireplace...the stone was a blue-gray color and looked awful when we repainted the living room., so I decided to paint the fireplace too. It was easy, inexpensive and it turned out beautiful. Go for it!

    i painted my really ugly stone fireplace and it was beautiful , just a quart of latex paint only about $8 worth and scrubbed the rocks beforehand ... and if it gets dirty over time , just repaint it , so inexpensive .
