My kitchen needed a statement wall, and this brick accent wall transformed my kitchen into just what I was hoping for. I am in love! Creating a brick wall and using a tile saw sounded like it was going to be a challenge and to be honest, I was kinda freakin' out. But, I am here to tell you that this was very doable and not scary whatsoever. In fact it was so rewarding and actually quite simple! I will walk you through step by step on how I achieved this look!
- Brick - Old Mill Brick Thin Brickwebb sheets Castle Gate
- Caulk Gun
- Tile saw
- Bright White and Oyster Gray Grout Sanded Grout
- 2 - 5 Gallon Buckets
- Mixing Tool
- Plastic Solo Cup
- Gloves (Dish washing gloves, 2 just in case, I just bought these from the dollar store)
- Grout Bag
- Tarp and plastic sheeting (sorry I don't have links to these, just use anything that will protect your floors!)
First I made a schedule. I planned this in 3 days. The first day I put all of the full brick pieces up. Second day I made all of my cuts and finished putting all of the pieces of brick up. Third day I grouted. The first 2 days are totally doable. I was not expecting the grouting to take so long. I would plan more time for the grouting part if you can. I personally just wanted to get it done so I powered through, but my hands and arms were so sore and I was going a bit crazy. That third day was definitely tiring.
Here is the wall I started with...
