    Do you want to paint it?

    the only way to cover the brick would be to drywall it and then put in a new back splash. Or you will have to remove the brick first. Are you sure it is full brick or just a 1/2 brick facing?

      thats exactly what I was thinking! If it's a brick veneer it may not hold the drywall... if it were me, I'd paint the mortar and then whitewash the brick!

    We put ceramic tile over the brick which surrounded our fireplace and it looks great. They had to float the brick first( cover with cement stuff to make it smooth so the tile would stay on)

    painted brick is really in, can you just do that? If you are sick of the brick and it is real, you will have to put up concrete board and then retile. Or 1/4" drywall and paint.
