    A good power wash is always recommended as prep. Clean off any dirt and cob webs. Many paint companies make brick paints, but the process is fairly simple. Cut around all the edges with a brush and then roll the rest with a very tall pile (ask at the paint store and tell them what you are doing) roller. You'll probably have to do multiple coats.

  • Check with the folks at the paint counter at your local home improvement store as they can point you to the best options for painting brick. There are various products out there and it may depend on how exposed your porch is to weather.

    you could always just whitewash right over top of the clean bricks!

    Applying white paint, then rubbing off to let some of the red show through. Best to DR GOOGLE the process 👌

    and Google image to see what it looks like. I love the look. Looks weathered and vintage.
