Update Your Brick Wall or Faux Brick Wall With 3 Steps!
Hi!!! So Spencer and I are working on a project for our bedroom with an antique mantel. We bought the mantel and it had this outdated faux brick board and I wanted to brighten it up since we have a cottage/beach style going on in our house. It was super quick and easy and I want to share with you guys what I did.
So I had this paint in my paint cabinet and added water to it to thin it out. I wanted it that way because I wanted it to be water to get in the crevices and so I could wipe it well.
I just took a regular style paint brush and painted over the entire thing. I I was pretty heavy-handed with it because I wanted it to get into the crevices really really really well.
As I went along I took a paper towel and wiped off all the excess. It gave me a really good warm look and not uniform in places.
And it is all done! I'm super happy with the results and can't wait to put it inside the fireplace I will show that project completed soon but I just wanted to share this simple and easy technique to update any brick wall or faux brick wall. We would love if you followed us on Sierra Stars Furniture and Gifts on Facebook. Beth and Spencer
