Makeover a fireplace effortlessly!
July 7, 2022
Transformed my daughter’s drab red brick fireplace into a light and bright fireplace that is no longer the elephant in the room. It is softer and more inline with the Farmhouse trend. I used 3 different colors of All-In-One paint, a dollar store sponge mop head. I poured 3 different colors of paint into a tray, swirled them like making a marble cake, dipped the sponge mophead into the paint, then lightly sponged each brick. My daughter still wanted to have the red brick showing through and didn’t want a painted look so I did not apply the paint with a brush, only the sponge mophead. Took maybe 2 hours and was extremely easy to do.
