I absolutely love painted brick. I’ve been seeing more of it every day on shows like Fixer Upper on HGTV. I don’t have the guts to paint the whole front brick facade of my house though. I painted the three sides of my house Oyster Bay by Sherwin Williams last Spring and I love it! It’s so tranquil. I live in Saint Johns, FL so I really enjoy the coastal vibe this color brings. I’ve been filling in caulking and retouching little details and I noticed this red brick step under my garage side door. This grout job was done by somebody years ago and it really sticks out like a sore thumb. The red brick color felt very out of place. I painted it Oyster Bay so it would blend in with the wall and look richer. I just did a light dry brushing. I’m so happy I decided to take the risk and paint it. Painting this small brick detail really helped to continue to modernize the house and add curb appeal. When I drive up my driveway every day it now brings a smile to my face. That's exactly what design should do for us.
Do you like painted brick? I’d love to hear!
