How to remove paint off brick
November 14, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We just purchased an 1838 cape and the previous owners painted all the brick fireplaces black as she wanted a "black and white" theme throughout the house. I've seen pictures of the fireplaces as they originally were and know the history of the brick and that it's good quality. I'd love to have the old brick back but worried that sandblasting or using chemicals will just make a bad situation worse. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
