living room painted brick fireplace

When we moved in the fireplace was a glaring dark red brick. I was going for a lighter look. Took some convincing but husband agreed...after multiple coats it looked much less heavy. He actually likes it. Homeowner.

Wow, I had to do a double take. It looks just like our old house. We did the same thing in a similar room. You guys did a great job.
