These are in the range of 6000-10,000 dollars I believe. I love to offer our painting lights to this house though.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Artful Vintage Style in Omaha
The McKays painted the fireplace a bold color to get some contrast in the room. After playing around with a few colors, Jessica settled on a glossy black to cover the dated brick and mantel. The original artwork above the mantel is by Omaha artist Cristina Renfer Vogel, and it's one of Jessica's favorite pieces in her home. The McKays love working with local artists and host art openings from their interior design studios. Often the pair will start collecting pieces from the artists that they work with. "Nothing adds more interest to your space than original art," Jessica says. "My advice is to find artists you love and get friendly with them. Save, because art is an investment that can be passed down through the generations."Fireplace paint: Dark Kettle Black, Valspar

Vanessa Brunner added this to What You Need to Know Before Painting Brick
The Risks"Ask yourself if you're covering up something that should be addressed separately," says Crocker. He recommends getting in touch with the original owners or the builder who installed the brick, whenever possible, to uncover any problems that might arise. "You have to be very careful when you're changing the exterior makeup of a wall," says Crocker. Moisture is a concern that's usually apparent right off the bat. Water can enter brick through brick pores, incomplete mortar joints, sills, copings and other gaps. Make sure your brick is completely dry before you paint it — the risk of long-term or immediate damage is less likely.The natural chemical property of bricks may affect your paint's durability as well. According to the Brick Industry Association, most bricks are neutral, but mortar often has a basic alkalinity. Paint products can be affected, so alkaline-resistant primer is usually recommended. "Efflorescence" is a big word for that annoying white residue that often appears on older brick walls. This residue is made up of deposits of water-soluble salt buildup, often from moisture inside the brick. Remove the efflorescence with water and a stiff brush before painting your brick, and wait to see if it returns. If it does, you may have a bigger problem on your hands that requires professional help.
