I want to paint a drab craftsman brick fireplace to look like classic green tiles. Was thinking of using Ralph Lauren metalic green paint to paint individual bricks. Do you think that would look good? »
Arts and Crafts Era homes often included a tile border, as well as carved wood details and built-in bookshelves flanking the fireplace. If it's Craftsman style you are going for, a tile detail on the fireplace is a good choice.
