Mortar Wash is just my buzz word for exactly what you referred too.....watering down paint. It's basically a formula of 3/4 paint to 1/4 water....there is a wealth of blogs about how to paint bricks. I am sure you have been reading them....don't be too afraid .....maybe practice a little on some bricks to just get the feel of it.....we have done it many times and it really updates the dated brick ! Let us know how you did....thanks for following us !

GALAXY DRAPERIES

Lovely post, very explanatory! I enjoy how you guys find balance in your designs by modifying the surrounding decor. But why ignore and hide the windows when you should be embracing them?! We love complementing irregular windows with the perfect window covering that will not only make it stand out but be a positive conversation starter as well!
