I’ve always loved my brick house, but that doesn’t mean everyone’s a fan of that classic red look.
If anything you own is covered with bricks and, unlike me, you’ve grown to really dislike that aesthetic, this woman has a great solution for you!
Redditor petitedanseure quickly grew tired of her red brick fireplace but wasn’t sure how to change it. She first considered painting it, but she wanted more texture than paint could offer. That’s when she came up with the perfect way to give it a complete makeover.
The fireplace didn’t fit her style, so she decided to buy a bag of powdered limestone.
After mixing it with polyurethane finish, she applied a coat to the bricks.
Then she sanded the mantle and gave it a dark stain, finishing with a couple coats of polyurethane.
It looks so much more modern and bright!
Now she can sit back and enjoy her cozy fireplace to the fullest. If you’re ready to change the look of just about anything made of brick, you can find the full instructions here.
