Whitewash Brick Fireplace

3 tools

Started at the bottom, mixed the paint 1 part paint to 1 part water and stirred well. I used a brush and wiped any drips as I went. I worked in 4-6 foot sections. I put one coat on and let dry overnight. I added some grey chalk paint to windows and side doors and white to gold metal in center(I later added white over the grey on doors and windows and grey over white on center). I put an additional coat on brick the following day.

Had a 25 foot fireplace in house I recently purchased. Immediately wanted to redo fireplace and brighten room. Have been wanting to try whitewash on brick and decided to go for it.
