I’ve always disliked my 60’s brick fireplace surround and intended to paint it. The other day I found a photo of a white horse and fell in love. Had to have it. I brought it home and leaned it on my mantle. It was immediately apparent that the horse needed something more beautiful than my dated brick to call home! So I headed to my basement to see what left over paints I had. I had some whites and greys. I found an extra spongey roller and a paint brush and set to work on painting that dated brick. It took me under 4 hours with a toddler under foot! It was a rush job, but I was pleased with the final result.
