How hard was it to paint the bricks Did you prime first? I've been reluctant to paint ours but seeing your photos I'm more convinced the room looks beautiful.
Kind Regards Karen
Karen - this was our secret weapon! We were lucky in that the mortar sat flush with our horrible brown, exposed bricks. MOTH says thats if the mortar dips in a well between the bricks it makes for a much more difficult job - lots of dab, dab dab with a paint brush! We used long lambswool rollers to apply 2 coats of acrylic Primer. The nap of the roller really worked wonders in getting the paint into all the imperfections & hairline cracks of the bricks. We then rolled on 2 coats of acrylic Top Coat. Be prepared to use a lot more paint this way, as the lambswool really soaks up the paint, but the result has been worth it.
