Painted Brick Fireplace

Our brick always looked dirty, even if it wasn't. I sprayed it down with some all-purpose organic household cleaner, let it dry and went to town with a can of Valspar semi gloss in a creamy white (from their reject pile, most likely, because you can't beat a $5 can of neutral paint!) and a paintbrush.
So much better and brighter! Check out more winter home tips here at The Inspired Room!

At one of our house we painted a brick wall behind a wood stove and it made a huge difference like this... So beautiful!
