Last week, I did some whitewashing on a red (orange? pink?) brick fireplace. It's so much prettier now. I love how the brick is not completely painted over, but it's not as bold and contrasted as it was before! Plus, it's much better with their more neutral color scheme.
much better, huh?
I just did a simple mix of latex paint, about 1/2 water, 1/2 paint. Maybe more like 3/4 water, 1/4 paint...somewhere between the 2! I brushed it on with a chip brush, and then kind of rubbed back...
