painting brick walls
Any tips on how to paint or stain outdoor bricks? I want to have some bricks a different color in a random pattern. Thanks.
Re: painting brick walls
We have successfully used this method to "restore" a brick wall that had been painted powder blue (don't ask - I have no idea why)
1- Power wash the brick and let that dry
2- rent an airless paint sprayer.
3- prime with a quality latex primer
4- overcoat with your base color that most of your bricks will be
5- second coat the bricks
6- take a 1/4" nap roller and cut it to the height of one brick. Use this to paint each of the "random" bricks in the desired colors.
