    Default 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.

    Default 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.
