Brick Fireplace Makeover

I have been debating whether or not to paint our brick fireplace for years now. All sorts of thoughts ran through my head. “What if you grow tired of it?” “The red brick is classic, you should never paint over it”, “It’s your damn house, do want you want!” In the end, the assertive, adventurous voice won. I picked up a can of Benjamin Moore Natura paint which I chose because it was no-VOC, which made me feel safe painting with a baby in the house. We brushed and cleaned the brick, let it fully dry and painted it the next night.  I love how it turned out, it definitely brightens up the space and allows for the mantel we made to become more of a statement piece. Check out the before and afters:
