We bought our house 2 years ago and are finally ready to repaint it, which it desperately needs. We are not planning to paint the brick, though I do love a good lime wash. The bright white color it currently is is too bright and can be blinding when the sunlight hits it the right way.
Also, if anyone has lime washed brick, please let me know if it is an easy diy or not. I love the antiqued look of letting the brick show through slightly.
