Vertically Scored Brick Treatment Ideas

So I have scored brick around the fireplace. If it was standard brick I wouldn't think of messing

with it, or if I was I could easily see what whitewashed brick looked like. I can not find examples of painted, or whitewashed, scored brick.

I am at a loss for what to do around the fireplace. The house has been undergoing some renovation and I need to update the look in the Living Room to match what a gorgeous job my wife has done with the rest of the house.

Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do? I want to keep the brick, but it's not very nice. It's also soot covered, but that can be solved easily enough.

I'm not generally a fan of painting brick. I don't typically think it comes out well, or looks better. A nice light whitewash on normal brooks can look nice, but I dont know what to do about these grooved bricks.

Thanks in advance!
