I enjoyed your article on painting interior brick. (URL: http://www.house-painting-info.com/painting-interior-brick.html). I would like to paint my interior Brick Fireplace almost exactly like the brown/black one in the photos. How did you get the colors to blend like that?
It's all in the details and the paint color. We made sure the brick was well sealed with the primer then applied the paint. It took 2 good coats to hide the primer. The details, trim pieces and the gas fireplace cover were painted just after the primer and before the paint.
The paint color is a solid color, blending wasn't needed.
