Answer for Staining A Brick Fireplace

I recently was at a home show and ask a mason how to change the color of my brick (indoor) fireplace, he recommended min-wax for wood stain. He advised to test the stain color on the side or on bricks that are not noticeable. I'm going to give this a try.

I have 20 year old brick on the outside of my house which has faded over time. I has tried several stains for brick to add more color to them but they faded within a year also. I finally used Minwax English Chestnut #233 wood stain on the brick and it looks great.

Interior Brick Stain

I had a dull beige brick fireplace and brick columns in my living/dining, and I used Behr metallic copper shear opaque glaze from home depot. Easy to sponge on, and looks warm and beautiful, especially with my amber lighting. I just did a light sponging with a sea sponge so some of the brick shows through.

Answer for Staining A Brick Fireplace

Use an actual masonry stain or concrete stain. They are made for masonry surfaces. There isn't an issue with fire hazard when the stain has fully dried. Plus, a sealer isn't necessary. The masonry stain has its own water repellency built in. This will help with cleaning and dust control.
