Our fireplace and 1 wall of our master bedroom is brick and painted a dark reddish brown. I would like to lighten it up to make the room appear larger. Can we take the red tint out and lighten it with a stain only. What colors do you suggest on brick and what kind of base and sheen? The living room has lots of brick as the focal point so we want to be happy with the color. Also if we don’t like the color, what’s the easiest way to remove and start fresh?
I want to paint brick that has already been painted. Are there any extra steps or shortcuts for a fresh, non-caked up, finish?
