This step-by-step tutorial shows you how to paint a brick fireplace that may be too dark, outdated, or just needs to be refreshed. This was my ugly brick fireplace in our family room and it made the room feel very dark like a cave. I used a brick fireplace painting kit called Brick Anew, which creates a faux finish painted brick fireplace that looks like brick, only lighter. I used their Twilight Taupe color.
UPDATE: As of Fall 2018, the brick still looks great and hasn't chipped or worn!
