Having run across a few websites where brick chimneys had been painted or whitewashed, I chose to give it an attempt to whitewash brick. I chose that I didn’t need a robust hazy shade over the brick, so white wash was a great choice. In the event that you are attempting to choose painting versus white washing, your choice will truly hinge on upon the extent you need the brick to show through. Assuming that you need to totally conceal the red brick, painting it might be a choice. Provided that you still need a percentage of the red/brown shades to live up to expectations, then white washing is an exceptional decision.
The primary thing I would have done well to do was clean the brick. Regardless of the chimney having not been utilized as a part of over 30 years, there was a mess of sediment solidified into the brick. Utilizing warm sudsy water, I whitewash brick with a nail brush and gave it a chance to dry. I had more than enough half-discharge jars of white semi-gleam paint lying around the parking space so I didn’t even need to purchase any supplies.
In the wake of ensuring the floor with a covering, I added water to my jar of paint until it had a watery surface. I began with about half a gallon left, and included roughly 1 and a half measures of water to get the consistency I was after.
I rehashed this process one more of a chance until I was content with the outcomes. Utilizing standard semi-gleam paint (that had not been diluted) I additionally painted the shelf white.
As of right now I was pretty content with the chimney, yet the red tile on the bottom was troubling me since it now stood out similar to a sore thumb. In any case I had no idea what to do. I wasn’t intrigued by crushing up the existing tile or tiling over it – that appeared much too work escalated for a Saturday evening undertaking! Rather, I turned to my regular wellsprings of revelation, the daily routine!
