For Christmas this year, I asked my BFF Andrea if I could redecorate her place. I was so excited when she said yes! Woohoo! I love decorating and I was just so excited to make her space even more beautiful but more importantly comfortable for her. She is an amazing and giving person and I really wanted to give her something she could see every day…what better than a room makeover. So she has this kick ass condo in the heart of Houston, the living and dining room are combined and it has bamboo floors and a great focal point in the room is a brick fireplace.
After we sanded I went over the brick with a vacuum to collect the extra dust.
Next we used a rag and a bucket of soapy water to clean the brick. And yes that is a margarita bucket…don’t judge us! lol
After that dried it was time for paint!
Eekkk no turning back now!
And here we are after the first coat, this was really easy to paint with the rollers but then we had to go back in with paint brushes and paint between the bricks to get the mortar
After a second coat these little spots are visible but we think they add character!
And Voila! I absolutely love it and more importantly Andrea does 🙂
