Recently I posted about painting our fireplace brick and mantel with Fusion Mineral Paint. It was fast, inexpensive, and provided the immediate gratification I crave! Just a bit of cleanup to begin with and I had a fresh, new look in about an hour and a half, no sealer coat required.
While I was painting, I thought about folks who do not have a brick fireplace – maybe just drywall above their mantel, or even no fireplace at all. I realized that Fusion has a wonderful option for creating the faux brick look! They offer a stencil shaped like authentic brick that can be used for painting what I call southern-traditional-style brick. You know, terra cotta and browns. Or, like my new favorite, a cool, contemporary color scheme, using soft grey and white textures.
