anyway...back to watching color splash. so they were re-designing a fireplace and painting the brick, while giving it a tuscan look. my dad said "painting brick is a sin" and he was serious and got a little upset. funny, right?
in my opinion, painted brick totally updates the room in some cases, even the exterior of a house can look better painted, giving it a clean, modern look. i always drive by this house and think: "if only they painted the brick and siding, this house would look so much better!" (less barnish)
