Home Decorating in a Flash

What do you do when you have a brick wall that sucks all the light out of a room? You paint it, of course.

We moved into our house three years ago, and one entire wall of the family room was made up of awesome 1970s-era dark brick. Despite white walls and carpeting, it was always like sitting in a cave whenever we were in the family room. We’d been talking for years about what to do with it, and we finally got out the rollers and brushes.

This is actually a video of our priming the brick, but you get the idea. You’re looking at two and a half hours’ worth of work compressed into 120 seconds.

I’ll post details on the project in a future blog posting. In the meantime, enjoy!
