We had the honor of transforming the brick this fireplace for a client recently. Julie loves her fireplace but was tired of the red in the brick and wanted to keep the brick looking authentic and not painted.

So I fiddled with products and with techniques until I figured out a look that we all liked.



And it ended up that we used these 2 products. 

First, Jen covered the brick in 80-90% Grizzle Gray from Sherwin Williams.

Then, Stephanie came behind her and added a little Ebony Stain and Seal that you can order online on my affiliate link HERE.

They “smooshed” the 2 colors together and ragged off a little as needed so that there was still DEPTH to the brick.

In this picture you can see the bottom is done and the hearth is not. Huge change, isn’t it??
