Faux Brick Look
Before (bottom) and After (top)
I purchased faux brick skins from FauxWallSkins.com and installed them myself. It was simple because I was able to cut the brick skins with a utility knife. A friend in the studio business helped me to paint the bricks. It was a four-step process. We painted the grout color first and then painted the bricks a few different shades of red and then aged them down and spattered them. I think it turned out pretty realistic.
