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.

Looks great!
by: Laurajean

I would love to see this look in my studio (which is really the basement). I love your technique. It reminds me of Philadelphia lofts or studios. Where did you find the brick? It looks labor instensive and maybe a bit time consuming, how much area did you cover? and how long did it take.

For a home's exterior?
by: Errin Marata

Will painting faux finishes pass for good exterior home painting ? I was thinking of ways to spiffy up our front deck and this faux brick look's neat.

Bricks look very realistic and much better than the "before" picture. Well done!
