Lime Washing Brick on Interior and Exterior Surfaces

A hot new trend in design improvement is to lime wash brick.

Brick fireplaces, brick walls, exterior brick...basically anything that has brick on it is a great porous surface for lime wash paint. Another popular trend is doing a German Shmear. Both of these can be done beautifully using our Lime Wall Paint.

Let's see some 'before and after' examples to see the impact lime washed brick can make in your space!

To lime wash you simply thin down our Lime Wall Paint and spread on. The reason our lime paint is the best way to paint brick is because it penetrates into the brick and masonry and doesn't create a plastic looking topical film which acrylic paints do. Lime wall paint is natural and literally soaks into the brick and leaves a natural contour of the brick. Because our lime wash is mineral based and is free of acrylic and synthetic additives the lime washed brick will not fade, peel or crack.  The finished brick can fit many different styles from mid century modern, farmhouse, traditional, or ultra modern. It is an extremely inexpensive way to completely change the look of brick and the entire living or exterior space.

Brick can also be done in a tone on tone fashion using a light grey and white as seen below.

The possibilities are endless!
