I used Twilight Taupe. When your kit arrives instructions take you through each step. I did watch the dvd a few times before I began. The first step took the longest amount of time! I did not rush the "steps". It took me a weekend to complete. Good Luck!

It involves a 5 step process but once you get the brick covered with the base coat it was fun and easy to use. I only wished that I had done it ten years ago when we bought this house. It's made a world of difference in both rooms and has enabled me to decorate and enjoy the brightness of the rooms. I had to order extra paint, since the area of brick wall which surrounds both den and living room with much more coverage than the average brick walls. For the money it was well worth it. I am 71 yrs. old and if I can do it I'm sure anyone can. I have always done painting myself for many years and am picky about the final aspect of the job. I have recived compliments galore and the beauty of it all is that it's much easier to dust the brick wall which I never was able to clean before. If you would like before and after photos of my project email me and I will email you photos.
I would love to see your photos.

Give me a couple of days and I will either post them on here or email them to whoever wants them.
I know this is 2 years late to be asking, I am helping my daughter paint her fireplace and she is wanting to paint it black. If you happen to still have pics of your fireplace, I would love to see them.

Hello lbgal & everyone, I have ordered the Brick aNew product, but after watch the DVD on how to do it, I'm a little afraid of painting my fireplace. Does it really look good like on the picture or we will see the paint on the brick? Thanks. I look forward for your reply.
Thanks.

It has been over a year since I painted my fireplace! I love it! No regrets! I can't see the brick under the paint! I took my time...the first coat took the longest. It took me 3 hours. Painting on brick wasn't as easy as I thought it was going to be. I used the brush and made sure I thoroughly covered the brick. The next day I followed the rest of the steps--it was easier and quicker than the first coat! Let me know if you have any more questions. Good luck!

I too have been researching paint for my ugly fireplace. I don't want it to look like it's been painted. According to Brickanew you don't get that painted look. It is expensive but after reading all the testimonials it looks like original brick. That would be worth it.
I don't want to spend any money no matter how small the amount only to have to redo it. So I want to know as does busymom has anyone tried this??

I tried brick anew and just LOVED IT! I wished I had the nerve to do it years ago. It's totally changed the look of my den from dark and dated to updated and bright.
