I'm wondering about whether to paint my brick (external) or not. Before you get upset about me painting brick (Yes, I've read a lot about it!) let me explain. We have very cheap brick from the 50's, I've been told that it is actually called "brick block" not real brick. It has faded in the sun considerably as well and has gone from a nice deep red to an ugly pink color. So, I've thought about painting, but what color? Do I try to make it look like brick still? Do I go with a red? Do I go for white? Any suggestions would be very appreciated! Thanks!
