We know how important it is to make a first impression when we meet someone for the first time.
We’ve heard it all before. A fireplace with dark, outdated, and dare I say “ugly” brick has a homeowner exasperated, frustrated, and ready to pay any price to make it go away. Well, there is a solution that makes sense, doesn’t cost a fortune, and gives amazing results. Painting your brick fireplace gives a face-lift not only to your fireplace but to your entire room.
“Brick-Anew Paint Kit to the Rescue!”
Carmen and John are both actors and have limited time to devote to each of their home renovation projects. (Maybe you’ve seen John riding a motorcycle with Flo in those cool Progressive Insurance commercials!) They have to be able to go for an audition on a moment’s notice so they weren’t real thrilled of adding another complicated project to their already long list.
When Carmen called me a couple of months ago asking some questions about our Brick-Anew fireplace paint kit, we hit it off right away. She described how she and her husband, John, had just bought a house in the suburbs of LA and how HGTV was filming in their new home for a new show in their “House Hunters” series. She sent me a picture of her living room area and the old brick fireplace she was trying to figure out how to remodel.
Choosing the right paint for any job is a hassle when you have thousands of options in front of you. However, it’s not difficult to narrow down your choices when you know what you’re looking for.
