Step 1
Clean your brick with dish soap, water and cloth or a rag.

Step 2
Apply FrogTape Painter's Tape to all surrounding surfaces to prevent any paint bleeds.

Step 3
Mix equal parts paint with water in a bucket. Adjust mixture until you get the look you want.

Step 4
Brush on the whitewash, first on the grout lines, then on the bricks. Wipe the wet bricks and grout with a clean cloth as you go.

While the paint is still wet, remove the painter's tape.

Sit back, relax and enjoy your updated fireplace!
