Follow Along To Do the Project
Give the brick a good scrubbing and let it dry. Add 1 part paint to 3 parts water and stir until blended. Using FrogTape, tape off areas to protect wood, floors, anything not to be whitewashed. Burnish the edges of the FrogTape using thumbnail.
Stir the watered down paint mixture frequently and carefully brush on the mixture moving horizontally. Have a rag handy for wiping up drips and splatters.
Carefully remove FrogTape and let dry.
