We have quite a bit of exposed brick in our kitchen.
Over on the hearth wall
And over the gas cook top
We have surround sound throughout the house and every room has a speaker except for the formal 1/2 bath!! Built-in wall speakers usually come in your choice of white or white (or at least they did when we built this house 11 years ago!!) and they stood out horribly on the brick.
So one day I got out the paints, found a natural sponge and a small brush and off I went! This little project happened way before my blogging days so no before or during pics, sorry.Basically, I sponged on the the various paint colors to create a close enough finish to the bricks surrounding the speakers, then I painted in the grout lines and added some shading to make them look as realistic as possible.
Can you see the speakers? Well I know you can, there's one in the upper right corner of this pic and the other is just peeking out from behind that chair. Better than two white rectangles aren't they?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
