Question by patticakewithfrosting: Opinions regarding whether to paint brick fireplaces?
I have a ceiling to floor, nearly 8 ft. wide real, red brick fireplace, and am consdiering painting it a white-ish gray, to make it look kind of antiquish. Opinions? Suggestions? Thanks.

If you paint it , it will be hard to remove and you may not like it because of the size of it. White on something like that can be overbearing. You can put a white mantel on it on the point where it will look good to the eye. You can hang copper pans or cleaning things that will look good on the top over the mantel. Or hang a very large framed picture about it. Look at pictures that appeal to you that would look something like what you have and see how they were decorated.
