WATCH: New homeowners Katie & Boo transform their old brick fireplace into the centerpiece of their living room using Brick-Anew.
When Katie first called us, we knew that her husband, Boo, was skeptical about painting over their brick fireplace.
Which, I might add, is totally understandable. Preserving and restoring old brick can make for a great aesthetic, and there’s enough nauseating pictures of poorly painted fireplaces floating around the web to make someone nervous about giving it a shot. But if Katie wants the modern, updated look of painted brick, and Boo wants to keep the look of natural brick, is there a solution?

One of the best parts about Twilight Taupe is how it opens up the room while still complementing dark, warm tones like wood and leather. Katie and Boo’s fireplace is the perfect example of this. Apparently it also makes the perfect backdrop for the family photo!
