Steps to Know Before Painting Brick

Before painting brick, it is important to be prepared to do it properly. After you pick out the paint you want, you will need to follow the guide below.

  1. Clean the brick well to get debris and dirt off that can be easily piled up on the current brick. You can remove it by scrubbing with a brush and soapy water.
  2. Lie down tarps on your floor around the painting area to prevent paint from damaging your floors or carpet.
  3. Apply latex primer to help prevent the paint from peeling off and not sticking to the brick.
  4. Apply paint using a roller or sprayer, but be sure to coat each piece of brick well!

Once you are finished, let the paint dry before touching it.
