Painted Brick Walls

by Erika Woelfel

The question comes in quite often: Is it possible to paint a brick wall? The answer is YES. While I personally like the look of a natural brick, changing or updating a brick feature is possible. BEHR PREMIUM SPECIALTY COATINGS® offers a Masonry, Stucco and Brick paint for both interior and exterior applications.

For those looking for something a different, below are examples showing how to use color to create a new look and feel for a brick wall.

A brick wall painted blue helps create a more traditional look in this eclectic dining room.

A loft bedroom gets a dramatic bohemian make-over with a brick wall painted black.


The rough texture on this painted brick wall lends a rustic appeal in a clean, modern kitchen.


It is possible to paint exterior brick as well. This gives a completely different look and feel to the outside of your home. Look for special Behr products at your local Home Depot store.


Colorfully yours,
