Last week, I showed you some of the makeover we have completed on one side of our house. The post was focusing on the DIY shutters and landscaping, but the topic of conversation on my facebook page was about the painted brick.
Did y’all know that people get real opinionated about painted brick?
Yeah, me either.
I kind of think it has to do with what part of the US you live in. Here in Kentucky, painted brick is a beautiful, “Southern” thing.
I love driving down in some of the wealthiest parts of Lexington and just looking at all of the beautifully painted brick homes. They. Are. Dreamy.
That’s John Calipari’s house above. He’s the head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team. GO BIG BLUE!!!
A couple of years ago, when I was searching for the perfect color to paint my brick, I went around taking pictures of all of the painted brick homes in this area. I just fell in love with them.
I wrote a post about the homes, and shared them on my blog. Click on the picture below to view those homes.
My readers LOVED that post and begged me to take more pictures of homes in my area.
So I wrote this post…
Click on the picture to see more gorgeous painted brick homes.
So what do you think?
Do you like painted brick homes?
Or do you like natural brick better?
What is popular where you live?
