I'm about to open a HUGE can of worms with this
Before and After Friday post but here goes -
(You just gasped, didn't you?)
I know, I know. Painting brick is a major decision, one that can

The traditional Atlanta home, above, was beautiful before
but now looks more like a French chalet.

The Curb Appeal went through the roof with this transformation:
Our old brick house was painted when we purchased it but I loved
painted brick homes even before we bought it. I'm probably not going

Have a great weekend, friends, and good luck
picking out a turkey for next Thursday!
