Before=UGLY red, tired, old brick!
Whitewashing brick is fairly easy. To clean, all I did was give it a dusting. Gathered my materials. Mixed water and paint 1/2 and 1/2. I used antique white. Then I painted and wiped with a dry rag. Do it in small sections. and Voila. ;)
Aaaand, since my painting jobs usually include at least one of these. Oops! :/ part of the 2 hours that it took to do this was cleaning my mess up.
After=me happy. :D
