I grouted my brick wall.
It is constructed of simple wood panels I bought from Lowe’s.
I loved it, I really did but it was very dark and not quite the vintage, cottagy look I was looking for.
Not to mention my couch was a few to many shades of darkness….
So, we replaced the couch with the cute Ektorp loveseat I love from IKEA (less than $500).
And I decided that I definitely needed to grout in between the brick.
I used a regular sanded, self mixing grout in the color bone.
It worked out great. I mixed it in a disposable container with enough water to make it the perfect consistency then I used the trowel to smear it into the cracks in between the brick.
I also made it imperfect on purpose because the imperfections are actually what makes it look a little more real…
Well, at least, that is what I think…
The process took a little bit of time but it was easier than easy to do…
and if you are interested in trying it yourself, it works & looks great!
So don’t procrastinate, I am sure you will love it too…
I changed the picture on the shelf in the hall while I was at it…I really like this Photograph & I love just having the one picture,
I have been very into simplifying & de-cluttering my life lately…
Wood planked walls, open shelving & we honestly didn’t spend that much…
I just have to finish a few more details, then I will start bringing it to you a part at a time.
soon I think…very soon ;-)
In the meantime, We built some barn doors, HARDWARE & ALL ( have you seen the price of barn door hardware???? ugh) for around $75.
We prettied-up our garage door for $40.
& I will be sharing tutorials on sewing furniture covers & a very easy pillow.
Not to mention recipes, napkin folds & more…
So, Live Beautifully my Friends!
I will see you very soon!
