Use 2 different paints White base & Top accent Beige. Paint all the brick and grout with 2 coats of the white/satin latex. Make sure the brick is completely covered (No primer). Use a roller for rough surfaces and an old brush. Use a foam roller for smooth surfaces with the 2nd color. KEY: Load the roller, then roll OFF as much as you can. Then begin GENTLY and LIGHTLY rolling the surface of the bricks.
