I really did need to do something to update a brick fireplace. Since I moved into my house one of the first things I was dying to get my hands on was this fireplace in our main family room. I wanted to try and re-grout the brick fireplace so that it looked more my style. Never ever have I re-grouted anything before and I did not have any experience with brick but I really wanted to make it happen. So I was totally shocked at how easy re-grouting my brick fireplace really was. Using 4 bags of white mortar and a little bit of hard work I re-grouted my fireplace. The steps are very easy. Anyone with any kind of DIY experience can do this project. Although, it did take time for sure but that could be that I have very tall ceilings and it made it a bit more difficult to do the fireplace.

I love how the white mortar really helped to soften the look in this space.
I decided to make a video just for you to show you how easy it really was.
How to: Grout a Brick Fireplace
Here is a list of the materials:
- White Mortar or White Grout ( I showed the guy working at Marvel in Mesa, Az which is stone and brick store the size of the fireplace and he told me how many bags or mortar I needed.)
- Piping Bag
- Brick or tile Trowel
- Grout Mixture
- Drill to use with grout mixture
I love how easy this project was and it totally changed the whole look of my house. By adding white mortar to dating brick it transformed my living room which is in the center of my home. I love this transformation.
