Modern Ranch Reno: How to Re-Grout a Brick Fireplace

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.
