Mallory’s Classic Colonial: Exterior Brick Reveal

This post is sponsored by Behr Paint Company. All ideas and opinions are my own, as always.

This exterior painted brick project was been one of the most rewarding DIY projects I’ve taken on. This is my third time painting the exterior of a house myself so I’ve nailed down the process and I can’t wait to share all my tips and tricks for painting the exterior of a home.

Exterior Brick Paint

We used two coats of BEHR® Masonry, Stucco & Brick Paint – White in a Flat sheen for the brick. We used a large airless paint sprayer to get the job done and we were able to complete the entire front of the house in just one day.

Red Front Door

For the front door, we used a angled paint brush and BEHR ULTRA™ Exterior Paint. The color is “Red my Mind” in Semi Gloss.

DIY Black Painted Shutters

We hand painted our shutters with BEHR ULTRA – Exterior, Color: Carbon in Satin. You can read my tips for painting doors and shutters here.

I can’t wait to complete the full tutorial and FAQ for painting exteriors. If you have any questions you want answered, please leave them in the comments section.

    I have been wanting to paint my brick for two years! This looks fabulous! Everyone is going to paint their house Now! Ha ha I can’t wait for the tutorial! How do you keep the spray from the roof? And did you mask all the windows?! Maybe, you just have way more skill than most of us with the sprayer?

    Heya terrific website! Does running a blog similar to this take a large amount of work? I have virtually no expertise in programming however I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject but I just wanted to ask.
