White Brick

I’m painting the concrete brick walls in the master bedroom and bathroom. They were dirty and marred by splatters of concrete from the floor.

I used the left over low VOC primer from painting the walls and the Yolo no VOC paint from a craigslist purchase.

Before painting I had to caulk the space between the brick and the drywall walls.

I used foam backer but had purchased 1″ diameter because the space seemed so big and that was way too wide so I cut it in half and in some places in quarters. The caulk line was thick but better than the open space.

I taped the walls and ceilings to get good paint lines and not mar the tan surfaces. We moved a wall in the bathroom and that unpainted space had to have mortar and old caulk chipped off. It is not very visible with just the primer on the wall.

I also cleaned up the floor behind the tub to start laying the tile so that I can install the tub and start tiling around the toilet and sink so they can be installed too.
