Staining a brick fireplace?

JennN's picture

Has anyone ever tried this with success? My cuz was telling me about a friend of hers who tried using a wood stain on her brick fireplace and it turned out amazing. I have a fireplace that divides btwn my living room and kitchen. The colour of the brick is terrible and I would love to do something with it, other than paint it or redo it in a different stone.

If anyone can find before and after pics of redone fireplaces I would love to see them. I need some inspiration for mine as it's driving me nuts!
