Using Lime Wash Glaze Over Painted Brick to Create a Brick “Washed” Look

Creating a “distressed” look over old painted brick walls

On this job, the customer wanted to cover up the many layers of bad paint jobs over the brick walls in the office.

I suggested  a base coat of a red brick color and a lime wash glaze. This created a look of an old European distressed look while not actually re-created red brick.

The result looked good. The brick walls and skim-coat walls with color looks great.

Here are some pics My helper, Dave, and I worked on a job out in Queens NY, and repaired a ceiling in a one family house. We are applying joint compound and plaster of Paris to the ceiling. It could be called a “Skim-Coat” because we cover a wide area of space as opposed to a small area which would be consider a “patch”.
