I wanted to share some ideas of what to do with an outdated brick fireplace.  My favorite idea involves tiling over the brick as seen in the image above, but a cheaper option is to paint the brick as seen in the images below.  Beware once you paint brick there is no going back!  If you want a solid looking color for your fireplace find a good primer that will fill the porous material of the brick.  You can also do a whitewashing of the brick that will mute the boldness of a lot of red brick. Antissa tile is on sale and could look great over a fireplace.
