Brick Wall (part 3)

Brick Wall (part 2)

Alright, so I showed you the start of my brick wall trial board the other day. Measuring, taping off, and smearing joint compound around were the easy parts. Next, I needed to try and match the existing brick in my kitchen. Eek. Not gonna lie; I was not sure I could pull this off. Faux …
