Ugly Brick house
I have bought a house with ugly brick and want ideas on how to improve looks!
I would like to install a wrap around porch maybe that will hide some of it!

Is the brick just old where some sandblasting would would give it a new look. Do you have any pics? That would help.

Bobs right, we need some pics!

I have always wanted a wrap around porch.

Stick rocks on it?

Is it the color of the bricks that bother you or their condition? I know that you can paint bricks with to change its color, if that helps?

Hope this helps you.

I think Chris is right. It is possible and easy to bring an old brick wall back to life by painting it.
