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

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?

Take a look at: How To Paint Brick

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.
