Hi Mary3.

 

Thank you for your question.

 

For your painting project, you will want to be sure to sand and clean the surface you want to paint, otherwise the paint you apply will peel in a few months.

 

In addition to your sanding a cleaning preparation, may need to use a primer, especially if you are going to a lighter color over your chocolate colored bricks.

 

What color you use, is up to you. If you are not sure which way to go on your color choice, you can go to BEHR.com. Choose “Browse Paint Colors”, then click on the box on the picture that says “change rooms”.  This will bring up a selection bar under “Change Image”.  There you will be able to select “Exterior”.  There you will be able to Choose “Upload Photo” of a picture of your house and the BEHR program will change the picture based on what colors you choose.






 

You can also go to the APP store on your smart phone and download an App there that will help you out as well. 

 

Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
