new updates [old] Bricks in our Cozy Cottage Casa: Bricks are officially all installed!! The butler pantry floors are fully laid and grouted and the stove cover is likewise all laid and grouted is injected.Since the last update of Brick [HERE] We chose the grout color, to show lots of the different particles in the grout, to give it a very natural look without being too white or too dark, a solid sanded ‘lime’ grout used. I laid the bricks and injected the grout. It’s a big step in this renovation of the kitchen area, it’s far from finished, but we didn’t want to leave it too long…
The next step towards completion is sealing the entire brick. The reason I paused the bricking process was because I wanted to make sure the grout was completely dry before sealing the grout. Once we get to the sealing process and what we choose, we will share all the details.If If you want to see more of the brick and kitchen process in video format, check out my ‘Kitchen Reno 1’ and ‘Kitchen Reno 2’ highlights on my Instagram.

Oh my surprise!we found something new [very old] A refurbished shop window in the Butler Pantry last weekend! These are leaning against the wall that separates the butler pantry from the hallway. I can’t wait to finish framing this wall!
I really like the brick finish and am very happy with my choice of brick and grout. I hope sharing this helps you if you want to choose a brick finish for your home. See how the bricks started, the bricks we chose, and what we do to make the bricks look like they’ve always been in his 1800s farmhouse. [HERE]. Thank you for stopping by our blog each day to see what we’re up to. Stay tuned for future brick updates!
