Hello AT, How can I make a brick wall shiny. Shellac? How many coats will it take? I have already put 3 coats of sealer on it. I want it to shine. It is inside my apartment, not outside. Thanks in advance, Cathy

Dear Cathy, Good luck! We find shiny brick walls very uncomfortable making inside a home, but you probably have your reasons. We've never done it ourselves, but here's a few good links we found that should get you started: • Brick Wall question at This Old HouseSealing Exposed Brick WallGood Questions: Painting & Brick Walls?How can I get a smooth, shiny surface on my thin brick tiles? Anyone else??
