Negar has a good question: Anyone have any opinions on painting or staining exterior brick surfaces? We are looking to buy the pictured home; it is in a great neighborhood close to downtown Nashville, but its has boring curbside appeal for me. Of course we'll do landscaping and maybe add a tiny front door cover/porch.
