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:

How can I get a smooth, shiny surface on my thin brick tiles?

Anyone else??
