Looks fantastic. Just how labor intensive was that?

That is super cool. There's a fireplace at my current job that the HO doesn't know what to do with. Think I'll suggest something like that.

A total of about 13 hours.

First day was masking and spraying the primer coat which was 2 hours and included gun cleanup.

Second day was 11 hours start to finish which included painting the moldings around the fireplace and crown moulding along the ceiling which were just factory primed. Also includes removing masking and packing out.

Thanks for your comment CApainter! Can't complain at all about the compensation for this one. 13 hours labor netted a week's wages on this one project. The rest of the week is gravy as they say

13 hours. Obviously not your first time for this type of project. Well done.
Did you layout or determine the pattern of colors?

Looks really cool. I just wonder how they keep anything on that mantle.

Layout was completely random. Knowing there was just over 500 bricks with a 5 color scheme made it quite simple. Started with a grey and beige using a random spacing of 4-5 bricks. Then filled in the rest with the remaining 3 greys. Working from the top (side to side) and down is what I have come to find helps speed the project along.
