So after we bought or house I was itching to paint. Because I mean isn’t that what we do? We envision the house as our own, how we would have it. So I slapped on some yellow paint on my kitchen to change it up without planning how I really wanted it. Well, after about three years I realized while I like yellow, I don’t want circus yellow on the walls. So I started talking to my husband about tackling it. Here’s how our brick kitchen update turned out!

So what should you get for achieving a brick kitchen look? While there are many ways to do it, we went in a specific direction. We wanted something that didn’t cost us an arm and a leg, but also something that would accomplish what I was looking for.

Picking the design

I wanted something to reflect my current style, farmhouse. I just love the semi- rustic, vintage-ish feel to the farmhouse look. Before, I used to decorate with a lot of reds and browns but I quickly was sold on the idea that the farmhouse style was right for me. Something I’ve been seeing a lot of is the farmhouse brick kitchen. I fell in love with those kitchens on Instagram and had to design mine too!

The first thing we did was look at some stores for supplies. We got some ideas at our local stores but I ended up going on amazon and getting brick wallpaper. Yep, wallpaper. Not just any wallpaper but self-adhesive wallpaper. Peel and stick. No messing around with paste and trying to get the paper to stick and dry.

Getting the wallpaper up

Once we started and got the hang of it, it got a lot easier to do. We had to stick a small section at the ceiling line and slowly work our way down making sure no bubbles showed up. Since our walls aren’t perfectly square on all sides, we had to work our way down and cut off the excess if there were any extra wallpaper pieces hanging off the edges.

Once the wallpaper was up, I RAN, not walked to hobby lobby and got some adorable farmhouse accessories to go in my new brick kitchen. One of the things I purchased was this amazing metal pipe rack. Go check your local hobby lobby or here is something similar on Amazon.

I’m undecided if I want to leave it the way it is, only two walls done as accent walls, or do every wall. Let me know in the comments below what you think I should do. Our brick kitchen update started out rocky but we love the result. If you want to see more of my kitchen, I have some instagran highlights saved on my profile here. Thanks for stopping by!
