I have recently purchased a house, and I am trying to update it without spending a lot of money. The backsplash in the kitchen is done in a thin brick finish. Iwould like to paint over it but I don't know which type of paint to use, or what technique to use. Please help!

Hello and I join you in your quest to cover over that outdated brick backsplash. I also have purchased a home with the same "cheesy" brick backsplash and am considering painting it over the alternative of removing which is time comsuming and will perhaps damage the wall. I am going to use a regular semi gloss latex paint that is easy to wash clean. Not sure if that will work or not but will also look for paint specifically made to cover masonry as well. Good luck and let me know what you do!
