Faux Brick WalkwayJuly 18th, 2014 in member junk
I've wanted to do this for years, ever since I saw it in an issue of Handyman Magazine. They used a 6'' roller and special cement paint. I just tweaked the materials and directions a bit to make it less expensive.
It didn't turn out perfect which is good, I wanted it to blend with the rest of my salvaged brick ''patios'' and garden edgings that I put together like a jigsaw puzzles with: cemented together clumps, cement left on, halves and pieces of all different sized bricks from my Dad's used brick pile.
I ended up putting one coat of cement sealer on which I was torn about. I wanted it to develop that worn look, but was afraid that when it got to the look I wanted, I'd never get around to putting the sealer on.
