DIY: Faux Brick Wall


Hey ya’ll! Thank you for your patience in waiting for this post, we had an unwanted visitor wreak havoc on our town! Hurricane Florence was NO JOKE. I would like to send out all my thoughts and prayers to everyone effected by this horrible hurricane, one of the worst storms I have ever seen.

I wanted to share this DIY faux brick wall with you guys! I am pretty proud of this project that I recently completed for such a small price! 

Generally, I would not do something like this because I much prefer an authentic brick wall. But, after seeing a friend’s results- I decided to give it a try! This is one of my favorite projects for two reasons: cheap & easy. 


Materials Used:

-Brick Paneling:

-Wall Spackle:

- Black DeWalt Chalk:

-Small Terry Cloth Towel

-Circular Saw: used to cut the brick panel

-Sheetrock nails : used to nail the brick panel to wall ( instead of glue)


Instead of a white wash brick- I wanted a different color. I decided to try a black chalk powder that I mixed in slowly. But, I recommend doing the white wash for everyone interested in making a faux brick wall of their own. It looks a lot better, in my opinion! 


I used a terry cloth towel which was very helpful to dab on the sparkling to give it a realistic grout look!


Take a look at this close up!


I decided to use our master bathroom, the wall above the vanities needed something to complete the space.


Originally- we were going to tile the wall, but due to time and money that wasn’t the best option. This gave me the perfect opportunity to try the faux brick wall and I’m so glad I did! 

I strayed from the directions of the “original DIY” guidelines that is linked below.
