Faux Brick Walkway

I have been working in the backyard ever since this terrible winter here in CT has been letting up. My backyard is so small but has tons of potential. I stumbled upon this on country livings website and just loved the end result. I was toying with the idea of varying the colors to greys and ambers mimicing stone. I do so love the brick. It is a real focal piont and the end result looks so wonderful.
Do you have any cute cost
effective ideas for a small concrete patio?



1. 1 gallon of Benjamin Moore's MoorGard Low Lustre Latex House Paint (#103-4B) in the following color formula

(the paint dealer will know what this means):
n OY 1x8, RX 5x, BK 1x22, MA 3x, WH 1x16, TG 18
2. Clean the area you plan to paint, and let it dry thoroughly.

3. Beginning in a corner, use a 4-inch roller to paint "bricks." Make each one about 7 inches long, leaving about 3/4 inch between each brick. Stagger adjoining rows so bricks form a wall pattern.

Isn't it so cute. Thanks Margaret! Snow B. Did your brick pattern last very long under the weather? that is my only concern.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
