We've been doing a little painting

This is what the front room looked like when we moved in. It was a nice color but a little too dark for such a small space.
The brick was a little lighter than the walls but it still was a little too dark.
So we painted the walls and it lightened up the room. But I still wanted to paint the brick and ceilings. I'm not a fan of painted brick but in our case it was already painted. Jesús didnt want to paint the brick.
So we painted the dining area ceiling the other night and we really like the way it looked and when we got to the brick I started painting it a little
Jesús saw that I had painted the brick and he kept on painting. It was a big difference. While we painted we noticed the part that wasn't painted white it looked kinda shadowy. You can see the difference in the color at the bottom of the brick. Much brighter.
Then we finished the rest of the ceiling. Doesn't it look so much brighter?? It makes the room feel much bigger.

Hopefully I can go get the paint for the chairs soon to add a splash of color.
