She’s a Freak, Oww

Unaware of the title, for the longest time I thought the Commodores song Brick House said, She’s a Freak, Oww.

Take a look at these pictures of exposed brick in the house.  I love this look and think it adds lots of texture to a space.

After my friend told me her new house had exposed brick in the kitchen, I thought she was one lucky gal.

But then she said her boyfriend, excuse me, fiance (she just got engaged!), wanted to knock it down.

Perplexed beyond belief, I felt it should be my mission to defend my exposed brick case.

But I was too late. He simply did not like it and tore it down.

I wanted so badly to assure her that the durability of this brick could quite possibly prevent her kitchen from collapsing. Not that it was unstable or anything, but I needed backup to prove my point.

The Three Little Pigs. Did he forget that story?

Not even a little bit, I wanted to ask?

He doesn’t even want to paint it?

Nope. No brick in this kitch.

Hope I didn’t make you feel bad, GC. But maybe you can make him feel bad.

Kidding, kidding.

Thanks for stopping by,
