Bricks (Part 75)

So I decided to do the bricks in a reddish-pink color, after all.  The stonework is turning out sort of limestone-y and I love the look of old French architecture with that scheme.  I was going to finish the exterior of Merriman Park in a white/cream color story because I thought it would work with my interior decor better.  I'm thinking about repainting, anyway...

The new gouge works like a dream!  Can't wait to start "laying bricks!"

Here's the base-color:

I like how the quoins "pop" --ugh!  I hate that word...the most over-used word on HGTV.  I can't believe I used it. 

Well got to get dinner going, I guess.  We're having Surf  'n' Turf , LOL!

Your dream is becoming more of a reality! The color contrast really does emphasize the stone detailing. I like it! This is a beautiful project.
