DIY: Pool Brick Makeover

We decided to give our backyard a mini facelift by painting the 90's brick dark charcoal. This project was definitely time consuming, but oh so worth it. One question I've gotten quite a bit is about temperature (since black typically gets hot) but so far we haven't noticed a difference. Brick in general gets pretty hot as-is, so the color isn't excelling that by much. I've listed the materials we used below if you want to try this yourself!

Here is our newly TLC'd pool now:

Here's what it was before!

*Be sure to power wash your brick in advance and let it dry completely before starting!
