Learn how to install thin brick veneer in your home for a rustic vintage look. Then add some real amethyst crystals to make things feel really magical. This tutorial will show you how to recreate this project on an interior wall in your home.
Long time readers of this blog will know that I seem to have an obsession with brick. This project is the 3rd brick veneer wall I have installed in my home and my 4th project (the other one was a brick floor in my bathroom)
Every time my neighbor comes over she says, “Wow! You really like brick.”
Yes, yes I do.
This latest brick project is like my former thin brick wall but with a bit of a twist- I added amethyst crystals!
I knew I wanted to put up real brick in the bedroom since I added the white brick wall paper a few years ago.
A few months ago I was in Lowes shopping and found 10 cases of thin brick veneer for $12 case (normally $60 per case) so I bought them all. My husband gets an additional %10 off with the military discount so I saved even more money.
I swear if not paying full price on anything was an Olympic sport I would win gold.
I had this weird idea to attach amethyst crystals to the walls and have it look like they were sort of magically growing out of the brick wall where some old brick pieces had fallen off.
What I would have really liked to do was install an entire wall of amethyst chunks but that would have cost about $10,000 and having that kind of disposable income to spend on crystals isn’t about to happen anytime soon, so I settled with the chunks. I bought several flats of amethyst crystals clusters.
