I just bought a condo that I love, except for one MAJOR flaw. The already small kitchen has a wall covered with black, gray, and tan bricks (not the whole brick, just about 1/8" thick) held on with a sort of black glue (not mortar). These make the kitchen seem tiny and really dark. Has anyone seen anything like this before, and can I get rid of them, or should I just paint over them? You can post on here or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
