  1. Transform your concrete porch floor with a charming brick makeover using thin bricks from Old Mill Brick. This DIY project is beginner-friendly and adds a historic, rustic feel to your outdoor space. Start by thoroughly cleaning the concrete, then install corner bricks with mortar and spacers for even placement. Work in small sections to apply mortar and lay brick sheets. Follow these steps for a stunning, durable brick porch.

    I LOVE the brick on your porch. What a great idea! I was going to paint ours but this is a much better idea. Also, what type of siding do you have, and was it pre-painted? We are looking to re-side our house and are looking for a dark green color. It has to be sturdy siding as we live in Montana, and have very extreme weather conditions.
    Thanks so much for sharing your project!

    How did this do over the winter? And how cold or wet do you get? Also do they break easily. Love the look

      They’ve held up perfectly! Moisture varies year to year but our winters can get as low as -15° and our summers get to be 100°. These bricks are made to be incredibly durable and suitable for a wide variety of weather conditions so we’ve had no cracks, loose bricks, or crumbling grout!

    Beautiful job! Have wanted to do this to my small porch for some time, your tutorial will be very useful, very detailed, thank you for that. I am very curious about your columns and their attachment to your porch, is that wood or pvc they sit on? I have had so many issues with rot over the 25 years I have had my porch.

    • Danica says:

      Hi Pam, thank you so much! Our posts are cemented into the ground and we built boxes around the base of them. The boxes are built with LP siding and are primed, painted, and caulked so we shouldn’t see rot as long as they’re well maintained!

    Where did you purchase these brick sheets?

    Would this work on a driveway?

    Without adding height to the steps, you just created a tripping hazard. stair risers, including the landing cannot vary more the 3/8″, nor exceed 7-1/2″ in height. I looks as though the landing is now about 1/2 higher with the bricks installed.

    • Danica says:

      The added height of the brick was accounted for when we installed the stone steps. All steps are the exact same height.

    Just beautiful! I hope to do the same with ours this summer!
