Burning Question: To Paint Or Not To Paint?

This is one of those topics that we just know will stir things up. Where do you stand when it comes to brick houses. Specifically: to paint… or not to paint?

We know some people are adamantly against painting exterior brick while others love the look of a charming painted brick cottage. And what about whitewashing, liming or sandblasting for that aged effect? Is the only acceptable brick treatment to leave it au naturale? Or do you prefer the look of brick with a bit of paint on top?

Psst- This pic is from a House Crashing adventure of yore.
