My parents painted our (now my) house when I was about 10. We converted our overhead garage door into a walk in, and couldn’t find bricks to match the existing, so I got stuck helping my dad paint it. Pretty much the same experience Fred described above. Rolled out a lot, touched up the seems with a brush. Now I have the only painted-brick house in the neighborhood and I hate it, but blasting off the paint would be a ton of work.

Oh, and it was about this time that my dad started looking to hire someone with experience spraying (he was a painting contractor), so I tend to think that would have been his preferred option.
