Answer: 
Well by my calculations it takes 8.4 bricks to equal 1 square foot by themselves, so 50 bricks in a box comes to 6 square feet. So I'm guessing the difference between 6 square feet and the 7.3 the manufacturer lists is the grout space. So you would need 41 boxes. Ouch.

Answer: 
@RenoLady - Can you elaborate? You saw you were forced to buy extra to complete the project; but the dimensions that you give do not reflect your comment. 7 sq. ft. = 3.5' x 2'. 10 sq. ft. = 5' x 2'

Answer: 
A 5×2 foot area equals 10 sqft so it sounds like Reno lady came out ahead? If 7 sqft is what the manufacturer claims then you would need aprox 43 boxes + or - waste

Answer: 
Kristen,
Know that there is a major sizing flaw on the website. It says one box covers 7 sq ft which is completely inaccurate. One box covered a 5 ft x 2 ft area for me a pictured in my review. I was unexpectedly forced to spend $500 more to complete the rest of my project.

For a follow up question i was thinking about using premixed thinset which I had purchased but never used. I realize its not real thinset but mastic with sand added but seeing as I'm only doing a small vertical area over a cabinet that doesn't ever get wet-at least I hope not - I think it should be fine.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Bricks for DIY project EVER! My husband, George, and I are doing a renovation to our backyard shed. To get an 'old world charm' look & feel to the exterior, we purchased Old Mill Bricks. We've never worked with this material before & we were a little leary - but these thin brick flats (made from cut kiln-fired clay bricks) are quick and truly easy to install. Easy-Peasy! The vintage look is amazing & the cost - affordable. Thank you, Home Depot, for offering such a great product. Sincerely, George &Toni Perry September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product...was as expected...a thin brick The thin brick was all in good shape when picked up. I had thought there would be some cracked ones but there were none. This brick is an "old style" brick with many chipped edges and rounded edges. The brick looks best when it is "standing proud" of the grout/mortar (about 3/16"). I bought the corner bricks and the flats. They all applied easily with modified thin-set over cement board. We refaced a fireplace with the bricks. Grouted with type "s" mortar. Cleaned the mortar haze with muriatic acid diluted with water (wear protection). In the photos the mortar has not been applied yet. The family thinks the fireplace looks great! April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful results These bricks were easy to install, look authentic and we are very pleased with our purchase June 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Old Mill bricks These ariived very soon after I ordered them and out of 6 boxes I had only two broken bricks... Which is no biggie considering all the cuts one makes anyway! I found a video showing how to do a one step install with half mortar and half grout for a real old fashioned look and no one believes we did it ourselves! It turned out gorgeous!!!!! Best kitchen back splash in the neighborhood. September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by looks great I ordered this product for a wall behind a home bar. It turned out great. The packaging must have improved from the reviews I read as there were very few cracked bricks. I have tiled quite a bit, and found the brick a little more difficult to cut than traditional tile. I think a tile saw would have been helpful. As brick is not a smooth surface the grouting was also a little more challenging. It was tough to get the grout out of them. I think next time I will just use a thicker mortar and forgo the grout. I sealed the brick with high gloss sealer, It looked so good that one person thought it was wallpaper. I think using a lower gloss sealer would give it a more rustic look. December 8, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not the best too many chipped bricks in the two boxes I have enough to finish the job September 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Finished a job started in the 80's We had a bathroom pipe leak and the plumbers destroyed a portion of our kitchen wall to repair, they left me with a removed black pipe and new PVC. Now I have a 2'x10"x4' plaster repair. As I looked at the job before me, the thin brick flats I installed in the 80"s right up to this area stood out. I thought I wished "they" still made those bricks? Jumped on HomeDepot.com and the other on, and found these. They are smaller than my originals, that I have 3 horizontal rows and a vertical row with cut 2' bricks. I added the mortar and bricks looks great. I painted the originals white as I did our original dark walnut cabinets. Cant tell my "hack" drywall job. Everyone is happy. Pipe ~ Please don't leak! January 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thin Brick for Mudroom floor The product (Boston Mill Colonial Thin Brick) was delivered early which was perfect. There was no damage. The bricks were exactly what I wanted for a rustic and durable surface for my mudroom floor. I have used this product on many applications throughout my house and expect to use it again to beautify my home's foundation. January 12, 2016
