Turns out this project was much easier than I thought it would be. I researched painted stone fireplaces and found some great techniques, two of which I combined. There is thedry paint method and the part water, part paint method. I decided to use the dry paint method with a bowl of water on the side; the combination worked perfect for this project.
I will include supplies needed below and a video to help you, should you decide to take the challenge. If you do get inspired by this post, let me know if you have any questions. So happy I finally did it! It looks much lighter and cleaner.
1) Vacuum with attachment hose
2) Vinegar, large scrub brush and bowl of water to rinse
3) Thick drop cloth for mantel and hearth
4) Paint (I used a combination of two cans I already had to get the right blended shade of tan and grey.)
5) Large paint brush
6) Containers with wide top opening for large brush to dip in paint and water
7) Rag to soak up excess water and blot paint
8) Cardboard to brush excess paint off
This hearth of stone makeover reminded me of a heart of stone makeover post I wrote last year. If you check out that link, let me know if it spoke to you. Have a great day and don't be afraid to try new projects!
