Go for the brush over spray when painting stone hearth
Jan 17, 2016 1:00 AM - Q. The wood stove hearth we have in our lower level is flagstone. My wife wants to brighten things up down there by painting the flagstone white. I am wondering how best to do that. Right now, I am thinking of removing the stove, vacuuming off all the stone as well as using a bristle brush to clean it with soap and water, spraying a primer and then finishing by spraying a good-quality latex paint on the stone and mortar.
