Outdoor stone fireplace kits or family room’s fireplace has seen better days. The fireplace is full of soot and just plain uninteresting. You have wondered if you can paint the gray stone fireplace. Yes you can. Like other surfaces in your home, some preparation must be done first – cleaning the stove and priming the stone. When the preparation is complete, latex paint or a toned masonry sealant can be applied.
Before painting your gray outdoor stone fireplace kits, clean all the accessories from the mantle and remove any stands, wood and other objects from the inside. Then wipe the stone with a clean cloth or towel to remove loose dirt and dust. Use rubber gloves and a face mask. Rinse gray stone with clean water at least twice. Let stone eat drought for two days. Then wipe the stone with a dry cloth or towel to remove any residue.

Apply a Masonry Primer & Paint
After the outdoor stone fireplace kits are dry, apply three layers of masonry primer to the stone. The Freemasonry Primer is found on hardware and building warehouses. Follow all instructions and recommendations for the primer container. After the primer has dried, apply two layers of latex paint or a toned masonry sealant to the gray stone fireplace. Be aware that latex paint can withstand temperatures of up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit, so this color can only be used on the outside of the fireplace.
