Can I paint the old stone on the front of my home?
kimber123March 16, 2013
Has any ever painted the stone on exterior. I would like to update the colors of the stone. The siding is a very pale creamy yellow. The stone is 70's gold. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you

I agree, try changing the siding color first.

Paint the stone! If u don't like it now you never will. It's always going to bother you. Good luck.

I think you could. We painted our stone fireplace twenty something years ago. Just work with a local paint store for products and colors.

I agree that the siding is the issue, not the stone. The roof also looks like it might be time for a redo. I would also consider some landscape work to freshen things up.

Painting the stone will simply look awful. It will still look like stone but just look strange. As noted above a new siding color is the key. Pick a siding color that blends with the stone color. Also changing the trim from dark brown to an off white will make the stone the darkest color on the house and give it more of the character stone can give a home.

kivi is right. leave the stone alone. pressure wash or replace the roof. your place is seriouslyly in need of landscaping.
