Should I paint the fake stone?

The fake stone works okay for me but the hearth tile doesn't. I would caution you on painting the fake stone. Try and track down the manufacturer and see if they have advice regarding painting their product.

I agree. I'd change the hearth and keep the stone fireplace. It looks like pretty glass pencil tile, only bigger.

I would paint it in this case.

I would remove it and the tile hearth (sledgehammer). Actually this entire fireplace looks fake. If so, remove the whole thing.

Agreed, redo the entire fireplace and use great products that don't need to be painted

If the whole thing is fake, remove it and buy one of the really nice electic fireplaces on the market today :)

Thanks for all the suggestions. It's made of concrete. Not sure if I want to get into breaking that up. Maybe a redo of the hearth will make a difference.

Ditto, the hearth is what stands out most to me as needing to be changed. I also think that putting in a new electric fireplace would be better overall.
