Recently purchased an older home with stucco that failed inspection so YAY new siding. problem: its a split level and one whole theme looks blah. we have an old stone on the bottom but its not my cup of tea. old rusty browns and almost light oranges. we are looking to limestone wash it. has anyone done this? and of course i want to be even more difficult. I want to selective paint/stain/wash the stones so they just have a different color schemed of whites and grays.

I used photoshop to develop the themes we want. We just cant afford to rip out and put in a whole new stone.

My dream:

What we can afford + DIY or masonry hire of this stone.

(also thinking of doing a COMPLETE lime wash of the brand new brick walk way)
