    Is the stone dark from use? If so, you can clean the rock with a mixture of water and TSP which will remove any soot and/or dirt. Here's a picture of my fireplace which I cleaned using the above method when I inadvertently had the fire going and forgot to open the flue.

    Hello Beck; You can use Paint on rocks. However, that is a huge job!!
    Maybe all you need to do is to replace the mantel, and that would make the area look much more appealing to you???
    What color is the current Fireplace, Please???

  • yessss. Paint it white!!!!
