you can easily white wash it! Mineral paints aer great for this!
Hi Debbie, hope this helps you out.
Fill a bucket with 1 gallon warm water, 1/4 cup dish soap and 1 cup oxygen bleach.
Line the floor underneath the stone fireplace with dropcloths to prevent cleaning solution from seeping into your floor.
Dip a cleaning brush into the bucket, and scrub the solution into the fireplace stone. Continue scrubbing, dipping the brush back into the solution as needed as you work your way across the fireplace.
Rinse off the brush and rinse out the bucket. Refill the bucket with clean warm water.
Drench a towel with the water and then wring the water out slightly. Wipe the towel over the whole stone fireplace to remove all of the cleaning residue, and let the stone air dry.
