Updating a rock fireplace

Use an old paint brush because it will ruin a good one.Everything is water-based so it’s pretty easy for clean-up.The pillows on the leather chairs are also from Pottery Barn and are a soft washed velvet.We found the mirror at a restaurant in Lewisburg, PA where our daughter attends Bucknell.Choose a primer designed for masonry (like this one) so you know it will adhere to the stone, and let your primer fully dry before painting.

Put a couple of coats of primer and then a coat (or two) of the Aura paint.Make sure to protect your floors and nearby walls when you paint—there’s a lot of potential for dripping!There’s usually a standard of finish when you are painting a surface.If you have flat to medium texture in your brick or stone (like my fireplace above), you can use a roller that is designed for masonry.It’s probably the fluffiest roller you’ve ever seen, but it’s designed that way to hold a lot of paint (stone soaks up paint) and get into all the crevices.
