Yes… thinking about doing some much needed updates in the home.
And yes… thinking about using stone veneer to do some of it.
Went to Lowes the other day to look at product and prices… just not sure which product I want to go with??
They had M-Rock and AirStone in a box and then special order stones.
As some of you have seen…
I have real stacked stone around my fireplace.
It’s the ONLY place in the house that has it and I would like to continue to carry it through out the home.
I have a few places in mind… like the bathroom.
Our bathroom never received the proper makeover since the day we moved in… well… of course for cleaning!!
I started to prep for paint 6 years ago but it was one of those projects that I didn’t get back to.
so… 6 years later… here I am…finally thinking about a bathroom makeover again.
This is an inspiration photo I found some where in Pinterest land.
My bathroom has a similar kind of layout only smaller. I love the stone walls around the bathtub. Of course, I love everything about this bathroom but the budget can only handle so much.
Another place I would love to have stone would be our kitchen bay window.
I faux painted it about three times (click here to see) a few years ago but would love to see the veneer stone there instead.
And… if I am ever blessed to do a full kitchen makeover…
I would love to add stone around the stove like they did here…
Well… Ok… I would love to have my whole kitchen like this!
ANOTHER place for some stone accent would be on here…
this is the only pic I could find…
this island separates our dining room from the open living room.
I think stone here would really tie in with the stone on the fireplace.
AND FINALLY… the front porch…
(real front porch)
We currently have vinyl siding… let’s just say… not a fan.

Would love to be able to find some exterior stone veneer to match or tie in with our existing brick color.
Many of the newer homes in my neighborhood already have the exterior stone facade so it would definitely be an upgrade.
SIGH… not sure if I can do it all this year… THAT WOULD BE A LOT OF STONE… maybe a room/wall or two a year? Among the “needs” that have to be addressed first… (like some drainage and roofing issues…hmmm)…
I hope to be able to get started updating and making changes!
Has anyone used stone veneer for their home?
Would love some feedback on brands/cost and ease of installation.
