How to put stone veneer tiles over an indoor painted fireplace?


We have an old fireplace with slump stone that's been painted white. We want to cover this with veneer type tiles. What's the best way to attach them? Do we completely cover the stone with something like wonder board for a smooth surface? Would it be best to sandblast the paint off and try to adhere the veneer?

Obviously looking for the most cost effective, efficient options? Open to suggestions.

Thank you.

I think it's cement shaped to look like brick, and then painted.

I'm going to move this to 'Masonry ' for you---

The brick layers are the best to ask---I know the theory,but a brick layer will understand the practice.

You will either have to remove the paint or attach hardi-backer to existing, which you can then thinset the stones to. Use a lot of screws(tapcons).
