coloring flagstone

Is it possible to successfully stain or color flagstone?

Ours is a light pink and we'd like to change the color to grey.
we're prepared to restain/paint every few years so the fact that it might fade over time isn't a concern. We just want to know if the stone would accept color in the first place.
our area is a sheltered front porch facing east, so it gets only the early morning sun.
many thanks

Maybe a paint shop

Dear Jeani,

We have never done that. You should go to a paint shop and they should be able to tell you what preparation you will need to make the grey paint stick to your flagstone.

Great luck!
