Question

I want to hang a picture on the fireplace (it is not a usable one), but don't know how to attach it to the stone. It is very uneven and is also painted. Any help would be appreciated...

The method depends on the weight and size of the frame. Small or light weight: scape the paint then embed a stick on type of picture hanger in mirror mastic. Both items (hanger and mirror mastic) are available at most hardware stores. (Allow the mastic to cure). Heavy or large: drill the stone or mortar with a carbide masonry bit, then insert a plastic anchor and screw. Again: these are hardware store items.
