Updating laminate countertops
The end result is glossier and more resilient countertops.
Plus, if the countertops in your space are of different or inconsistent materials (for example, some tile, some laminate, some wood), this is a great way to create cohesion..
And the countertops were caked on with so much grease and dust we had to use oven cleaner to remove it. I’d seen “countertop makeover” kits at Home Depot, but at over 0 a pop, I wasn’t ready to take the plunge. In all fairness, this painting product from the Rustoleum crew has only sixteen color options. Not only that, but the paint would not require priming if I were painting over laminate (which I was) and would stick to just about )I found that the paint stick really came in handy on this project. ), I had read that the paint consistency would be important if the temps were going to drop lower as the paint dried (per the can’s instructions, you should only use this product when temps are between 50 and 90 degrees for three days in a row).
I think I make a pretty good case for why someone would want to paint everything just for the sake of freshening up the place rather than waiting on the true demo and remodeling to begin. Maybe we haven’t covered this before, but I’m first. I found that the color separated from the tint base quite easily (I’d only bought the paint two days before painting), so stirring it up was key.
I just like trying out new things and saving my readers the uncertainty of trying out an unknown product.

(The use of a blowtorch helps in the countertops’ resiliency.) The beauty of this DIY method is that you have the opportunity to choose any colorway you want for your kitchen countertops, including subtle flecks or striations similar to those you find in real granite..
To achieve the look of natural stone slabs (which tend to appear more solid than granite but still aren’t completely solid), you can again paint the countertops using a variety of paints, clear glitter (not kidding! The change shown here isn’t vastly different in color, but it is pretty dramatic in the look of a high-end finish.
This is a big trend lately, and the modern look works successfully in both contemporary and traditional kitchens.Some people are lucky enough to mince garlic atop custom countertops that match the style of their dreams; others may chop leafy greens on unsightly surfaces straight from the 80s (or worse).Because of its economical benefits and long-lasting capacity, laminate or Formica is a popular countertop choice; unfortunately, after some time, laminate surfaces often fall into the less-than-ideal category.days that it takes to cure, the paint will stick quite well and wear nicely over the next year or so (before we replace them with an upgraded material).I did notice that there were certain areas where the paint appeared to bubble a little, but I think that’s probably my fault for not waiting until the temps got a little higher before trying this out.
