It’s funny to me this is how I found your blog. My husband has a painting/drywall business and he had a customer who wanted her countertops painted. House manager/secretary/bookkeeper/IT wife (me) Googled and your blog was in my search. He ended up using the Gianni line to paint the countertops, and they turned out awesome. I have the same tacky faux wood countertops you had. Hubby will be painting any day now (or when he completes that next job, dog doesn’t need walked, he decided to whip up veggie soup, televised sports ceases,etc.). Oh well, he’s a keeper for the soup and a few other reason. Thank you for you blog, I have enjoyed every minute reading it that I should have been doing really productive things.

It’s a common scenario: This kitchen had perfectly serviceable laminate countertops, but the owner wanted a more luxurious look. Instead of springing for thousands of dollars’ worth of new granite, she opted to try granite-look countertop paint from Giani, which is sold in a kit that covers 35 square feet of surface area for about $70. The paint is designed to cover laminate, solid-surface, ceramic tile, wood or cultured-marble countertops.

An easy and fun project for do-it-yourselfers, painting kitchen countertops is a cost-effective way to make a statement in the kitchen. It’s possible, for instance, to mimic the look of granite by painting your countertops with a faux granite finish, or even the look of stainless steel with a shiny, satin-finish paint in a gray-blue metallic palette.

Let’s face it: Laminate isn’t the most high-end countertop material out there, and when it starts showing signs of wear it can really make your kitchen look shabby. But if new countertops aren’t in your budget right now, show your current ones some love with a paint job to extend their life for a few more years. There are several kits on the market—including those that replicate stone or granite—or you can simply use acrylic interior paint in the color(s) of your choice. The two keys to professional, lasting results are careful preparation and proper sealing. Here’s a plan for your counter attack!

Flat latex paint is available in a variety of colors, ranging from forest green to slate gray. This versatility means painted kitchen countertops will work in a number of different kitchen styles, including modern, rustic and eco-friendly designs. Different color combinations are also possible; consider painting a white countertop to go with a red kitchen.

So funny, we just did this to our countertops…but differently. We used a countertop paint product and did not seal. I love the shiny look of your countertops!! But, fire??? Scary. lol Here’s a link to our blog so you can see what we did:

Loved your post, we have a rental and the counters were faded and very old so I decided to try your idea. The guy at the store did tell me that this paint was hard to work with and hard to clean so he advised that I also buy some low oder mineral spirits, thank God I listened. I Initially used sponge brushes, BIG mistake, my brush started comming apart after about the 5th or 6th stroke which left pieces of sponge stuck on the counter which I had to unceremoniously pick out. A little wiser I purchased the roller that’s in your pic, this worked much better only now I had to put it in a trey so the roller could fit. Well I’m cheep like you so I used an old take out plastic container, BIG mistake, the paint ate through the plastic and now I have paint that you can’t clean with soap and water running down the drain (this is where I set the paint while I worked). So if any one trys this learn from my mistakes. Also before you use the roller wash it, I did’nt so some of the loose yarn came off initially and stuck to the wall. End result….the counter looks much better and I’m much wiser. I didn’t think to take a before pic, but I’ll try to attach an after
