I recently removed wallpaper in my kitchen and painted the walls and really loved the new look. But I was stuck with these ugly hunter green formica countertops with wood trim! UGH. So I decided to try to paint them and they turned out SO great I was shocked. It totally transformed my kitchen for about $100. The tutorial is here...


  • This was the countertops BEFORE.... yup hunter green formica with fancy wood trim. LOL
  • And here is the AFTER! I did a lot of research with regards to technique and such. And being a cancer survivor, I wanted to make sure all the products I used were non-toxic and safe. I was blown away by the results!

    WOW!!! What an amazing transformation! I am excited to try something on my counters, so much more cost effective. There is nothing wrong with the counters except they do not project the look I want. Really great results, thank you for sharing.

    My daughter, husband and I redid my country blue Formica counter tops this summer. I have put up with them for 21 years. They would all be custom to replace. Everything else gets done as a necessity and this never was a priority UNTIL I saw what you did,
