I painted my ugly formica counters to look like faux granite!

2 days ago
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...

    WOW reading your blog and seeing your kitchen complete with the stone backsplash and that beautiful little window really made it happen. What a truly beautiful job you did.

    Just a basic primer will do. I used Kilz.
