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

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...

    Looks great
    Which primer did you use to make the paint stick to the Formica

    Just a basic primer will do. I used Kilz.

    Awesomesauce!!!! I did this recently, too, but mine are more travertine-looking. Excellent job!!! Looks awesome in your kitchen. :-p

    I saw a kit in the paint department to change countertop colors.

    In your blog someone asks if they can use a hair dryer, the answer is No, it will not disperse the bubbles but just move your epoxy around and make a mess.
