UPdate an Old Laminate Countertop!

I recently renovated a 1979 fixer-upper and instead of gutting my bathrooms, I

updated them. This one was updated with Rustoleum's Countertop

Transformations kit in Onyx and it really looks so much better.

Hopefully, it will last me a few years and then later on I'll go for all

new.

    Did you use a topcoat or sealant? Or should I say did you have to purchase one in addition to the kit?

    Hi, Lisa, sorry just saw this question, but no, you don't have to do anything else except use what comes in the kit. It's all sealed when completely dry.

    It looks great. I may try that instead of replacing my vanities.

    I've found the Giani line of countertop paints do an equally impressive job for a lot less money

    Rhoda, how has the countertop held up with use and wear? I love the Rustoleum cabinet kit but haven't tried the countertops yet. Thanks.

    Hi, Cheryl, the countertop is holding up very well. I don't think there are any chips on there at all & I'm still very happy with it.

    So glad I saw this. Looks like a good solution for my kitchen instead of completely replacing all my counters.

    Hi Rhoda. We communicated after one of my posts re: the Rustoleum CABINET Kit. I loved that and it has held up with heavy wear. I wondered how you feel the tops have held up over time. I was concerned with moisture and water rings, especially in a

    hi there the kit is expensive I found new countertops at a second hand re store for a fraction of the cost and was lucky it was the right size and shape
