Painting Countertops

5 days ago
I wanted to cover my dated ugly green counter tops, I first used Rustoleum counter top paint. Highly dissatisfied with the results, I could never recommend the product. It was thick, hard to roll, bubbled and there was no way you could go over or touch up an area. Plus the paint is toxic smelling! Absolutely horrid! I ended up redoing the tops with home made chalk paint and clear sealer. Blog shows more details and you will find the first link as well as the redo on the right side bar in top 10 posts.

  • I first used Rustoleum counter paint, the results were disastrous, with chipping, bubbles and over all poor finish
  • bubbles that occurred with Rustoleum countertop paint
  • many flaws appeared and any retouch or area where you went back over the paint, even while wet made a terrible finish.
  • oh! that green had to go!
