I tapped off the counter top with painters tape. and gave it a go. I cleaned it really well with vinegar and water and began my journey.

Then I primed it and used a couple different colors of arcylic paints the cheap ones you find at the dollar store or craft store. I used a sponge to randomly press the colors on one at a time.
