Making your Formica counter tops into trendy counter tops for 200.00 is a dream come true!
Before
Preparation is key! Scrub counters, sand them clean & smooth. Use tac cloth to get all the fine dirt removed.
Rustoleum Spray Paint & Flexible sandpaper
You can use acrylic paint, you can use the sponge paint to make a faux granite look but for me & my house I wanted black high gloss and I have a hubby who has a talent with laying down spray paint so we used 4 cans & plenty of ventilation!
The paper on the wall was for over spray
If you are NOT using spray paint just cover the bottom cupboards and lay paper on floor to catch the self leveling glaze.
After spray paint dried for an hour hubby used high end paint brush to drag the glaze heavily over all the surface and back.
Lowes: Glaze Coat 68.98 or if you go to Home Depot they have EnviroTex Lite pour on high gloss finish. Ask for it about the same price. Its not just wood varnish its an epoxy like glaze that self levels itself but will drip down the cabinets. You can buy "kits" or you can go this way & be real DIY! You can watch youtube videos to gain confidence . I just wanted to show you this amazing transformation!
Ta Da!

    I am getting ready to tackle my kitchen and can't afford to replace the countertops. I was thinking about something like this as well. I was wondering how are they holding up to normal wear and tear?

    I would love countertops in black high gloss and have been trying to paint mine for a month! When painting with a foam roller, I had roller lines no matter how I applied it. Then I tried spray painting and it turned out blotchy. I am at my wits end with this project! Any helpful hints? Was the black spray paint you used flat or gloss?

      Oh I need to add, make certain to follow all the prep instructions to the letter! And if there is silicone on the counter be sure to get it all off! It wont stick to it. Good luck with your project!
