How to paint a faux leather countertop
I have a very old faux leather vinyl countertop that was popular back in the 1980's. At this point it looks crazy out of date plus it's gold - so popular back then. The problem is that it's a custom built countertop that goes around a corner in all one piece and has a unique angle along the edge where it turns. Therefore replacing it would be very expensive. That unique angle has cabinets underneath so it would have to be part of the design. I've been thinking about painting it but I'm not sure how to cover the texture. I've tried using Google to search for ideas, but apparently either Google doesn't know either or I'm using the wrong search terms. All I get is how to create faux leather. I'd like to paint it so that the faux leather look is gone and the counters end up looking smooth. Does anyone have any ideas other than hide it with concrete? I've included pics showing the texture and the unique corner curve (including the shadow of my phone. LOL). Does anyone have any ideas?
