How can I update kitchen counters without replacing them?

Answered

I am remodeling (if you can call it that) my out dated 90's kitchen in preparation of listing the home next month. My whole budget was spent on new flooring for the whole house. I have a five gallon bucket of white paint that I am using to paint the cupboards but the counters are a cream- grey and white swirl/speckle and are chipped and cracked in several places. What can I do with next to no money and/or stuff on hand? I am a artist of sorts and have a lot of "colors" and odd things around to use but i'm at a creative standstill on this!

    You would probably get you money back in the sale if you get new laminate countertops. Kitchens sell homes and buyers will definitely look at the counters. New ones will

    impress them! Sorry. I know that’s not the answer you wanted.
