Our home has a medium dark brown color counter tops. Is there a product that can be applied to lighten and brighten their appearance that is durable?

    Being a type of plastic, I would look at Rustoleum’s kits for “painting” plastic laminate (Formica).

    I suspect they are epoxy-based.

    With any coating system, prep work and following the directions to a T are critical.

  • Hi, Meg!

    Here is an article I found on changing the color of cultured marble countertops. It recommends epoxy-based paint, and gives a few other tips. I hope this helps!

    I agree, just know it's a temporary fix and very delicate, especially the sink area. If scratched it will peel. It should last long enough to save up for replacement.

    I used a Rustoleum kit to redo a sink recently. Click on my name and it will take you to my projects.
