Here is the before that I was working with. Everything was still in great condition, just in need of a little updating.
STEP 1: TAPE OFF YOUR AREA
I chose to use the spray form of the product since the area was so small and the spray is a fourth of the cost of the paint. But beware, the overspray and smell is INTENSE. You will want to make sure you have thoroughly taped off and covered any areas that you don’t want overspray on, including your walls, vanity cabinet and faucet hardware.
STEP 2: VENTILATION
Spray paint fumes are intense. Make sure you open any windows, use a fan, and wear a respirator or mask.
STEP 3: CLEAN THE SURFACE
I used a pre-paint cleaner that I had on hand from a previous project, and made sure to dry and wipe with a lint-free cloth before spraying to remove any dust. I did not sand the surface, but you might benefit from using a fine grit sandpaper to rough it up a little.
STEP 3: PREP YOUR CAN
Be sure to shake the can for a full minute or more to properly mix.
STEP 4: SPRAY YOUR COUNTER
In a sweeping motion with overlap on each pass, spray a thin coat of paint on your surfaces. You will need multiple coats ( I used 4). I sprayed a coat, waited 2-3 minutes and sprayed again. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!! You MUST complete all of your coats within a 30 minute timeframe. Not hard to do if you use the above process, but make sure you tackle this project at a time that you won’t get pulled away or distracted. If you spray additional coats on the surface after 30 minutes the paint will bubble. If you need to apply additional coats or touch ups after 30 minutes you must wait a full week to recoat.
