Any suggestions for redoing a kitchen countertop that is easy, and economical as well ?
Hi! There are kits by Rustoleum and Gianni that include everything but the brushes and rollers recommended. I redid a kitchen sink with a Rustoleum kit for tile and bathtubs and honestly, with carefully following the steps, good ventilation (strong odor), and really good prep of the surface, it was a project anyone could do, didn't cost a lot and looked great. Good luck and stay safe!
Maybe Contact or Paint, but personally , would prefer a longer term solution such as replacing them or covering with tiles or Laminate. Best wishes
Some have used contact paper, but it may not hold up too well, also peel and stick tile are an option.
You can paint them. Go to your local home improvement store to get a kit made just for painting countertops.
Paint them and use epoxy resin on top:
Primer spray paint... then spray paint with a stone spray.... then use ENVIROTEX!!! It's like a bar top epoxy resin. It's fine for food to be on. You would mix it up, pour it on and use a blow torch to remove bubbles. You might want to make a frame for the sides of the countertop because the edges are tricky to get a smooth finish. But whatever you do, cover the lower cabinets with plastic because when it gets poured, it will drip down off the sides. Follow the directions on the box and you will love the result. For a few years after we did it, people thought it was granite. It's a great product and our countertops have held up for years now. I think we used 5-6 boxes of envirotex for our countertops. Totalling around $300. hope this helps. It definitely has extended our old pink laminate countertops for another 5-6 years before we can afford real granite or quartz. Good Luck!
