MEASUREMENTS, MATERIALS, & PREP
For reference, the countertop I was looking to cover was about 7 feet long and 2 feet wide.
And here’s what I used…
- 2 packages of Henry’s Feather Finished Underlayment Patch & Skim Coat Mix
- 1 can of Clear Matte Water-Based Interior Polyurethane
- Broad putty knife
- 4″ putty knife
- 2 mixing buckets
- Linen white chalk paint
- Soft paintbrush
- Staining pads
Once I had all my materials, I got to work cleaning and sanding my countertops!
PREP YOUR COUNTERTOPS
First things first, clean your countertops really well! Get all the grime, dust, and dirt off of them.
Then, grab some sandpaper or an electric sander and sand them down just a little bit. I just did a quick sanding on mine to create a surface in which the concrete could stick a little easier.
