I've seen gorgeous epoxy paint/resins and finish as a great update.Sadly, I have rounded edges, not right angles/squares edges. I think I can do it, but will it look stupid?Has anyone tried this?

    Hi Laura, here's a few ideas for you, hope it helps with the rounded edges, the second one works on rounded edges

    If you break the surface tension first by using a roller and applying product to the edges then when you push the excess product over it the edges will get even coverage. The key seems to be to take your counter tops off and do this is a place where the excess can drip on a cover area.

    What’s stupid about rounded epoxy edges? Anybody who works or likes design will probably ask you about them and comment. I would point them out to friends as one of my creations, to make sure they see them. When I get negative feedback, it almost always leads to a suggestion or a conversation that helps me learn. IMHO, I’d rather learn something than get a compliment. Give your epoxy idea a go, and take pics, and do a great post on Hometalk! Jewell

    Stupid only in the sense that squared edges are easier to update. A granite refinish would be believable, but not with a rounded edge.


    That said, I've done full-house design by era for clients for a while. For some reason, I have a harder time creating a vision with my own space in my small 1956 house. I plan to keep mixing MCM with "one day I may sell this place" and my collection of odds and ends from many eras.


    I appreciate the vote of confidence! Thanks, Jewell!

    Oh you absolutely can!! The trick is to using a brush on the edges so that when the epoxy drips down you wipe the epoxy on the edges for a smooth finish! That way when it cures do you not have "drips" you have a smooth finish!

    Actually my real granite counters have bull noses, so it is not an unrealistic thing to see. The bigger challenge is controlling the gravity when the wet product wants to keep moving around the bullnose.
