II am planning on doing countertops in a beach house and have tried a few samples
on a piece of laminate I had. I need help with how much I should sand to make it
smooth or if 2-3 coats of polyacrylic semi gloss will do the trick.

  • If you are going to use poly look for food grade (Lowes has one that is food grade). Lightly sanding until smooth- you may have some roughness but I do not know how smooth you can sand that spray paint. I would definitely experiment. But spraying a large area with the spray paint-shake frequently! Otherwise you could have globs of paint and very different outcome of color (not that variation is bad). Good luck

    I have used Rustoleum's stone paint and love it. I am doing it on a floor right now.. i will post pics when it's done. I found a lot of people using it for their counter tops too, just Google rustoleum stone pain counter tops.

    Did you try it yet? Please let me know how it comes out. I love the idea!! We did something of a similar nature in our bathroom and used (I think) EnviroTek resin. It came out really nice!

      @Kris Kowalski Thanks for your feedback. See below. I will do some research on Enviro Tek resin.

    I too was wanting to spray the Rustoleum Stone on/over my ceramic floor, old one inch tiles. But then I am now thinking why waste the money when I plan to put a poly over it anyway. What do you you all think of just using cheaper spray or just brush on paint?

    used the stone spray on my counters (after having used a "counter" paint that I really didn't like....) then used tinted marine-grade varnish. I think I should have done a few more coats of varnish though.. anyway, the finish is rough-feeling but that's what I was going for and I love how the counters look!
