    You need countertop paint. Spray paint and latex will not last a week in a wet environment

    I bought "Rust-oleum Countertop coating" for my laminate counter.

    It is tintable to 12 colors (Home Depot for $20 a quart) then bought a lighter color. You paint it 1 color, and then dab on the lighter color with a sea sponge to resemble a granite look. As for the sink, you can take it out and spray paint it. Just get the correct paint, some kind of enamel I would guess. Good luck!:-)

    I am surprised that people spend so much on painting a countertop. For the amount needed it is cheaper to replace with new laminate if saving money is the goal here.

    I would get three different colors and sponge them on at different angles and textures kind of like a marble effect

    Although painting countertops is getting lots of talk these days, it is meant to be only a temporary decor improvement. Even if the preparation and application are completed correctly, the finish can no where near compete with the durability of new laminate. Also, as the materials that the sink and the countertop are made from are different, no paint is going to adhere the same way to both. To save money in the longer run, put it towards new rather than quick fixes.
