    First you need to explain what you did

      The counters were painted prior to my purchasing the house so I do not know what type of paint was used, I've done nothing yet. It could be oil-based as it is kinda sticky when things are put on it.

    If they are flat maybe they could be covered with ceramic or stone tiles and grouted. The sink would have to be pulled and reset. Somewhat inexpensive idea.

    I can absolutely recommend Gianni Granite paint kits. They transformed my ancient countertops with beautiful results.

    I have this exact problem and I am in the midst of repairing now. I first bought some Citristrip. (can be found at most hardware stores) I love this product. It strips all the paint off with a nice citrus smell no harsh chemical smell and it worked. I have also bought the Giani Countertop kit. It should arrive today. I have used this in the past with our old house and it worked GREAT! Good luck with your project.
