I used ENVIROTEX resin on top of paint. Totally ok around food and they use it on bar tops. I painted my kitchen countertops with stone spray and made it look granite like. Then poured envirotex resin on top of it. You might want to make a frame for the sides of the countertop because the edges are tricky to get a smooth finish. But whatever you do, cover the lower cabinets with plastic because when it gets poured, it will drip down off the sides. Follow the directions on the box and you will love the result. For a few years after we did it, people thought it was granite. Good Luck! Then you use a blow torch to get all the bubbles out. Follow the envirotex directions on the box. Google tutorials. It's a great product and our countertops have held up for years now. People ask me if it was real granite. I think we used 5-6 boxes of envirotex for our countertops. Totalling around $300. hope this helps. It definitely has extended our old pink laminate countertops for another 5-6 years before we can afford real granite or quartz. Good Luck!
Stephanie, I have read a lot about doing the same thing! I will some day when the holidays are over.

I'm really partial to the countertop refinishing kits. I love that everything is included with instructions on how to complete the project! They sell them at Home Depot or on amazon.
Lots of ways and ideas.
Depending upon the look you want, you might check out Rustoleum's "Rock Solid" line of paint/epoxy finishes. It comes in limited colors, but is truly a hard non-destructible surface finish.
