I have a gray and yellow toned laminate countertop that doesn’t seem to match with anything in my kitchen. I would love a black soapstone countertop, but with my tiny budget, I had to consider other options.
I could have new laminate countertop installed, or apply new laminate sheets or paint on the current countertop. The cheapest & most doable DIY option was chosen. Paint.
I’ve known this product for a while and wanted to try it out one day to see if it is durable for all the uses in the kitchen. I applied two coats of this sticky & stinky paint using a foam roller. It says apply one coat,but in my case,one coat was too thin. I recommend using two thin, even coats if you ever use this product.
The result was OK, but not great. but with $20, It was a good try and I’m satisfied with the result. I don’t think I would use this painted countertop forever. It can be a good temporary solution if you have an ugly laminate countertop and want to change it before you could have a “real” one.
It looks great in distance, but if I see it closely, I can see some roller marks.
A tip for those of you who want a black color like me or any other dark colors : Dust will be caught on the counter tops so you need to wipe it often to keep it looking clean.
Overall, this is a great product for people who don’t have a big budget for a new kitchen.
