Before, boring tan laminate.Notice we had wood along the edges of the countertops.
With the cost of the kit, brushes, and a few other things, it cost about $278.00. Not too bad!
First, you sand...
just to be sure, sand a little more (it's actually very light sanding - you just need to make sure there's scratches all over the top)...
Next, paint on the black basecoat then quickly spread on the chips using a little hand machine exactly like you use to spread fertilizer on your lawn. See those chips all over the floor!
Then you let it sit overnight (that was the hardest part - waiting!), vacuum off the excess chips, and use a little plastic scraper to knock down any high chips and remove any loose ones. A light sanding and another vacuum then you put on the protective top coat.
It was much easier to do than I thought it would be, yet it was also much messier than it thought it would be too. But, I definitely think it was well worth the little effort and huge mess! Don't you think it looks better with the edges done too - make it really look like granite!
I love it! I think we'll do all the bathrooms too! Anyone else going to try it?
