I just got thru painting my countertop and back ground Black. It looks pretty good, I will have to do another coat in 24hours and then let it set for 3 days. I did not have a very big space to do. I sanded the countertop and back ground lightly with a small sander and then wipe it down with mild soap and water. I covered my sink with plastic. I did discovered do not go over the paint until it is good and dry. I used a sponge roller. It worked pretty well. I did not try to clean it, I am going to buy another one for the second coat. After 24 hours I then will let it set for 3 days. Happy eating out.
