countertop paint


Has anyone used this product?

I'm curious if it looks any good and how difficult it was to prep and apply. I can't imagine painting a countertop and it looking any good, but I've been wrong before

I have yet to find any countertop paint that works for longer than about a year.
Save yourself the headache and replace the top now.

There are a few things you can do. Finnaren and Haley make a polyurethane paint that we've had on our countertops for years. Insl-x makes something similar. Also, you can use venetian plaster. It's a little bit trickier, but you'll actually end up with stone countertops which can then be sealed.

This product is a Alkyd product, which is brittle. A counter top takes a beating. Beating + Brittle= Bummer. As it has been posted, replace or use a polyurethane.

For the headache of maintaining your newly painted counter top and the time you took to prep the counter for paint and masked off all other areas its just not worth it. Replace the counter and have another 10 – 20 years of enjoyment…

Note: just so you know about some don’ts on painted counters:

1) Don’t cut into it because you will chip the paint.
2) Don’t put hot pans on it or else you will melt the finish and have paint stick to your pan, wife wont like that one bit.
3) You have to clean up spills before they dry.
4) Don’t let water accumulate on the counter for long periods of time.
