Cultured marble vanity "refinishing".


I was thinking on replacing the vanity on a small bathroom but I came across a few products that, in a sense, cover the surface and make it look kinda like granite. At this point, anything would look miles better than the original vanity, from 1996.

Has anyone tried something similar? I found this on fleabay

Giani Granite countertop paint small project kit.

Several colors to chose from, not expensive and if it looks remotely like the pictures, I would be happy.

What the mob says?

Instead of covering it, what about buffing it. A small buffing machine & the correct product should do the trick.

^^^^ Or simply replace it and donate the used vanity top to a Habitat for Humanity or Reclaimed Building Materials type organization. Replacing a small vanity top is an easy proposition. I foresee the paint scratching and peeling within the first month of use - if it lasts that long.

I agree, the odds are any coating applied to a non porous countertop will fail if the counter sees any use.
