Most of my adult life I've had a yellow or cream kitchen...I cook better in a yellow or cream kitchen. The food looks better in a yellow or cream kitchen and it even tastes better in a yellow or cream kitchen... Only twice in 60+ years have I varied. Once I painted my kitchen pink which did not last long... It was pepto bismal pink and horrid..
So I was thinking when we were on the cruise that I would try to paint the counter tops and found this product on Amazon.
I thought I would try it and if I didn't like it I would paint sunflowers all over the counter instead. But I was definitely not looking at those minty green counters one more summer.
Well it turned out so much better than I even dreamed it could. The lighting in this picture does not do it justice. There were 3 steps. The first step was the primer which had to dry 8 hours, then the sponging of three colors which had to dry 4 hours and then the top coat and let it dry 8 hours. It will take a couple weeks to really "cure." So in a couple days my kitchen looks brand new.
It is really this color. Granted it is not real granite! ...and not as durable but it is breathtaking. I always use vinegar on my kitchen counters and they advise vinegar or other harsh cleaners not to be used on this surface. I can do that! And if I do accidentally damage a spot I will paint a sunflower on it.
Remember the soutache jewelry from the other day... Well I have a huge hug and thank you for Jocelyne Ausseil who found this fantastic tuto...
