Paint, Don’t Replace Those Old Countertops
Does your countertop look dated but you don’t want to spend time and money replacing it? Try painting it with Rust-Oleum Stone Creations! “This worked wonderfully to cover up those outdated countertops in a 1970s kitchen in a house we recently purchased,” writes one fan on Amazon. “It was also incredibly easy to use. I did not add any primer to the counters, I did not sand my counters. I just cleaned it with regular dish soap and water. I let it dry for 30 minutes and then I sprayed 2 layers of this stuff. After the first layer, I waited 6 hours to spray again. That was it.”
