painting countertops to look like granite

SadieSadieSeptember 6, 2003

I'm redecorating on a budget and want to TRY to save our current kitchen countertop, by painting a faux granite design and then sealing it. My husband has his own contracting business and brought home some old countertops so I can practice first. I haven't seen this topic anywhere on the net. Does anyone know how to do this or a web page that could help me? THANKS! SadieSadie

Look in the section The House and one of the forums listed there is Home Decorating. I bet they could help you and it's more up to date then this one. Hope this helps you!

If you didn't find anything yet....

I researched this awhile back as I was thinking of doing the same thing. Please see the link below for ideas.

Over the years, I've seen people on some of the forums here ask that question, which is what got me interested.

Here is a link that might be useful: Painting counter tops
