Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformation Kit – Faux Granite

rustoleum countertop transformations
If you're a do-it-yourselfer and need a kitchen update…Rust-Oleum has a new product designed to turn your laminate countertops into faux granite in 1 weekend! Rust-Oleum's Countertop Transformation kit covers 30 square feet for a little less than $200, and everything you need is in the box other than the brushes and rollers.

The four step countertop transformation process:

  1. Sand the laminate or formica countertop and wipe clean.
  2. Apply the base coat with a roller.
  3. Choose from 5 faux-granite colors and spread the color chips with the dispenser…it's kind of like sifting flour!
  4. Sand and smooth the dried chips.
  5. Roll on the glossy top coat. After the top coat is applied, the counters must dry 48 hours before light use and 7 days before normal use.

It almost sounds too good to be true, so I read a few reviews and put together a synopsis of the comments:

  • It's a 2 person job.
  • Messy!!!!
  • Base coat dries very quickly so work in sections.
  • The kit seems to cover a little less area than it claims, so figure on the 30 square foot kit covering about 25 square feet.
  • The dessert sand color appears to be the most popular and best looking. The onyx color had lots of complaints.
  • The top coat puts out a lot of fumes, so be careful with kids and pets.
  • Great way to update a kitchen without spending a fortune.

Overall, this product gets positive reviews, and with Rust-Oleum's 100% money back guarantee it's certainly worth a try!
