If you’re tired of looking at that old countertop but installing new ones isn’t in the budget, there might be an easier answer. Believe it or not, you can paint that tired old laminate with a brand new color of your choice.
Countertop paints or special coating are designed specifically for giving laminate countertops, cabinets, and furniture a new look. Some don’t even require a primer, though the surface does have to be completely clean and dry before you apply the new finish.
You can choose from a variety of colors, and the cured coatings are moisture and chemical resistant. Look for a product that also inhibits the growth of mold and mildew, which often leave stubborn stains, that will insure that your new countertop keeps looking good longer. So spice up your kitchen for the holidays without breaking the bank.
