Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformations Finishing Kit
By: Jodi Marks
The Countertop Transformations kit from Rust-Oleum comes with everything you need to refinish old plastic laminate countertops to give them the look of granite.
The Countertop Transformation kit contains:
- Diamond embedded sanding block
- Adhesive base coat
- Decorative chips
- Protective topcoat
To apply, start by cleaning and sanding the countertop. Next the adhesive base coat is applied and a wetting agent is used to activate the adhesive to embed the decorative chips. After another sanding to level the surface, the protective topcoat is applied and allowed to dry.
Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformations kits are available at The Home Depot.

Jodi Marks: No, this is not a flour sifter, nor is it a fertilizer broadcaster. This is the secret weapon to making your countertops look great. Right, Shea?
Shea Pettaway: That’s right, Jodi. Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformations has made a kit to create natural stone look.
Jodi Marks: See, now, if you can’t afford granite, that doesn’t mean you can’t get the look of granite with this kit. Now we’ve got everything laid out here that you need to help transform the look of your countertop. What do we have?
Shea Pettaway: Oh, we have the diamond tool sander that’s going to start the prepping on the countertop. Then you have your base coat and you spray the wetting agent.
Jodi Marks: And then once you get the surface wet, this is where this little bad boy comes in. See all these little decorative flecks in this bag? You just pour it in here and then what you do is you evenly distribute it around the surface of the countertop, because that base coat is actually an adhesive and it sticks to the countertop. Right? Then what do you do?
Shea Pettaway: And after that, then you use your protective top coat to make it durable and have a shiny finish to it.
Jodi Marks: See, now you can do this project in about a weekend. Right?
Shea Pettaway: That’s it.
Jodi Marks: And it could transform the look of your kitchen or your bathroom in no time.
