Tuesday’s Tips: paint your counters to look like granite for under $70

I am not sponsored by Giani Granite but saw first hand how well a painted counter can be transformed with one of their kits. My cousins are in the process of updating their kitchen. One day I went there to see the new backsplash above and thought “oh yall got granite too” then my cousin’s husband broke it down for me. Showed me the technique, how simple it was with the sponges etc and how he even created veins to make the countwr look like real granite stone. I was beyond impressed. But when he told me the price, I was floored. You mean to tell me….with a little patience & time over a weekend one can update basic laminate for under 100 bucks? No more excuses for crappy counters.

You’re welcome. ;-)
