Want New Countertops?? #Giveaway

March 20, 2013

Not too long ago I shared with you all about my Mini-Kitchen Renovation. I certainly didn’t love the way our kitchen looked when we first bought the place – and have BIG dreams to update it some day… but meanwhile I get to figure out how to make what I have look the best!

One of my least favorite parts of the kitchen (besides the floors and cabinets that are falling apart) was the countertops.  I *hated* that they were so light, and they picked up stain and showed every speck of dirt/food on them.

Giani Granite Before

But I knew I couldn’t afford brand new countertops – and I certainly didn’t want to go through the trouble of replacing them with something else considering that eventually I plan on tearing the whole kitchen out and starting over!

So I painted them.

Yep! Painted my countertops!

Giani Granite After

Not with just any old paint – but with Giani Granite Paint.  You can see the whole process in this post here, labeled, ‘I painted my Countertops!’.

Giani Granite After 2

They’ve held up great!  There was one place that has chipped slightly because we dropped something really heavy from the cupboard onto the countertop – but it actually dented the counter, too… Otherwise, no chipping or flaking at all.  I hardly even remember that my countertops where light before – they just look so normal to me!

Do you have a place in your house that has terrible counter tops that you would love to switch out for Granite, but don’t have the money for it?
