    adios to the pink-gctid824964




    I can't believe I put up with it this long. Used Rust Oleum countertop paint custom tinted . Cost - $18 and a couple high density rollers.

      I like your new colour.

      Been considering our options to achieve a similar change. Looked at everything from Corian and various stone products to an overlay of new laminate.

      Haven't seen this paint product before. Can you tell us a little more about preparation, application and your results?

        Mine has the fake marble look. Now I know what kind of paint to cover it with. It is on the table too.

          Sure, prep was easy. I ran 220 grit over everything with a 5 inch orbital sander, a sanding sponge in the corners. Cleaned with paint thinner. The first pass I made a rookie error and didn't clean the rollers. I ended up with non skid countertops. The Admiral commented that it might be a good idea. I let it dry, sanded it again and used high density foam rollers and foam brushes for the corners. Results as you see. They recommend no primer. I bought all that at home depot.

          I guess I should add that I used the Rust Oleum deck paint on my swim platform recently, but alas didn't take pictures. My platform was very tired looking. Used the primer and the oyster white and could not believe the outcome. I did try the non skid additive and that was another blunder, it came out like sand paper. So, sanded it off and recoated. Entire project was like 50 bucks. I'll try to take a picture next time.

          By the way, these products are powerful and require adequate ventilation. When I did the countertops we abandoned the boat and left a fan running for a few days.

            Go to either Lowes or Homedepot and type in counter top paint. You can get the Rust-Oleum plain paint for $20.00 or you can get paint that looks like marble for $80 to over $200.

            I'm thinking of getting the $80 stuff.

              You will not be disappointed with this product. Considering the price it seems like a secret. Just be patient and do the prep, I guess that's true of everything

                Nice! I am replacing my galley countertop but I will use this technique for the rest of the boat.
