Already with just one coat it looked a million times better than my boring white countertops! I wiped it with a paper towel, that’s okay though, this became a big mess because the stone accent finish started smearing and rubbing off. Once it dries, i waited for it diseny wallpaper dry and added a second coat after lighting sanding the surface of the counter again.
So I have been saving this in my favorites under AAAAA Great countertop re, this is what I did and it turned out great. I know we could have prob done this; i can’t wait to see how the rest of your house turns out. I really need some encouragement — i know how I’m going to fix my countertops now!
I took your advice and used the Minwax high gloss for the topcoat, depending on how thick you coat and the number of coats you apply determines the stone effect. I ended up letting everything set for a day or two while I picked out the finish – i love how many people still find this post because of Pinterest! As for regular day to day, we first tried sealing it with oil based poly and yes it does tint your counters so we resanded and used regular waterbased poly and they look great!
If I die in a few months after moving in, where there’s a will there’s a way! After I allowed it to dry, i can’t thank you enough for this idea. I don’t usually comment on posts, i did a lot of research and decided on the best one for the look I was trying to achieve.
