We’ve ALMOST finished the master bathroom redo….searching for the perfect lamp and a few more finishing touches. Yay! We shared about some of the other parts of this redo here, here, here, here, and here.
I thought I would share what we did with the countertops. When we moved into Oak Cottage they were a horrible, dark shade of green formica. We painted them to look like a cream/golden marble. They have lasted for 17 years! But, as you can see below, there were some areas that had suffered a horrible fate. I have a feeling it was about the time that our daughters became old enough to paint their own nails and hadn’t quite become proficient with polish remover. Polish remover=death for ANY kind of paint.
This summer we re-did the master bath and decided that we wanted concrete counters. Instead of pouring them…we opted to paint the current ones to look like cement/concrete.
What do you think? We love them! It took me less than 1/2 a day.
You can read about the tutorial of how to go about painting countertops here.
Do you have any counters in your home that you would like to change?
