In one of my previous centers, I wrote my artificial tile tailgate wall.In the same kitchen renovation process, I also re-made the kitchen table.I had almost no money to spend, so granite, River Rock or stainless steel was not an option at the time.
I have never been afraid to try a new project and I realize that a kitchen that looks better will add value to my house.I believe that in the view of potential buyers, any realtor can prove how high the kitchen is ranked.I decided to paint my countertop but I would also like to add some textures and colors to match my multi-colored faux tiles.
In this center I will give instructions for my countertop and list some other cheap ideas for the counter.I decided to take my counter to see "artificial river rock ".I know I want a chocolate brown as the base color and then put some other color on the base color.
My old counter is a worn white laminate.
I start with cleaning up my counter and clean them up well to remove any grease or residue.I filled a few gaps with wood putty to make it dry.Then I polished the whole table gently.Next, I put a layer of paint on the old laminated finish.
I used paint specifically for the base.
The bottom coating helps the enamel to attach better.Most home store salespeople are knowledgeable and can answer your questions about which paint to use.I painted my first brown latex enamel coating when the base coating was completely dry.
I let it dry overnight and then put the second layer on the enamel.Next is the fun part!I tore Brown, silver, purple and gold paper towels into small pieces.I randomly put these pieces on the counter with Mod Podge glue.
"Mod Podge" is a decoupling glue brand that can be bought in most craft stores and some discount stores.Then, when the glue was still wet, I sprinkled some granite powder in different places (in the artificial paint section of the home store ).In order to complete my project, after the paper towel was dry, I painted the table top with three layers of varnish.
I in November of 2009 a update the I of reception to so far they progress smooth.One of the benefits of this finish is that if they do get scratched, I can easily fix them with a couple of paper towels and Mod Podge.Another choice of painting table top is to polish the counter and paint it with oil enamel.
Oil paint is more difficult to use than latex, but it is kept well and the counter can be painted on two layers without the need for varnish.If you would like to read another hub bers experience on this, read Robert brugette's article "DIY kitchen remodel I can afford ".With this technique, his countertop looks perfect.
Plastic laminate is another option.
It is available in any home improvement shop with a lot of different colors and patterns.The store provides instructions for "Do it yourself.Another option for the home improvement store is a kit that contains the putty type material to be applied, followed by stone scraps, followed by a polyurethane finish.
The kits come in a variety of colors and cost about $300.00.Tiles are also a "hands-on" option.It will be more expensive than other options and will involve cutting tiles and grouting.However, the final result will be very durable, and the color and appearance of the tiles are endless.
My suggestion is to have fun with your countertop project!Try something different and unique.Your kitchen may make him jealous of your "granite" friend.By updating your kitchen, you will add value to your entire family.
