Laminate to Granite with Paintby Deborah Chene on 01/25/11
In Southeast Michigan there can be no doubt that Granite is the countertop of choice. Not everyone preparing a home for sale can invest in granite. A great alternative is to paint the laminate with Giani Granite paint. It comes in kits and is great for a do it yourself project. I would recommend this for bathrooms and powder rooms. Make sure the laminate is in good shape to begin with. I first heard about the paint from Teknicolors Paints in Farmington Hills, but you can go to the Giani web site for stores in your area. http://www.gianigranite.com/index.html
Granite is the top choice, but this is a great alternative when your budget won't allow countertop replacement.
