Customer Questions & Answers

Previous Counter Color

I want to purchase the Sicilian Sand for the counter tops, but my counter tops are now black. Will the sand color still show up on black counter tops or will it come out to dark?
Asked by: Cheree
Hello there! The color of your current counter tops won't make any difference in regards to the end result. This is because the first step of Giani is to roll on our IronCore primer-which is black. After your primer has dried, you will sponge on your Mineral paints to your liking. You can adjust them to your preference-whether that be lighter or darker-during this sponging process. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Can I combine two different color kits to achieve the color I want?

The white kit is too light and the black too dark. Can I combine two different color kits to achieve the look that I want?
Asked by: StephanieG
Absolutely! Our paints are very customizable so feel free to combine the mineral colors that you are looking for. The instructions would remain the same, simply add the other colors that you would like on your countertop.

Is it necessary to pull the sink and stove out before applying? How do I do the edges so it doesn't make a mess on floor

Asked by: chris
Hello Chris, thanks for your interest in our products! It is not required that you remove your sink and/or stove, but many customers find that removing them makes the process easier. As far as applying to your edges, this should not be too much of a problem, but you'll want to take your time in these areas and watch for drips. Some customers use drop cloths to protect their floors. Please let us know if we can help with anything else. Thanks again, and have a great day!

I am very impressed with how revitalized the counter tops now appear with such a simple process! I typically forego artsy type finishes simply because I don't like to do them but this was totally different. Apply a base coat, then do three sponge applications, add a finish and that's it.

The instructions were very insightful and if I needed additional help, their website was very helpful. They include more than enough product to complete 2 large vanities. This is one of the first projects I attempted after acquiring our home. It's been down about 2 months and been through a lot of renovation construction. Holding up so far. I used it on 1980's Formica vanities counters.

The instructions and how to video made it a relatively simple process, and the final result is amazing. I was pleasantly surprised by how much it actually looks like granite. It is a great, cost-effective way to instantly improve the look of your counters.

All reviews are submitted after application - would like to see if they are still happy after 2 years! We were happy with the application and looked great - for about 6 months. Used this in our kitchen and had problems from day one. Giani sent us another kit and we totally re-did the application. We followed the instructions to the tee but this product doesn't like water and soon it was peeling around the sink. Kitchen counters have water on them - a lot, and this product doesn't handle water at all. Now I need to sand it all off and go with a different product - waste of time.

Hardest part is waiting between coats.. I put 3 top coats. I had plenty of product. I needed a little over 35 square feet. Finished today so don't know how it will hold up but looks and feels great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for an everyday used kitchen or even bathroom I wanted to wait a sufficient amount of time before doing a review so I waited 1 year. This product is very easy to apply but does NOT hold up. If you have a kitchen or bathroom that you use daily and really cook in this will not hold up. It's good for a temporary fix until you can get new countertops. I have had to reapply at least 3 top coats and they all still don't hold up. We are finally getting new counters. I would post pictures but the review section doesn't let me.

The only problem I had was with the final top coat. I call Giani and they helped me resolve the issue. The Top coat was going on and drying out to fast leaving roller marks. They told me to add one to two teaspoons of water to a full can of top coat. I did this and made sure my roller was saturated but not dripping and rolled on as per their instructions that came with the kit and they are beautiful.

We were so scared when the first step was to paint the counter tops black!! It looks so good! So many compliments-and really not hard to do! The instructions were great! You don't think you have enough product-but you do! Love my new counter tops!
