I had no problems applying the coating. I read everything carefully first (after reading the reviews). I thought it would be super thick the way some were saying it dried so fast. Although fast drying, it does not dry immediately. I cleaned the countertops with TSP first. The number one advice I would give is to take your time. Do not be in a rush. Apply coating in the same direction. I applied the trim with a small, good, brush first. Then, I rolled on the coating in small sections at a time. If you go slow, take your time, you should have no problems. If you are looking for new countertops with not one streak mark, you need to purchase new countertops. This was a vast improvement for our countertops which were dated and worn. We were putting our house up for sale and could not afford new countertops. We have had them coated for 4 weeks now and no chipping, bubbling, etc. We are careful with them as I do not believe they are designed to stand up the same as our old laminate countertops. You do need good ventilation with windows open and fans going when applying and afterwards for a few hours so apply on a nice day. It took two coats and I waited over an hour to apply the second coat.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nsm Complete waste of money
I wish I could go back and not buy this. First, the scent is so strong that even with my windows open, a fan in one window to pull air out, AND paint masks we still had to leave the house for several hours after painting. Second, you look at the paint wrong and it will chip. After weeks of having time to harden it still chips if you so much as sit a plate down on it hard. Also, after washing some dishes and setting them on a towel to dry, the moisture made the paint bubble up. I tried lightly patting/ rubbing at the paint to get it to flatten out and guess what? Yup. It chipped off. Complete waste of money. I wish I could give this negative stars.

We tried this product to squeeze a few more seasons out of the counter tops at our summer place. They were an awful blue, but otherwise in decent condition. We sanded, cleaned with TSP and followed the directions to the letter. Do NOT attempt to reapply with an hour or even 24 as the label states!!! First tried to touch up thin areas within the hour time frame but the paint just lifted off. So we waited until the next day to apply the touch ups. Left it to cure for 2 weeks (weekend place) and upon returning we could see EVERY touch up and roller stroke. It stains with water, chips off easily and even had a ring left from a warm plate of pancakes! Do NOT waste your time or money!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LuLu Great product.... Super easy for a new DIY'er and very resilient!
I was getting ready to have new flooring, a new backsplash and some other items installed in my kitchen. I thought I would just use this product as a quick fix to last me maybe a year or so and then invest in a new countertop (For $20, I figured, at the time, that they would only stay good for about that long). Boy, was I wrong.
I didn't use any TSP or anything on the counters just gave them a really good washing and drying. And rolled it on with a small paint roller as suggested. I had a small area (you can see in the picture) where a piece of the counter had been chipped out. I patched that and painted over it and you can't even tell where that spot ever was.
Nearly 4 years now and they still look great. Sometimes, if I've leave a wet dish on the counter, the area leaves a mark but, if I wipe it down and let it dry again, it is gone. I would absolutely use again.

I was excited to try this product but am very dissatisfied with the end result. I let the counters dry for a whole week before putting anything on them. I noticed a ring left behind after setting a glass down & leaving it for a bit and when I used my crockpot & toaster oven, the heat from them melted the paint underneath! Not ideal for anyone who can't wait more than 3 weeks for the paint to harden or set.

Wow. I cannot be more disappointed with a product. My husband and I tried this on our bathroom countertops and now we need to buy new countertops! So much for saving money - with this product you'll end up spending more.
The paint dries so fast so you don't even have time to smooth it out or paint it on consistently. Then, when it DOES try it dries lumpy, streaky, smudgy and looks like trash.
Another reminder that when you try to save a buck or cut corners you will ALWAYS have regret.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan Looked nice until you try to use it.
I was looking to freshen up our laminate countertops with a new surface and color. I did multiple applications and let it dry for over 7 days. At that point I had left a 5 pound container sit on the countertop over night and when I moved it there was marking molded into the countertop. It looks like I didn't let it set at all but it had been completely free to dry for over a week.
Now I have to completely refinish the countertops AGAIN! A complete waste of time, money and work. I do not recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by heather It did transform, but did not cover
Our kitchen was a hideous green. But we decided to join the fit crowd instead of buying a new countertop. The product looks great at a distance, but every flaw appears in the paint from the previous laminate. So this is just the beginning for our kitchen.
