Re: Rust-Oleum's Countertop Coating.I'm a little confused about where you find the color selection to mix in with the coating. Is it sold separately?

Will this product cover burns and scratches in a laminate counter?

Asked by: Anonymous
It did mine. If the scratches are light, just lightly sand with FINE GRIT sandpaper ( no pressure on sandpaper) If it's actually a gouge, try the Roberts Laminate Repair kit also sold at HD. Fill in sand, Fill again, sand again, as many times as you need to, use a sanding block.

What kind of primer is recommended for this product?

Asked by: Anonymous
No primer is needed nor would it serve any purpose. Apply two coats of the product.

1 qt. Countertop Tintbase Kit is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 70.

Just bought a fixer-upper and didn't want to rip out the kitchen right now, so I used this coating to cover up 1978 butcher block laminate. Looks brand new! I cleaned the counter with a degreaser and rinsed, filled in a few holes with Spackle and sanded, then I used a towel soaked with rubbing alcohol to finish the prep. I painted on the coating with a good foam roller and brush for small areas. Yes it smells. So what? It stops smelling when dry. Just open a window and run a fan. My family has already tried to do things on this counter your should never do on any laminate counter and it has held up. It is not indestructible, but every time I look at this kitchen now, I am much happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from follow instructions I would bet most of these negative reviews are due to improper use of product and tools.. Use a good roller, and make sure it's actually full of paint. Lay down a coat and LEAVE IT ALONE..don't go brushing it back and forth like you are white washing an old fence...once it's done, don't use the counter for several days...make sure it's mixed very well and DO NOT recoat before previous coat is completely dry... it's not intended to be a lifelong's a 20 dollar can of paint ...good for utility areas, rental properties, or to gussie up your place as you save for replacement tops....used as directed to does just fine for 20 dollars

We have apartment units and one kitchen counter was looking a little shabby. The cabinet itself is fine, solid wood, and the finish is in great condition but between my son who would rather replace a small kitchen counter with a new sink and counter (much costlier and really unnecessary) vs the lazy indifferent husband who thinks the shabby looking counter looks fine (which is unacceptable), this RustOleum counter top paint is a happy medium for the money. Provided the counter is properly prepped before applying this paint, the results look great. Everyone is happy including the new tenant. It looks nice and fresh and should last a few years with proper care. Will have to see how well this holds up with time though.

If you have an outdated kitchen that needs a quick refresh, and don't have money to replace the counters, then this is a quick and fairly simple way to give your counters an extra couple years. You do need a well ventilated area, and you need xylene for immediate clean ups. Just be careful because once the paint touches something, it's not coming off without using xylene. And once it dries, even xylene won't remove it. Let it dry well before using or applying a new coat. Water stains will generally dry properly a few minutes after wiping. Any prolonged exposure to wet heat will permanently discolor and require a fresh coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality for the $$$ 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 4 out of 5 by from Easy countertop facelift I painted my countertops black using the countertop paint almost 3 years ago. The process itself was fairly easy, though smelly (don't do this project unless you can open windows). I did my counters in sections because of the long cure time. After it cured, I put a coat of Minwax clear Polyacrylic over it to increase the shine (I like glossy countertops) and durability. I noticed that after I used the Polyacrylic, the finish was much harder than it had been. After 3 years, I am noticing a few chips along the edge, but I can't complain about how it has held up. For $20, my stained countertops got a whole new look, and I've been very happy with the results.

This was easy to use - just paint on with a brush or roller, depending on if you want any kind of texture on your cabinet. If you want a completely smooth surface, use a roller, but if you want some texture, use a brush. This paint does show every texture mark left behind by either applicator, so if you want a really smooth surface, be extra careful and take your time. It goes on shiny, but dries to a matte. It also has a VERY strong chemical smell, which takes about two days to really go away. I used the Coastal Blue color and really like it.
