would it yield better lasting results (still short term, of course) if we did a coating of poly after applying this product?

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 83.

I would recommend this paint for bathroom counters but not kitchen. It has held up very well in the bathroom. It hasn't chipped off and holds up to light scrubbing. In the kitchen it has held up to scrubbing and has only had a couple of minor nicks where something heavy was dropped on the cabinet. The big problem in the kitchen is this stuff stains really easy. The kids spilled some red Hawaiian punch on the counter top and we immediately cleaned it up but the counter top where the spill happened has a slight pink tent to it. There are a couple other spots where something red has stained the counter.

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.

It was built in the mid 90's so you know already that the paint scheme was mauve & grey. Unfortunately the counter tops were mauve so I used this product (tinted "wheat" to match the refrigerator trim) to change their color. This product was very easy to use. I cleaned everything, taped off very well and went at it using a very inexpensive roller and brush. I rolled everything I could and used the brush very little. The product evened out quickly, set up fast and was dry when I woke up from my nap. So I put on a second coat and let it set overnight. Use this in a well ventilated area. This isn't water soluble so wear gloves if you are dainty. There is no cleaning your equipment after so use cheap stuff and dispose of it all properly. This is a very good product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from After 2 years terrible..DON'T BUY!!!! I applied this product according to the directions. It smells terrible and is very very strong! After application the product looked good. However time changed that. I never used harsh chemicals or anything like that to clean it. Within a year it started chipping, it hold stains that will not come off and discolored in certain spots. Sure it looked good at first but what doesn't after first applied. Over the long term it will not hold up. Please do not purchase this. It's terrible to live with a countertop and have to be ever so gentle with it in hope no more damage will occur. It was in our bathroom countertop. I can't even imagine if it was a kitchen countertop. I couldn't take it any more after 2 years. Luckily I was able to use ctristrip to remove the rest of it and take the countertop back to original. If you only want your countertop to look good for a few months then go with this but you must be very, very gentle. No matter what you do though it will still look terrible, eventually.

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.

I'm surprised at the lower star reviews, I think this product worked great. Better than expected actually. We can't afford to replace our countertops right now but at least, after using this product, they look attractive. We chose the Grey Mist shade & the Paint Dept. added a little black for us to get a little darker Grey shade (Mahalo for that!). The smell wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be; I would recommend having some Xylene on hand in order to clean your rollers & brushes, etc. and also make sure you talk w/the paint dept. if you have any questions about proper rollers, or procedures for best results. All-in-all, a win for us!

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

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.
