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.

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 solution....it'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 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.

If you can at all avoid this product and find one without the very toxic smell do so.

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 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DJack 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.
