Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great alternative to purchasing new countertops I bought this product to update my condo's kitchen countertops before selling. I did not want to spend a ton of money on new ones. I am so glad I did this instead. This was a really easy weekend project. If you are able to read directions, sand and paint-you can do this! The counters came out great. A tiny bit bumpy in spots (likely due to our not sanding enough before putting on the final stage, but it still looks great.) Please note-The final stage you paint on to seal the counter top is VERY stinky. Be sure to have kids and pets out of the house, and you will probably want to open some windows too. February 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Can't believe my kitchen!! Was it a little work? Yes. But if you follow the steps exactly you will be so happy with results. I watched the video prior to each step and followed. My only mistake was not scoring the painters tape before removing. My kitchen looks amazing and no one can believe it wasn't a piece of granite February 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely Pleased I was apprehensive about taking on this project because I knew that if the product was inferior it would mean replacing our countertops, which was an expense we did not want to entertain. The kit comes with detailed and understandable instructions along with a very well done dvd that takes you through a sample project from start to finish. As others have attested, it is important to follow the instructions. The steps are simple for most any homeowner to take on. We completed the job just yesterday and it looks great. It looks like it's made of expensive granite or quartz. The true test will be how it wears, but given the positive experience we've had so far with this product, I have no doubt that it will hold up just fine. July 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to apply. Some rough spots I think this is totally worth the money. It turned our green laminate counter-tops to a much more modern look for a great price. Granted I have only been using them for about three weeks and they have held up great. I hope they give me two years till we can get new ones! I recommend saving the extra top coat because there were some patches that thinned out a bit after it dried that I would have liked to reapply for more durability. I also I did a 32 Sq. Ft kitchen with a large kit ( supposed to cover 50) and used all of the base coat. So if you are on the fence with size I would buy an extra kit to make sure you have enough base coat. March 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice alternative to the expense of granite We used this product in our beach rental a year ago and it still looks like new. Also have it in a year round rental for the past 3 years and have seen no signs of wear & tear. It transformed ugly, worn countertops, giving them a "like new" face lift. I recommend reading the directions thoroughly and follow their tried & true recommendations. It is much more efficient to utilize 2 people and get your entire project done over a 2 day period. Recommend putting plastic sheeting on the floor to catch the extra particles as it make clean-up much easier. Getting ready to try a different color in our home this year. May 18, 2014
