Questions & Answers

Previous Counter Color

I want to purchase the Sicilian Sand for the counter tops, but my counter tops are now black. Will the sand color still show up on black counter tops or will it come out to dark?
Asked by: Cheree
Hello there! The color of your current counter tops won't make any difference in regards to the end result. This is because the first step of Giani is to roll on our IronCore primer-which is black. After your primer has dried, you will sponge on your Mineral paints to your liking. You can adjust them to your preference-whether that be lighter or darker-during this sponging process. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Can use this kit on wood?

Asked by: Patticake
Thanks for reaching out! We are happy to provide additional instructions on applying Giani to wood. As a note, plywood is a very challenging surface because its natural wood grain will typically telegraph through the final finish. You may want to use particle board or MDF board as an alternative. The key is to ensure that your wood surface is as smooth as possible before starting. First, clean everything with a Brillo or SOS pad. Rinse several times to remove residue and allow to dry. Then, patch any nicks or cracks with a good wood putty. Next, lightly sand the counters with a #600 grit sandpaper and use a damp rag to remove all sanding dust. After the surface has dried, you'll want to use 1-2 coats of a good wood primer. Apply the wood primer with a foam roller for ultra-smooth finishes because thicker nap rollers will leave a textured finish. After the wood primer has dried, you can begin the standard Giani process. Please let us know if we can help with anything else. Thanks again, and have a great day!

Can I combine two different color kits to achieve the color I want?

The white kit is too light and the black too dark. Can I combine two different color kits to achieve the look that I want?
Asked by: StephanieG
Absolutely! Our paints are very customizable so feel free to combine the mineral colors that you are looking for. The instructions would remain the same, simply add the other colors that you would like on your countertop.

I am very impressed with how revitalized the counter tops now appear with such a simple process! I typically forego artsy type finishes simply because I don't like to do them but this was totally different. Apply a base coat, then do three sponge applications, add a finish and that's it.

The instructions and how to video made it a relatively simple process, and the final result is amazing. I was pleasantly surprised by how much it actually looks like granite. It is a great, cost-effective way to instantly improve the look of your counters.

The instructions were very insightful and if I needed additional help, their website was very helpful. They include more than enough product to complete 2 large vanities. This is one of the first projects I attempted after acquiring our home. It's been down about 2 months and been through a lot of renovation construction. Holding up so far. I used it on 1980's Formica vanities counters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weekend with Giani The kit was put together well. The written instructions were good but the instructional video was more helpful and covered a bit more than the written instructions. There were adequate amounts of primer and mineral paints but the topcoat just barely provided the two topcoats. The final outcome turned out great and friends were just astonished with how incredible the counters looked and kept touching the counter and asking "this is just paint?". Now that I've completed this project and have the technique down I wished I had another project to do as the transformation is beautiful and I just keep staring and marveling at the counters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not great for a kitchen used daily I wanted to wait a while to post a review after really seeing how the product worked. I did our countertops this time last year. I think the overall initial look was AMAZING, however, if you are someone who uses their kitchen daily to actually cook it doesn't hold up well. In all the areas not used consistently that area looks amazing as the day I did it. The area used daily has had the sealer and paint chipping away. I have had to redue that area 3 times now in the past year. I ended up touching it up again but this time instead of using their seal I bought Famowood Glaze Coat from Menards. This was harder to apply but much more durable. Otherwise I found this product great for a temporary update!

All reviews are submitted after application - would like to see if they are still happy after 2 years! We were happy with the application and looked great - for about 6 months. Used this in our kitchen and had problems from day one. Giani sent us another kit and we totally re-did the application. We followed the instructions to the tee but this product doesn't like water and soon it was peeling around the sink. Kitchen counters have water on them - a lot, and this product doesn't handle water at all. Now I need to sand it all off and go with a different product - waste of time.
