Very happy so far with the results. The only issue we had is there was no information in the instructions on how to do larger countertops were you have to use more than one kit. We looked over the directions and watched the video. It does mention if you have larger areas to work in smaller sections but didn't show in the video how we should do that. You apply the base and add the chips which go everywhere. How are you supposed to work in smaller sections. We lucked out that after sanding the countertops we had enough product to go over it a second time, we had some thin spots because we were afraid the product would be to dry with having to roll it all of it at once. Information was not their on how to work in smaller sections. On the upside going over it a second time made it thicker and it came out great.

EASY, FUN WEEKEND PROJECT
Transformed our cabin kitchen counters in just 1 weekend all by myself. I would definitely recommend this product. Suggest watching the video and take your time to sand. Also, it was very easy to do with 1 person, but I would recommend 2 if I were to do it again.

    Waste of a Beautiful Weekend and $200
    This was my wife’s idea and she started it on her own. Once I saw what she was doing and the labor involved, I took over. Sanded the original countertops for approx. 5 hours to get them right. Applied the base coat which is to thin and doesn’t have enough “body” to it. You’ll find this out later. I used the brush and she used the roller then I applied the chips. The chip spreader is junk. You are better off using your hand. After waiting 14 hours to cure, starting the chip sanding process. This is like sanding sandpaper. They should supply you with at LEAST two of the two different sanding blocks. When you begin the sanding process with the intent of getting the surface to match that of the sample provided, don’t even attempt to get it to that point! You can’t! This is where the problem of the adhesive basecoat lacking in body comes into play. You’ll never get it to match the sample smoothness without burning through it and exposing the old countertop. If you do that, now you have more problems to fix. That being said, since you can’t sand it smooth enough, now your surface is very coarse. I could already see where this was going. Once you apply the clear top coat, (It doesn’t have enough “body” either) the surface being very coarse and rough, I was going to end up with a surface that was going to grab and hold food particles like crazy. I think I’ll call it tbe Covid Countertop because of the germs it will be retaining. I’m sitting here now watching it dry and cursing myself for doing it and Rustoleum for making it. I wish she just would have purchased new countertops and put the $200 towards that instead.

    Thank you for your feedback, Doug! Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformation Kit is not designed to be a perfectly smooth finish and will have a slight texture to it. The surface needs to be completely covered in the Decorative Chips to ensure the best appearance and durability. When sanding, too much pressure on the provided block can damage the coating.

      Product worked as expected and has held up good in the three weeks since I’ve completed the work. The grey did darker much more than expected and only reason I didn’t give it five stars.

      It seemed to do a very good job. Easy but also an involved process. It may have been easier to just replace the counters. I am happy with the end results as long as it holds up for several years.

      DO NOT USE IF IT WILL LIKELY GET WET OFTEN!
      The product worked great everywhere except behind the sink! I redid my counters about a year ago and everything except behind the sink looks good. About 2 months ago the material started peeling and I spoke to rustoleum and the only fix is to redo the entire thing!

      We appreciate your feedback! Proper surface prep is essential in ensuring the longevity of the Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformations Kit. Please keep in mind that water is an aggressive environment for coatings, so not allowing water to pool on the surface for extended periods of time is also recommended.

        Definitely needed several coats of adhesive and chips. I tried doing small areas at a time so I didn't have to use the wetting agent. The wetting agent only ruined the coating of adhesive and I stopped using it after the first two tries. Very glad I bought extra. The finished look is great after 3 or more applications. Now to see if it holds up over time.

        Thanks for sharing your experience, DW. Please keep in mind that the Wetting Agent from the Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformations Kit keeps the Adhesive Base Coat wet longer and improves the adhesion of the Decorative Color Chips. It is important to only use the Wetting Agent on the Adhesive Base Coat. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum

        Very time consuming process. Don’t be afraid to go real heavy with base coat. Almost done the process. Had to do a second coat cause poor coverage. Some areas went to light with base coat. Definitely cheaper than a new counter and cabinets. Just make sure you have somewhere to prep cooking in between. Will be top coating tonight. Wish there was a way to use power sander for the prep part. Prepping laminate counters requires a ton of sanding.

        After watching the Rust-Oleum Transformations promotional and how to apply videos, I thought it was to good to be true. Then I moved forward on getting a quote to replace the countertops and the cost was more than I could afford. So I went ahead and purchased the Rust-Oleum Transformations product hoping it would not disappoint. It has exceeded my expectations by 100%. I followed the directions as written and shown in the installation video and the results were amazing and it cost a little over $200. The finish looks professional, the durability is incredible, but most import the application was so easy.
