DIY Stone Countertops with Spray Paint!



okay so I wanted to show what I decided to do to my bathroom counters I tried painting them with the gianni countertop granite kit and it didn't turn out right mostly because I didn't follow the directions I was trying to do more of like a quartz looking counter stop instead of like granite so I didn't do the blotting with the foam and all of that stuff so I decided to do something different and use a sandstone spray paint so this is like a texturized spray paint that makes whatever you spray with the spray paint look like stone so I just picked like this light gray color they had it at Lowe's and I thought it would look kind of like you know like concrete or like kind of like a quartz type stone so that's what I decided to do and so far it does look pretty good like you couldn't see the grits in there and it looks like a real stone to me and then after this process is over of spreading it I've done two coats so far and I'm gonna do a third coat just because you can see like a little drip marks right there and stuff like that and some spots are covered more than others so I'm gonna do one more coat and then I'm gonna put a sealer on top a polyurethane sealer and I will show those steps as well so right now this is what I have and looks pretty good so far in my opinion and don't forget to make sure you cover everything so there's gonna be a lot of overspray with spray paint then you have to make sure you do it from far away like hold the spray paint can very far away especially with the texture stuff because then it will just clump big textured globs on it and it won't spray evenly so I have a cardboard down I have all kinds of stuff and make sure your fans on make sure you're using um a mask of ventilator Mac's mask if you have one and keep your windows open make the kids go outside all that stuff be safe because spray paint is toxic okay so that's it for right now and I'll show you when I do another coat and then I'll show you when I put the sealer on top

    You could use a heat resistant clear coat epoxy on top of that to make it more durable.

    What did you use to seal it to give it a smooth surface?

    That looks really brown on here. Not light grey at all. That's weird!

    I did my bathroom 2 years ago. And brushed 5 coats of polyurethane and it’s held up really good still. To stop the Bloch look and spots you had shake the can more often and hold a little further away if you didn’t. Looks good though and the stuff is amazing for a cheaper remodel look.

    This looks interesting! If you want to try. Try the marble contact paper then pour Epoxy Resin over it. Much easier! Than Gianni kit. Cheaper too. I’ve done many projects and it ends up feeling like real marble or at least close!! Make sure to buy a non yellowing uv resistant epoxy resin! Sometimes you need two coats of Epoxy. Mainly for edges.

    How has this held up? Do you find it durable with the sealant? What brand/type sealant did you use?
