The original countertops in the Avion were either a dark brown or a hideous yellow. I couldn’t stand them! But I knew we couldn’t afford to replace them so I set out to find a product that I could use to faux finish them.
After all the research I ended up going with Giani countertop paint kit in White Diamond.
First I had to clean the counters well, tape everything off and then apply the primer:
Then there are three sets of minerals that you dob on with a textured sponge. In this case it was a Pearl Mica, Inca Gold and a white limestone. First coat went well though it wasn’t quite the look I wanted. I didn’t care for the Inca Gold.
I had envisioned a brighter look. Fortunately I had enough minerals to go over it again. And that gave me the look I wanted!
After you get the look you want with applying the minerals you apply the epoxy clear coat over it. I had enough to do 2 coats of epoxy but would loved to have do 3 coats.
All in all this was a fun project and by only spending $90 on Amazon for the kit I was really pleased how it turned out! I would certainly do it again!
