Updating white tile countertops

It was pretty streaky and splotchy, with the dark gray still showing through, but that’s okay. It doesn’t matter that the coverage wasn’t smooth or covered 100%.

We did replace quite a few of them in the bathrooms, but the two that were next to our brand new kitchen didn’t make the priority list, and unfortunately clashed with the new pretty quartzite not fifteen feet away.

So I decided to paint them to look like faux marble counters.

They looked so good – and held up great to every day use for over a year.

In the above picture, you can see how the pearl paint added a little bit of shine and depth to the finished counter.

This was a great temporary fix while we waited to replace them. After we replaced all the floors in the house, the first thing I did in this space was paint the cabinets black using Amy Howard chalk paint in black, and replaced the dated hardware.

This is the bar/wine/coffee area the day we settled on the house, before we did anything to it. All of the counters I’m talking about are all in the great room area, which includes our new kitchen with quartzite counters that look very much like marble.When people came over, they were always surprised to find out they were painted!Unfortunately, we moved before I could take proper “after” pictures with less glare, no mess and no painters tape left behind. So, yes, you can paint over ugly granite counter tops and make them a thing of beauty.
