Want an inexpensive way to transform your old, ugly Formica countertops? Make them look like granite. Easy to do. Just paint a bonding primer and allow to dry. Next sponge on a combination of black and white acrylic paint. Follow up with 4-5 coats of oil based polyurethane. Mine have lasted over 3 years (even with a 5 yr. old son).
Our original countertops were just an old ugly scratched white Formica and we couldn't afford new ones.
I am very proud and happy with the way they look and even my neighbors thought I got new countertops.
