My counters were laminate too. I cleaned them first w/ Comet. Then primed with Kilz. Used a satin base coat-2 coats, followed by a faux finish with 4 glazes. Then topped with 4 coats of polyacrylic. Since I posted my question I sanded them with 180 grit paper and reapplied another coat of poly. The sheen is great but I still see a couple of streaks from the foam brush that I used to apply it. Going to try to touch those up today. I tried to download a pic, but it isn't working. Bummer!
Hi Dawn! What type finish were your countertops before you painted?? I am looking to remodel my kitchen and would love to paint mine....they are a laminate........wonder if it would accept paint??
you probably didn't allow enough drying time between coats. allow 48 hrs for very best results, longer if the weather is hot and humid or damp. you can still lightly sand (with fine sandpaper) the rough parts and put down one more coat.
