Rust-Oleum Transformations has a lot of good reviews for painting countertops. You'll want to visit your local hardware store but before you can read reviews online and tutorials on YouTube.

You will need to clean it well then give it a light sanding with fine sandpaper. You'll need a primer before you paint it.

Ask at your local home improvement store. There is paint to do this. I saw a program on the Home and Garden channel one day a few years ago, showing how to paint counter tops so that they looked like granite.

It was a few day long process, but they looked real when the job was done.

They have kits to do this in Home Depot and similar stores with full instructions. The colors you chose would be fine.

It depends on what material your counter is. Formica? Stone? Laminate? because depending on the material, you can either just paint, prep and paint, or resurface.

Black and white would be awesome, especially if you could get a checkerboard floor going.

I want to paint my counter tops in the bathrooms and kitchen. I don't want to have to worry about putting my flat iron or toaster oven on them.
