There are several ways to create a counter top to appear to be granite without breaking you're bank account. However, many of you may ask, how durable is the coating? how much does it cost? The process we here at Mack's Painting use is heat resistant up to 175°f.

Also has the durability that of a new counter top you may purchase from Lowes, or home depot etc. Ranging from $200-$300 for most Kitchens and bathrooms.

Can I paint it? I have a 60's to 70's style bathroom. I like it, and made everything look old fashion, but just want it painted plain or Marblized style, somehow.

First of course you prepare the surface you're painting on, with sanding, cleaning, then pre-painting with Killz, etc

I would pick different shades of grey, from very dark to light grey. First paint the dark coat on. Then take something like a sea sponge which has the different hole patterns that you'd expect to see in granite, dip it in different coloured greys, and stamp the sponge onto it (after the dark paint has dried, of course)
