There are few home improvement projects you can not do yourself (besides, well, anything electrical). Whether you're installing a toilet, putting at a subway tile backsplash, upping your garage door game, or perhaps marbleizing your countertops, there is nothing stopping you--unless, of course, you'd like to hire a pro.
There are all kinds of hacks out there for getting marble-looking kitchen counters, but this one genuinely shocked editors. For only $89, the Giani Marble Countertop Paint Kit (yes, paint), can transform your current counters to give you the appearance of Carrara marble"without the clutter, time, or price." According to their site, painting your countertops is a simple, three-step application process which can transform Formica, laminate, Corian, ceramic tile, butcher block, cultured marble, and traditional granite into white Carrara marble"in a single weekend."|}
Each kit comes with all the tools to cover a 35-square-foot surface, including primer, gray veining mineral, white highlight mineral, a marble protective topcoat, paint roller and 2 extra pads, cutting brush, and paint sponge, foam brush, artist brush, and misting bottle, practice plank, and--of course--instructions.
I really don't know about you, but when it's as simple as it sounds (which it appears to have mixed reviews about), I am DTDIY (*tries to make Down To DIY occur *).
