There are several home improvement projects you can't do yourself anymore (besides, well, anything electric ). Whether you are installing a toilet, placing in a subway tile backsplash, upping your garage game, or perhaps marbleizing your countertops, there is nothing stopping you--unless, of course, you would prefer 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 look of Carrara marble"without the mess, 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 to white Carrara marble"in one weekend."|}
Each kit comes with all the tools to cover a 35-square-foot surface, including primer, grey veining mineral, white highlight mineral, a marble protective topcoat, paint roller and two extra pads, softening brush, paint sponge, foam brush, artist brush, misting bottle, clinic plank, and--of course--instructions.
I really don't know about you, but if it's as easy as it seems (that it seems to have mixed reviews around ), I am DTDIY (*tries to make Down To DIY occur *).
