DIY Faux Granite Countertops and Painted Cabinets $150 TOTAL!!

DIY Faux Granite Countertops and Painted Cabinets $150 TOTAL!!

This was a really fun, simple, inexpensive project that gave my kitchen a whole new look! The cost for redoing both the countertops and cabinets cost us only $150!

The two videos I followed step by step are below;



**If going for a white countertop look, use polyacrylic, not Polyurethane. I used the Polyurethane and it has yellowed especially under stationary items (toaster, dishdry rack, etc.). All part of the learning experience 🙂
I’ve heard that Polyacrylic will not yellow like Polyurethane does.

Primer used on counter tops: KILZ interior Oil based primer
