Updating kitchen countertops
Tile countertops are on this list, representing one of the most popular options.
There was a time when tile countertops were all the rage.
You just need to know the basics and from there you can get creative.. A big disadvantage is the fact that tiles don’t create a smooth and even surface.
This can be a big minus when you’re trying to roll a pie crush or to balance a cutting board on the counter.
Like in any other cases, there are both good things and bad things to say about tile countertps. First of all, tiles come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes and this makes these countertops highly customizable.
However, everyone agrees that some options are in the top five anywhere in the world.
And the countertops were caked on with so much grease and dust we had to use oven cleaner to remove it. I’d seen “countertop makeover” kits at Home Depot, but at over 0 a pop, I wasn’t ready to take the plunge. In all fairness, this painting product from the Rustoleum crew has only sixteen color options. Not only that, but the paint would not require priming if I were painting over laminate (which I was) and would stick to just about )I found that the paint stick really came in handy on this project. ), I had read that the paint consistency would be important if the temps were going to drop lower as the paint dried (per the can’s instructions, you should only use this product when temps are between 50 and 90 degrees for three days in a row).
I think I make a pretty good case for why someone would want to paint everything just for the sake of freshening up the place rather than waiting on the true demo and remodeling to begin. Maybe we haven’t covered this before, but I’m first. I found that the color separated from the tint base quite easily (I’d only bought the paint two days before painting), so stirring it up was key.
The kitchen ceiling was orange from years of smoke damage; the floor was yellowed linoleum.
The fridge was filthy and I found one of those lovely fingernails you’ve heard me whine so much about. During my limited time researching this product, I’d learned from user reviews that this stuff was pretty toxic and would take three full days for the paint to cure.
days that it takes to cure, the paint will stick quite well and wear nicely over the next year or so (before we replace them with an upgraded material).
