Well I went back and forth on this decision for days. But I finally decided to get the best countertop kit they make from GianiGranite. What I have on my counter tops right now is from GianiGranite. And I know their product holds up well.
Now they’ve come up with a much stronger application for a marble look and it is pretty expensive at $179.99. But I went with it because I really didn’t like the other choices. I don’t want a granite look. I’ve watched their video and it looks pretty simple.
I don’t think I will add the marble touches and just leave it white. In the FAQ’s someone asked the question about whether they could just leave it white with no marbling. And they answered yes, they could certainly do that. Just skip that step of the process.
Here is what I ordered yesterday from Amazon: Giani Marble Epoxy Countertop Kit, Carrara White. This is the only color the stronger application comes in.
I came very close to ordering a strong vinyl peel and stick countertop application from Etsy. Here is the Etsy site if you want to look at their products.
I put regular contact paper like you buy in the stores on my countertop when I first moved here. And it just doesn’t stay down very long in a kitchen or bathroom. So that kind of put me off that idea.
I went to Lowes yesterday for the white cabinet paint I use and it was $52! But I need something durable for cabinets. I’m not sure just what I used last time so I might not be able to just touch it up.
While I was there I looked at their white subway peel and stick tile but it was $8 a foot. And they didn’t have many. Probably not enough for my kitchen.
So I went down the street to Target. I had to pick up Charlie’s eggs anyway.
I looked at wallpaper there that looks like subway tiles that was around $30. But I don’t know if I want that. The look isn’t very realistic, but then I was looking at it in the fluorescent glare of a department store.
So I’m moving along with the project, a bit at a time. My leg from the right ankle up has been swollen just from getting on the step ladder to take down the three cabinet doors the other day.
This morning I’m limping so I got out my ankle brace, but I have forgotten just how it laces up. So I think I’m going to drive over to the doctor’s office this morning and have them refresh my memory so I can wear that for stability.
