DIY Painted Faux Granite | Giani White Diamond | Formica Countertops | Bathroom Makeover | Faux Posh
I am so proud to present this tutorial video to you all, finally! I have been working on renovating our home with my husband, and the hideous, peach formica counter tops were the bane of our existence! So I decided to paint over them. I used the Giani Granite White Diamond Countertop kit. I will leave the link below for the kit and the epoxy that I used. You can use regular acrylic paints if you want! I chose the White Diamond kit because it has this “Pearl Mica ” color that gives the faux granite that natural stone-look shine. One box kit covered my master bathroom and a few other projects, with plenty to spare; so, I recycled and used the remaining product on my guest bathroom. I do strongly feel that the epoxy is what gives it that real granite look; the real edge that made it look so glass-like. using leftover paint from other projects, I painted the walls and the cabinets. On the cabinets I actually used my gripper primer that Home Depot tinted gray for me, to cut out the extra steps of primer then painting :). I also added a little white, wood trim detail to the mirror to fancy it up a little. (glued on with gorilla glue). The last and final touch… the hardware! I am obsessed with these Brushed Nickel handles that i found online, in bulk, on Amazon. I bought about 40 of them for my kitchen and bathroom cabinets, to keep it cohesive. For the epoxy, I recommend using the Parks brand, or another reputable CLEAR epoxy of your choice. Biggest piece of advice, PREP AND PROTECT everything that you dont want ruined by the epoxy. It dries fast, so work fast, and prepare more than enough of the epoxy resin mixture, before you get started. You will want plenty to fall over the edge, because if it doesn’t, once the resin starts curing it will shrink up and cause a ripple or dimples in your resin. So don’t be stingy. In fact, be very generous. You won’t regret it! . I wait 2 weeks before placing heavy objects on my epoxy sealed counters, but after about 2 days you can put light, non-sharp or gritty items on them and they will be fine. If you have any questions please comment down below 🙂 I am also eager to upload more DIY videos, so let me know what else you want to see. Love you guys!
