Paint a Marble Countertop

Updated:2013-07-29 16:50:18
You can paint a marble countertop in your kitchen or bathroom to give the room a new look. The biggest obstacle to painting marble is its relative smoothness, which causes the surface not to bond with the paint easily. Painting this type of countertop is much like painting a car: It will take multiple coats of primer, paint and coating to do the job right, and you must apply them over a matter of days. You also need to protect yourself from the toxic fumes of the paints you must use.

Instructions as follows:

                                       


Firstly, unscrew and remove any fixtures like the faucet and/or handles that are directly attached to the countertop, using a flare-nut wrench on the fittings. First, though, shut off the water by turning the knobs on the water pipes clockwise as far as they will go. Find the knobs below the sink. If no knob is extant under the sink, turn off the water to the house. Turn on the water faucets to ensure all water has escaped from the pipes. Then cut away and remove any caulking material that seals the space between the counter and wall using a razor knife.

Secondly, sand down the entire countertop surface using an orbital sander with 150-grit sandpaper, making it rougher to accept the paint. Wipe away the sanded dust with a damp rag and dry the surface with a towel.

Thirdly, cover all other parts outside, above and below the counter with newspaper or some similar form of paper cover, securing the sheets with masking tape; make sure the tape borders the very edge of the countertop.

Fourthly, apply an aerosol primer to the countertop's surface, spraying it lightly in even strokes; make sure the room is ventilated. Wait two hours (or however long the primer's instructions say) for the first coat to dry, and then repeat.
