Tips to Refinish Countertops

Updated:2014-06-24 11:30:39
Whether refinishing a damaged bathroom sink countertop or worn-out kitchen counters, refinishing the counter surface is an affordable option. This relatively simple renovation adds new life to a boring kitchen or spruces up an outdated bathroom. Refinishing works best on laminate surfaces. Plan on two days to complete this project and for countertops to fully dry.

Instructions as follows:

                                                          

Firstly, clean the counter surface and wipe it down with denatured alcohol to remove any grease. Dry the surface completely with a dry, clean rag.
Secondly, cover stone walls, corners, sink edges, faucets and areas which need to be protected from the primer and acrylic paint with masking tape.
Thirdly, sand the entire countertop including edges and corners using the 120-grit sandpaper and the palm sander to texture the surface. Texturing the laminate helps paint adhere. Wipe the entire counter clean with a damp cloth to remove the dust from sanding; dry the countertop completely.
Fourthly, use a paintbrush to cut in the corners of the granite countertops with primer. Use a paint roller to apply two smooth, thin layers of primer, allowing each layer to dry completely.
Fifthly, when the primer coats are completely dried, sand the primer surface lightly to score the paint, which helps it accept the acrylic finishing coats. Remove all dust with a damp cloth and dry completely.
