Painting a new color:

  1. Pick a color that suits your fancy. Use satin or semi-gloss paint.
  2. Thoroughly clean the countertop surface with soap and water. Dry with a cloth.
  3. Lightly sand the surface with 150-grit sandpaper. Wipe off dust.
  4. Prime with a 100 percent acrylic primer for covering gloss or high-gloss surfaces.
  5. Once the first coat of primer dries, apply a second.
  6. Apply a couple coats of paint. Once dry, seal it with a couple coats of clear acrylic. Be gentle when cleaning the countertops for a couple weeks because it takes that long to cure.
