    HORRIBLE voiceover

    The tan countertops work better with the cabinet color. Jet black is the worst color to use because of the amount of imperfections it shows. Not to mention dust on a black surface, even the day after dusting, you notice immediately. You will regret this choice in a big area such as a kitchen.

    Use vinyl peel n stick instead

    How do I remove this? The previous homeowners did this and I hate the look. They are even chipping now.

    thanks for the video!!
    but…black over oldish green?

  6. Rita Madan on November 14, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    Hi DIY Network!
    What brand of color and the name of the color are the kitchen cabinets? I really love this bright color. Thank you and your instructions are easy and clear. Rita

    Looks much better. 👍

  8. no further west on November 14, 2020 at 8:55 pm

    Not worth it. Final product didn’t look very good.

  9. Beans on November 14, 2020 at 8:55 pm

    Texture? No thank you. What a petri dish 😬

  10. Tammera Calisha on November 14, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    This looks horrible!

  11. David Matthews on November 14, 2020 at 9:02 pm

    Black??????

  12. Vnfo on November 14, 2020 at 9:03 pm

    Original color looked better.

    My wife & I have seen these jobs up close and we can’t think of a worse thing to do to your counter tops. It looks and feels super cheap, and is nothing like marble or granite. Plus it suffers significant rapid wear in the way of scratches and chips, so why spend all that time, energy & money for a subpar job that won’t last? Just be patient and save up until you can purchase some decent stone ~ it’s not so expensive that it’s out of reach. We spend $4100 for top tier Quartz installed ~ got it during a sale at Lowes with 24 months same as cash, so the payments were only $165 a month. Lower tier Quartz it is over $1000 less!

    What kind of paint is this

  15. Devank Chawla on November 14, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    Can you suggest whether it is advisable to paint or breaking the old counter and adding a new .
    Does this paint ever come off? I ask because kitchen counter tops are wiped clean with a spray and cloth daily twice.

    Everything was looking easy until you started doing the vain part you lost me there

  17. Kim Shaffner on November 14, 2020 at 9:07 pm

    Can’t wait to try this😃

  18. Profit Glen on November 14, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    Interesting but too much work.

  19. Leonard Lawrent on November 14, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    Forget about making it look like stone, that’s what makes it look so cheap, don’t gamble ruining kitchen counters with your nonexistent artistic talent.
    New laminated countertops are not very expensive, save for it, don’t you be cheap either.

  20. lialex22 on November 14, 2020 at 9:13 pm

    we get the oil paint in homedepot?

  21. Orlando Mestre on November 14, 2020 at 9:14 pm

    This is real bad

  22. Josephina Campos on November 14, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    Use vinyl peel n stick instead

  23. Abdelatif Ardone on November 14, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    no sanding ?

    Lot of work and if it doesn’t go well.. You’re screwed. I seen the rustoleum countertop paint for 22 bucks a can. One step process. It’s easy, clean and the reviews even after having the product applied for months.. Are incredible. I’ve seen these counters up close and personal, and they are beautiful.
    This is risky. If you mess up the veining you are right back to where you start with the easy stuff. You’re just going to go over it anyway and end up with a solid color. Nope this product can run as high as 200 to 250 dollars depending on what brand and.. It’s a lot of work.
    Do a quick sand. Clean it, and do the it the easy way. They turn out beautiful and it’s under 25 bucks.
    Just reached this conclusion after watching this video. Nope going in the other direction.
    Absolutely

    Didn’t know stones have veins

    Looked better, brighter, and cleaner with the beige tops and mint green cabinets. Would update the flooring instead.

  29. John Helton on November 14, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    I think you should visit the Woodglut website if you want to do it yourself.

  30. Anik waikar on November 14, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    The paint must be flammable, is this safe for kitchens as there will be gas stove there

  31. renier gutierrez on November 14, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    I tried reaching you for business inquiry, What’s your business Inquiry email address ?

  32. Ann Latham on November 14, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    This is my new project! 💪🏻

  33. FOR THE BY&BY on November 14, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    I don’t like it. It looks cheap.

  34. Kerri B on November 14, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Should have used a satin finish on the poly – looks more like stone. The gloss made you lose all the work you did on the veining and texture

  35. Pj Stuss31 on November 14, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    I have a feeling my veining is not gonna go well

  36. Peter Who? on November 14, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Looks too getto for me…
