Description

This was a really fun, simple, inexpensive project that gave my kitchen a whole new look! The cost for redoing both the countertops and cabinets cost us only $150!

The two videos I followed step by step are below;

**If going for a white countertop look, use polyacrylic, not Polyurethane. I used the Polyurethane and it has yellowed especially under stationary items (toaster, dishdry rack, etc.). All part of the learning experience :)
I've heard that Polyacrylic will not yellow like Polyurethane does.

Primer used on counter tops: KILZ interior Oil based primer
