Overall our countertops look amazing and I love them, but they aren’t perfect. The biggest issue I have had is some slight yellowing. The other issue is there are a few areas where you can see light scratches when the light hits it.
WHAT CAUSED THE PAINT TO SCRATCH?
We do have three small boys, and this is primarily an issue in the area where the kids like to do craft projects. Thankfully, it is only noticeable when the light hits at a certain angle. There may be a way to buff these out, but they are so minor, I haven’t looked into it.
THE BEST PAINT FOR COUNTERTOPS
It really doesn’t matter what kind of paint you use. The paint is not the key to painting countertops so they last. The key to the longevity of our painted countertops is 100% the resin topcoat I used over the paint. Resin gives it a thick, clear and durable finish.
I would definitely still paint my countertops and I would use the same resin sealer. The one thing I would do differently is add more gray graining to my ‘marble’ countertops. But,I’m pretty happy with the results!
