Since I forgot to tell you earlier..
This month so far has been a whirlwind of events and emotions ~
but "mom" is finally starting to relax a little.
Sally is doing better in the new high school and Michelle is due home from Europe on Monday.
I can't wait to hear all about her trip to the Netherlands!!!
The countertop project was a great distraction!
I hope that you are you excited to see the before and after pictures..
Because, I can't wait to show you the Rustoleum Countertop transformation !!!!
Sorry if you have already seen some of these pictures in the last post..
The first thing that you do is tape off your countertops and score them with the diamond sanding block that is provided in the kit. You have to completely sand them to ensure that the adhesive will stick.
Wash the counters and make sure to remove all dust.
Also, cover sink drain with tape so that the color chips do not clog it.
I was soooo nervous about this painting step..
but painting on the paint adhesive was not hard at all.
Sprinkle on the color chips.
This process is fun but very very messy.
I recommend using a lot more plastic protection.
Let the chips sit overnight and then sand the counters down until you get a smooth texture.
Wash, again and again, to remove all dust and then you are ready to paint on the sealer.
Follow the directions in applying the sealer and let dry.
4 hours until firm, 2 days until light use and a whole 7 days until full use.
You all know that I love instant gratification..
And after three days
the countertops were perfectly dry and I had my kitchen put back together.
I do however, recommend following the Rustoleum instructions completely.
So what do I think about this product?
Easy to use!
Are you ready...
