I'm taking a little break from miscarriages and death for a day.
I've spent 2 weeks surrounded by it and while I've just gotten a call that the end is near for my grandma, I'm going to pretend for just a few hours that everything doesn't suck.
I realized that before we left Oregon in May I did not show you the final results of my countertop paint experiment.
Believe me, I thought long and hard about just leaving it half finished, but in the end I went ahead and completed the project and I gotta say...it looks better than it did before.
But...countertop paint is by no means perfect, there are lots of little scratches and blemishes that happened many weeks maybe even a month after the counter had been painted, which is well beyond the recommended 48 hours that it takes for the paint to "set".
So, without further ado, here is the countertop before:
And the countertops after:
From afar I think they're awesome. I much prefer the gray to the red, but there are little boo boo's like this:
And when you try to fix the boo boo's you get this:
So, to sum up. Love the color and the ultimate look from afar, but not happy with close up result.
Once we're back in Oregon for any length of time that has nothing to do with funerals or death we'll do some experimenting and hopefully find a solution to fix the monstrosity of ugliness that is that last picture.
Until then countertop paint is not getting a big fat thumbs up from me, but it's not getting a thumbs down either because like I said, it looks better than the red. So, what is that a thumb sideways?
Anyone else try countertop paint yet? Have better results?
