There’s been a few emails, wondering what I think of the new Countertop Transformations kit by RustOleum, the latest product to hit the market, offering a relatively inexpensive solution to existing laminate countertops, compared to the expense of replacement.
I used the kit two weeks ago while attending a RustOleum event in New Orleans.
As we all know, fabricating and installing new countertops is pricey, and in this economy, not something all of us can be investing right now. But there are so many kitchens out there with outdated laminate or Formica countertops ~ those leftover yellows, avocado greens, and burgundies from decades past. Short of replacing them, what choices does a homeowner have?
Carmell recently posted on my Facebook Page the following:
“Hi CG! I just want to thank you for your post on the RustOleum Cabinet Transformations. I am looking forward to the countertop one too. I showed my hubby and I think I’ve finally have him convinced that we should do this in our kitchen. We can’t afford a complete reno right now. The kitchen is so new so why not save the money for something else? Here is what it looks like right now.
Picture dark cabinets with granite counters and lighter walls. *swoons* I wish I had 10 kitchens in my house so I can redo them all in different cab/countertop combos!”
Good news Carmell, take a look at Kelly’s Before & After, submitted to RustOleum after using both the Cabinet and the Countertop Transformations products.
