Painting Kitchen Countertops

A few weeks ago you had a caller who had a question regarding her old Formica countertops. You mentioned a product that I believe is a paint type product that comes in different colors and which gives a very nice look to Formica. What is that product?

The Money Pit Answer

There are actually a number of products for painting kitchen countertops.  The original product is called Gianni.  It comes in 6 colors and looks great.  For even more options, see Rustoleum's Countertop Paint, which comes in 17 different colors.  Be sure that your countertop is in good structural condition before applying either of these products.  While beautiful, they won't conceal a top that has water damage!
