Aileen - I have gotten in trouble on this site for telling people not to paint countertops. But I will continue to do it.

I would not recommend painting countertops - regular house paints were not designed for this sort of use - and will fail.

Specialty products (2 component epoxy) work better - but can be difficult to use - and are expensive.

I would look into a pre-made counter top at your local home improvement store - you will likely find that they aren't that expensive - likely around $10/ft.

Do yourself a favor - replace your counters - don't paint them.
