I am on this sight to see bout painting countertops. I have had someone (from Lowes) come & measure to have my countertops replaced. The actual countertops them self wee priced @ $560. to have my old ripped out, new ones put in & my stove top & sink hooked back up will cost over $1400. Now you are saying if you paint them right it will cost that much? I don't buy that. And, thanks to everyone on tips & ideas. They were greatly needed.
