Marble is one of the most expensive options in kitchen countertops.

All surfaces should be structurally sound before attempting to refinish.

To avoid brush marks in your surface, use a spray paint and sealer (remove countertops first, or thoroughly protect non-sprayed surfaces with plastic and painter’s tape) or a dense sponge roller to apply primer and paint.

Afterward, be sure to seal your paint with three to four coats of polyurethane to protect the finish.

Old, damaged countertops do nothing but detract from the value and beauty of your home.

Good news: There are many ways to get inexpensive countertops that still look good.
