As some family and friends know, we are in the process of remodeling our kitchen. Like any do-it-yourself job, it takes about 500 times longer than you plan for!

Our kitchen is about 50% complete, the cabinets are hung, the backsplash is up, and the countertops are on. We still have a lot to do, but we will get there. That’s why we were excited to be use Giani Granite Paint for our counter tops. This process was surprisingly easy and gave our kitchen a much needed, beautiful update.
What most people don’t know is why we are remodeling our kitchen (other than it previously being old and disgusting).
We had planned on getting to the kitchen “one of these days,” but in early fall, we came across Giani Granite Paint for Countertops.
Since we moved into our house in 2003, we wanted to replace our countertops – along with everything else in our kitchen. So when read that Giani would allow us to easily refinish our countertops, we were thrilled!
We thought refinishing our countertops was something we’d have done in 2 weeks. We could have definitely met the standard short time period for refinishing with Giani Granite, however, it led to me thinking like any other male would think.
I remember saying “Well, if we are gonna do the countertops, we should put in new cabinets.” Then it became,”If we are replacing the cabinets on we need a new sink, faucet, backsplash, and why not switch the location of the stove & fridge and also add a dishwaser?”
All that grew to…”While we’re at it, the tile on our wall is ugly and from the ‘60’s and the floor is dreadful with lots of cracks, let’s rip them both out. We’ll drywall & lay new flooring. Let’s install an over-the-stove microwave. Let’s…Let’s redo EVERYTHING!”
Those words ring in my head every day as I walk thru our incomplete kitchen. It’s looking great, but there is still a lot to be done.
We’re getting there!
Giani Granite Paint for Countertops is a simple 3-step process to give your existing countertops a stunning granite appearance.
Today I did Step 1 for one side of the kitchen.
First, I lined the cabinets and walls around the countertop with painter’s tape.
Next, I poured the primer solution and used the roller in the kit to spread it.
The big hint for this part is to do 3 foot sections at a time and then back roll it a couple of times to make sure the primer is spread evenly and there are no roller lines in your countertop once it dries. This step took about 15 minutes to complete, but now I have to wait at least 8 hours until I can do the next step.
I am planning on completing all 3 steps over the next couple of days by doing one step a day.
I will be sharing updates & will include pictures to show the simplicity and beauty of the Giani Granite Paint for Countertops. So far with just the primer our countertops look great and the process was very simple. Tésa is excited and our primary concern is keeping the kids away from the countertop for the next couple of days!
