Giani Granite Countertop Paint Bathroom Remodel

My bathrooms were a nightmare - straight out of the 70s with the original everything.  White cabinets that had layers of paint and chipping away...cultured marble countertops that were chipped and had cigarette stains.   First I repainted the cabinets with Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations.  LOVE this product and have used it in 2 bathrooms and am working on my kitchen. 
BEFORE - do not be fooled.  This was tricky realtor photography and was far dirtier and uglier in person
I considered several options and since we were on a limited budget I decided to jump in and try Giani Countertop Paint.  I think it was great success.  And admittedly I was pretty skeptical.  My artistic skills leave A LOT to be desired.  But when people come over they really have to do a double or triple take to realize it isn't granite. 


I don't think this will be a long term solution, but so far it's holding up really well!

It's really a good thing that you decided to remodel your bathroom. Sometimes, change can be a good thing and here, change made your new bathroom more beautiful! I love that granite counter! It looks so elegant and classy! Your research has paid off and this is the outcome! :)

There's nothing quite as satisfying as a bathroom remodel. Especially when you need to "fix" what originally never should have been done. And those realtor photographs are often disappointing, but at least you got a solution. Home improvement projects are tough, and you found a pretty decent initial solution, hopefully it leads to a long term fix on the bathroom update.
