I recently bought a what I felt were cute kitchen counters. There was something about them that just didn't seem up-to-date. While I was re-arranging my paints and finishes for the upteenth time, I came across something called Granite Stone. I had no idea why I was buying it when I did. But then, do I ever? LOL I also bought two other types of finishes by the same company.
|I can't wait to try the others!|
The only problem I came across is the paint on the sink. I wanted it to look like stainless steel. Instead it looks gloppy. (thick and sloppy for my friends from outside the US). I used a silver Sharpie and several different paints trying to get the right effect before I ended up with these results.
I plan to put a soap dish or something between the faucets because it looks worse and worse the more
I try to fix it.
Now wouldn't you take them for granite?
|Here is what the original finished looked like|
|I loved the finish before I added the chrome finish on the sink|
|That white just didn't work with the granite|
|Yuk! Maybe I will wait till it dries and sand it again then add a better coat|

|Another before and after view. The granite color is more accurate in the above photos|
|This is the final paint I used for the sink. Don't ask. The label is missing lol|
