But, if you were to come closer, you would see the pink countertop showing through in some small areas that are scratched:
And here are a few more examples to show you what you may see on yours:
Am I upset about this? H-no. The paint cost me $20! Really, I still have more than half of the quart left and if it was really bothering me, I could just repaint the countertops. But, in reality, we never meant for these painted countertops to be a permanent fix for our previous pink ones. The plan was always to replace the countertops (and the whole kitchen) in a year or so.
Would I still recommend painting your countertops? To everyone that has sent me pictures of your robin’s egg blue counters, or mustard, or pink–and you hate them–Yes, yes and yes. If you really don’t like the color of your countertops and can’t afford to replace them right now–why not take an hour and change the color? But, and this is a big but, don’t expect painted countertops to be your forever-countertop. Look at it as a means to an end. An opportunity to still aesthetically enjoy your space while you save up for a replacement.
That’s my round-up on how-things-look-five-months-later. We are currently picking out new countertops for our NEW kitchen plans. And you better believe they aren’t going to be pink or painted. That’s about as much as we know right now.
