When it comes to fixing up a kitchen, granite countertops are on the top of most homeowners’ lists. Granite is a natural stone that offers beauty, style, and clean, modern elegance, but it also comes with a big price tag. This is why many homeowners are turning to DIY methods that create gorgeous faux granite effects using their original counters.
DIY creatives have found inexpensive painting techniques and faux granite overlays to make their worn out laminate, solid surface, tile, and even wood countertops look like stunning granite.
