The other day I decided that I was done with black faux granite laminate counters. I want a bright, happy kitchen. I had it painted white last year which helped. Photo.
And I got a couple of doors painted pink which also helped. Photo. But it's still dark from those counters and awful oak cabinets.
I'd like them to look more marble than granite but I doubt that will happen. I bought a Giani Counter Kit and I'll be sure to post the finished product (if tts passable.) I like the irony of painted laminate, especially if it fools people. I also took a paintbrush and white primer to the faux Tuscan backsplash but quickly realized I could tile over it rather than just paint it. The quest for colorful tiles has begun and believe me they are few and far between, unless you go, as I think I will, to New Jersey. World of Tile is apparently where Tilophiles go to get their groove on, especially if they want something that is not earth toned. Faux Tuscan is to Rhode Island as cigars are to Cuba so I'm up against a lot here.
