Hi guys This is Marandah back with you to show you how to make your countertop look like granite I posted a video a while back and um the kitchen looks completely different the countertops or Grant obviously but the Cabinet’s have been painted and We have got a brand new refrigerator um I looked at this the other [day], and I’ve got a few questions here it’s on Asking me what did I use and could I Demonstrate that again absolutely, I have two SINK COVERS and you can see The gloss on the countertops. It’s very very pretty very hi gloss I absolutely love it our next step is getting faucets put in and I’ll try to get to everyone’s questions But I think that you can look around and see it looks a nice let me show you what this look like the before this Was the countertop before the project and this only took one night Guess how much it costs? $25 $25 so let’s jump right into that You’re going to need a couple of rollers you’re going to there’s NO sanding There’s no sanding, and I’m telling you guys. This this is some nice GLOSS I mean It’s really good um you gonna need a couple of rollers because you’re going to do the primer the kilts make sure you Get the oil Base that’s going to be your difference maker [alright] and then polyurethane clear Gloss and You can choose whatever colors. This is I’ve had this question of From several people use whatever color you want for your kitchen um when I’ve got the the white base down, and then I done my Primary Color which was black. I was like. I love it. I love it I’m going to keep on because I got these other colors The reason I got white acrylic paint because in case I messed up. I could go back and fix it, but you pick out the colors that you want now. I just earth tone to answer your questions exactly um This is classic caramel This is Real [Brown] this one’s white and This one is black. I Think I’m missing a color, but if I am not a very big deal Because we’re just going to do the SINK COVERS all right so check this out You’re going to need scissors And I thought I had some laying out I’ll grab these They have these sponges at hobby Lobby They’re like $30. Don’t do that Okay, I went to the dollar store. Just got some dollar sponges and that’s what I done and actually when I done this one, I done the square one, the other thing that you’re going to need You’re gonna need a couple [of] [these] You’re going to need oh dobbers These they have these in the kids section instead of getting the wooden ones This is like a big pack so like if you want to do your kitchen right now [and] your bathroom later You could just throw these away like it was two dollars in something And I’m talking they had all kinds of shapes and sizes I love this because you can really get around the corners with it, and I’ll get to that But what I want to really go [over] is the sponges? so the artist sponges I noticed they were very unique and I took art so I know that When you’re painting things like this What you want is your very unique? Pattern …. just anyway get the cutting on em. There’s no right or wrong way to do this and It just turns up so beautiful, but yeah, just just bend it and cut it and jab it and just Do a couple sponges like that however [many] colors you [have] what I done is I cut mine in half And then you can really utilize this space and [here] we go. I am ready for some dip right there and This I’m doing the Sink Covers. I don’t know exactly how much primer is Is in here I’m hoping there’s enough to shoot this entire video I really really do Back to the project woman joking around happens all the time and I’m just going to Get it on here, and this is this is the part where if you really Really gotta use the sleek roller you get out of the smooth surface sponge You will not have to do the sanding I’m gonna make sure I don’t have anything on [there] with the smooth Surface Roller and you can’t mess it up unless you’re like really like trying to Like accidentally maybe if you apply too much pressure Because then you’ll have lines So just go back that were to happen and? If that were to happene this right here is already looking Very pretty. I I like it. You know I I’ll Take some of that off still want to go around it because I know I’m coming back over it with the brown now I’m going to kind of dab it like this. This is up to you It’s your style, but this is what I’ve done to kind of like really beat in the colors together, so You can see the sharp black popping out And then you can see the gray peeping through I’m going to say that part right there, That’s okay I knew that was going to happen so I don’t want you guys when you start doing it to freak out Go, oh no, it’s not making a pattern. There’s no specific pattern in any of this alright, so now onto the second piece … Okay so once you get your oil base Primer down, it’s all fine from there We’re coming back to what I was talking to earlier was going back to your black at the end You can [see] it coming through I’ve done this side already [but] that’s part of the color is the black so I’m going to go [ahead] and do the same thing with this one, and you can kind of see how it develops It’s on take a few seconds here If you want you to start out light … It’s looking better and better every single [dob] that what I done with the two earth tone brown colors I had is I just kept patting them down until There wasn’t much white hardly at all popping out I have a Little extra over there, so I’m gonna add some over here To Make it even …. because there’s no true Marble, there’s no Marble that’s an exact Pattern that’s real granite or real marble So you can keep that in mind, so it’s your own unique project so I’m going to go ahead and Touch the Edges, and then we’ll get right back to you with the polyurethane, the last step I know when we put the oil base kilz down we were really quick to go [ahead] with the acrylic. That part is okay to do. It dries FAST however when you get to the polyurethane step Be sure to let it completely dry before you start putting polyurethane putting polyurethane on there, so we’ll be back again You can see guys these Sink Covers Has one really two thick coats of Polyurethane this one doesn’t we’re fixing to apply that now and again the same [thing] with the Primer I’m using everything Disposable something you should know is this Really really drinks a lot of polyurethane So you’re going to be dipping and going back to it very very often? And it’s not the same color. We did talk and figure out. We are missing a color That it’s it’s close enough Just smooth it out You see getting it’s gloss there And I like I like both of them , you know we had picked a very light Tan Beige looking and we just cannot find it, so Unfortunately, they’re not going to match completely identical, but that’s okay and you just want to let the roller Roller don’t worry about applying I know it when you’re first doing it you you can see streaks or air bubbles. Don’t worry about that because when it sits it goes away You can see that the final one on the one that we’re actually doing this one on top of and this one was done the [exact] same way, but Wouldn’t hurt to have another coating Sink covers
