Faux Granite Painted Countertops Look Expensive – Perfect For Budget Kitchen Makeovers

CLEVELAND, OH – When it comes to home improvements, a kitchen makeover is usually at the top of the list. But replacing old, dull and outdated countertops doesn’t have to be expensive and time consuming. In fact, with a little imagination, not a lot of money and a weekend to spare, people can change and update the entire look of their kitchen with painted countertops.
Michaela Harbert, founder of Countertop Transfauxmations ®, created an easy, do-it-yourself countertop refinishing process that emphasizes durability and affordability and has proven safe and long lasting. Harbert’s original and specialized faux-finishing technique for kitchen countertops is available in a step-by-step demonstration DVD that shows how to perfectly replicate the look of granite, marble and stone, provides countless color options and can be done in a matter of hours by handy weekend warriors and painting novices alike.

“Homeowners, realtors and home stagers tell me that the Countertop Transfauxmations refinishing process is the best kept secret in home improvement,“ said Harbert. “For just a fraction of the cost of replacement counters, painted countertops not only look just like granite, they’re also food-safe, beautiful and durable – perfect for kitchen makeovers on a budget.”

The Countertop Transfauxmations DVD is available for $19.95 plus shipping and handling or $14.95 to download. It includes a 30-minute full-kitchen demonstration, a comprehensive written instruction booklet with color photos, current information on sealers and color combinations (Harbert’s “recipes” to achieve the perfect granite look), testimonials and before and after pictures.

Also included is a detailed shopping list of materials for refinishing an average-size (35 sq. ft.) kitchen counter. Costs for materials run about $80 available at any paint store.

With more than fifteen year’s experience in countertop refinishing, Harbert perfected and simplified the Countertop Transfauxmations process so that anyone can do countertop refinishing. The do-it-yourself DVD provides expert tips Harbert learned through trial and error, which make the difference between counters that look painted and, “Wow, you got new counters!”
