Give it a faux-marble appearance
On average, the cost of marble countertops can range from $2,000-$7,000 according to Fixr. If you’re seeking the marble look without the marble price, This Old House has a step-by-step guide on how to do it. It involves tools such as a sea sponge and a feather to make oil-based paint appear as if it’s an expensive piece of rock.
Just paint over it
Homeowners who would rather give their laminate counters a simple treatment can simply paint over them without any special designs being necessary. You’ll need to sand the surface beforehand and use countertop coating, which is a special product that can be purchased at your local home improvement store. Be sure to reach the nooks and crannies and allow enough time for each layer to dry.
