Painting a granite countertopPosted by ritter vonali at May 07. 2006
I'm looking into a condo with some very basic dark granite countertops in the kitchen. I'm not very fond of granite but I also don't want to spend the money to install what I really want (bulthaup). Would it be possible to paint them? I'd like to paint them a light gray color and seal it with something (polyurethane?) to prevent scratches. thanks

Bulthaup is just stainless. You could overlay stainless, but the edge details are troublesome. Painting granite is frankly crazy.

i figured someone would think i'm crazy. if it's not possible or if it will look like s$^%t then i'll try to sell it.

You really don't want to paint your granite.
Have you seen the ad for FXSheeting in Dwell? They have a brushed stainless flexible laminate...
You could sell the granite and put the FXsheeting over a cheap laminate counter top or plywood. That would get you closer the look you were after and be much more practical and livable.

I agree that painting granite is crazy. IMO, no granite is THAT ugly! Plus I think it would look like crap, IF you could get something to stick, that is. The FX is a great idea. I cna't think of a more durable substrate, plus the laminate could be removed if anyone ever wants the granite back.
