Knee Deep in a Bathroom Restoration (Using Rustoleum Countertop Transformation)

When I get quiet on Coffee Talking you might think I'm enjoying life, sitting around sipping hot coffee and relaxing, right? Uh, no.  Life is so busy right now that I have to remind myself to stop and breathe but in the middle of it, what do I choose to do?  Embark on a little home improvement project.

I am currently smack-dab in the middle of a counter top project in the master bathroom.

  The previous owners had burnt the bathroom counter with a hair straightener.  The white counter was marred with 5 golden yellow burn strips.  It was during a trip to the hardware store I spied the kit for Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformations.  I debated whether I was up to the task, but in the end, $250 for a kit sure beat buying and installing new counter tops. 

I purchased it - and am right in the middle of the project this week.  Here is what I'm doing instead of relaxing on the deck with some coffee and enjoying the view;


IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING THIS PROJECT:  I spent too much money on the kit at the hardware store.  I found it much, much cheaper online at Amazon (link above) and when I found the link it also offered free shipping.  $207 at the time of this posting - much better than the $250 I spent with an additional 10% sales tax on top of that!!!).  

Will update later with finished project photos.
