This is it! This is what I want... epoxy to cover existing countertops. In addition to this website Home Depot has kits in a variety of colors. Love the look, durability, and especially the price. Plus we won't end up ripping out our existing countertops just because the have a little wear and tear. Perfect, perfect, perfect option!
Resurfaced old laminate countertops with Epoxy and metallic paint from www.countertopepoxy.com. $300 for my whole kitchen. They look amazing! Copper with patina accents. DIY!! If I can do it, anyone can.
