Since we moved in to our home in 2006 we have made many changes and upgrades to make our house a home for our family. However, one thing has remained the same…the hideous pepto pink counter tops in our kitchen, thank you 1987 for that special gift!
A few months back I was visiting a wonderful friends blog Homemade Mom! She was doing a review on something I had never heard of “Giani Granite“. I went to their website, for first look I was so excited! Giani Granite is EXCATLY what I had been searching for and the price was right!!!
For $49.50 you can buy Giani Granite Paint for Counter tops! One kit will cover approximately 35 square feet of countertop space. For our Kitchen we need 2 kits. When I first opened the package, I was a little uncertain that the small cans would be enough to cover my counter tops, but the directions assured me that it would be more than enough. There are and number of different kits/colors that you can purchase. I decided on the Chocolate Brown. That kit came with:
– 6 Oz. of Brown Feldspar Mineral
– 6 Oz. of Inca Gold Mineral
– 6 Oz. of Chocolate Brown Mineral
– 16 Oz. of Automotive Polyurethane Topcoat
– 6″ GIANITM roller arm and two roller pads
– 4″ GIANITM granite paint sponge
– 2″ Foam Brush
– Black Practice Poster Board
– ‘Paint-by-Number’ DVD for beginners
– Illustrated Instructions
BEFORE and AFTER…I just couldn’t wait until the end of the review!!!
Do you see the AMAZING difference??? I was totally shocked when I looked at the before and after photos!!!
Giani Granite boosts 100% Satisfaction Guarantee! I am here to say that My husband and I are 100% Satisfied!
|Now with the brown! Beautiful!|
How About a few more photos…I love my “NEW” kitchen!!!!
You might be thinking “It’s paint, not actual rock or granite, so how strong could it really be?” Well I have the answer!
How Durable is GIANI?
The GIANI polymers are automotive grade resins that are used in the manufacture of car bumpers, so your countertop is extremely durable. Like most new water-based resin technologies, the cure time for GIANI is approximately two weeks to achieve its full hardness. So even though you may use your counters in forty-eight hours, don’t aggressively scrub on them for two weeks.
Yes, just like granite and Formica -its not recommended for cutting or chopping. The difference – is – if ever necessary – you can renew GIANI quickly and easily.
It can if strong contaminates are allowed to set for a long period.
As long as any conventional countertop.
No, unlike mined granite, GIANI will not fingerprint because the clear resin surrounds the minerals.
Yes, GIANI is heat resistant up to 250F. As with Formica – it is not designed for pots or pans directly from ovens or ranges.
6) Can it be used outside?
Yes, GIANI is an automotive grade resin so it performs well outside. Note, GIANI is not designed for surfaces that will be submerged in water.
