DIY Countertop Projects


From the days when I first started ‘The Budget Decorator‘, I have been a fan of using paint where no man (or woman) has taken it before. Dawn from ‘Designing Dawn’ has transformed her kitchen into something really chic with these DIY glossy painted counters! I love the soft gray she chose too, gave it a modern vibe without being cold. Plus, she tells you about a product to seal it with that is supposed to be food safe. I. Am. Tempted.


DIY Countertop Projects


I love industrial style in the kitchen, so these DIY concrete counters are an amazing project. They are also laid right over existing, old ceramic tile. Love the idea of not having to demolish or remove anything. From ‘Design Stocker’.



‘DIY Network’ has a totally different take on their technique for installing a concrete countertop… Step by step instructions.



Merrilee from ‘Lilliedale’ has a tutorial for these DIY copper countertops that looks like such a daunting project… but she makes it look totally doable! And wow! These are not boring builder countertops!



From ‘Chris Loves Julia’, read how they installed their black walnut craft art countertops… These are so pretty, I can’t even imagine the feel that they give their kitchen… I love natural things like wood and stone.



Finally, learn how to install butcher block countertops by ‘This and That’… long post, but it’s because there is such great info and lots of photos.
