    I so want to try this. I have been looking at yellow marble formica for 18 years and want a change. My cabinets are dingy 70's style and will be painted this year. I am hoping that my trip to the Restore (sponsored by Habitat for Humanity) will have doors that will fit the cabinets I currently have.

    I want a kitchen makeover so bad!

    One way to really spruce up old doors is to sand them down, refinish the edge of the door and paint the door panel a color that matches your kitchen. My mom did this one year in a house we lived in and the kitchen looked gorgeous afterwards. She used a hunter green and painted some "ivy" along the corners as well. It was a little time consuming, but fairly inexpensive to do.

    What nice pictures. I just finished updating my kitchen...it had been 10 years. Unfortunately all we could afford was paint, but it looks wonderful and I made some new curtains as well. Our update cost about $150, but it was worth a million to me

    This looks really cool. The picture of the kit isn't very big. Could you give me more details, and where can you buy it? Would love to check into this as we still have the 1960's/70's looking countertop that is white with silver sparkles through it!

    My husband is very interested in this. We've always wanted to update our ugly contertops and this product would be great for us. Thank you for the idea.

    OMGoodness! I have this countertop kit sitting (and collecting dust) in my garage. I actually got it for free about a year (maybe 2) ago. Your results are fantastic... Ive really (REALLY) got to do this to my countertops

    We want to update our counter tops in the kitchen. Currently we have 70's avocado and white rippled ceramic tile. The grout traps water and the counters aren't level so water pools when it is washed down. I tried to find this product locally and found that it had been clearanced out - I was heart-broken.

    We are now looking at sheet formica. Can you share how you installed and finished the wood edge on your counter?

    Your kitchen is beautiful, thanks for sharing. - Jane

    The product is available online on Amazon for the same price, plus free shipping with prime.

    Thank you! We just trimmed the counters out with some leftover boards we had in the garage, we just stained them & cut them to fit. You put a little wood glue on the backside, attach with finish nails.
