Faux Painted Countertops!!

I watch a lot of those DIY and HGTV shows. Some more than others. I can't quite get into the ones that tell me I need to put in pricey granite counter tops or else my kitchen will look "dated"...or the ones that make over one room in a house and have a $60, 000 dollar budget! Sure, they are great for inspiration at times, but in my world, not at all realistic.

Now for me, Myles of Style, Design on a Dime, Look What I Did....those actually have ideas I can implement on a Budget! Oh, and I can't forget Colorspash! I don't think I've seen anything David has done yet that I didn't love! Probably because of his use of deep rich colors! My favorites by far. Keep the pastels away from me!

Anywho...
Since my house seems to be in a constant state of change...budget friendly ideas are what I need to see. My mom suggested a few weeks ago that I log onto the "Rate My Space" site. I did. WOW! Sooooooo many ideas...and tips...and instructions....all in one place! It was like I was in DIY heaven!

My kitchen counter tops are in need of some love...so, I'd like to share what I found there on budget makeovers for counter tops.

FAUX PAINTING!!! Yes, that's right! You can faux paint your counter tops! Marble, granite...you name it...all those high end looks for pocket change!

I'm not quite ready to start on mine yet...but when I do I will be sure to post pictures. I have so many irons in the fire...I don't dare start another project before finishing the ones I have underway now.

Check these out...some of my inspiration for fauxing countertops!
