Giani Granite Paint Kit Review

I was given the opportunity to review the Giani Granite Paint Kit from Giani Granite. I have to say when I first saw this product I was somewhat skeptical about how the results would come out. The Giani Granite Paint Kit for Countertops transforms your regular wood, laminate or ceramic tile countertops into beautiful faux granite creations. I saw the pictures and they looked great, but I wasn't sure I would be able to recreate that look myself. But boy was I surprised when I was able to transform a table in my apartment into something that looked so much like the pictures and with such an ease.

I started with an end table because I wanted to test the results before taking on a larger project. The kit contains everything you'll need to complete the entire project.

You start by cleaning the surface of the item you're going to transform. No sanding required! Just clean it with a scouring pad and rise thoroughly with water.

After you clean the surface, you paint on a layer of the primer. The kit includes the rollers you'll need and all of the paint cans are clearly numbered with what step they are.

After you wait for the primer to dry (which was so hard to do because I am terribly impatient) you then get to the fun part. You take the included sponge and layer on the colored minerals to get an amazing granite look. As you layer them you'll see the transformation taking place. You can keep layering colors until you get the look you want. Once that dries you then apply two coats of top coat and you're ready to go!

Sorry my pictures are a little blurry but you get the idea! Such a simple transformation. The whole kit is simple and comes with detailed instructions on how to use the product on your surfaces and how to care for it. 

Overall, I would give this product an A. The process was simple and the results were gorgeous. This totally transformed my table for my bathroom and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. You do not have to be crafty or artistic for this product to work for you (and I can speak from experience -- I would not consider myself to be the "artistic" type).
