Our kitchen counter tops are nasty. Small tile with baby blue and white checkers. It's ugly, dirty, and I would like to find something to temporarily make it look better. Is there anything I can spray over it to cover it up. Something texturized? Something to cover it all up with out making cuts on a new one? We are re-doing the entire kichen in 2005 but I need a temp fix now. Thanks

Hi Jabbie,

Been there done that... haha

But my issue was in a rented house at the time, but this is what I did.

I had tiles "UGLY NASTY ONES" in the bathroom around the top part of the tub and at the top wall above the shower head.

I brush painted on(2coats)of paint to match the other improvements made and then applied a clear coat (about 3 times) and it worked wonderfully till we were able to buy our own house...

And OMG @ the fix it upper... But I love this type of thing... :D

Good luck!
