 ORC International ‘Countertops in Australia’ February 2010
Wow, what a product! I thought this would be much more difficult to use but we ended up with a professional look and trust me, we are not normally the DIY type! The instructions were simple to follow and as long as you do follow them I think anyone would be able to get themselves a stylish new look.
This is a great product for anyone wanting to give their kitchen or bathroom a lift. It makes the room feel fresh and more up to date. Initially my husband and I were daunted when we opened the parcel to find that there were a number of stages that we had to go through to end up with the finish product and wondered if this was going to be all a bit hard.
It wasn't the instructions( book and DVD ) supplied were great and gave you clear instructions. The sanding before and between coats was easy. The product went on well and the end result was much better than expected with a very real looking stone finish, in a lovely gloss.
Downsides of the product
Would have loved the product to come in a white
Also would find it much easier if all the tape and paintbrushes and rollers were supplied.
In closing great product would highly recommend it.
