Giani Countertop Granite Paint Review & Giveaway! 6/30 midnight


Giani… Italian Granite Paint
Bringing Timeless Beauty to Your Home



Giani Granite is having a blogger blast! Lucky me I get to participate! I picked the Chocolate Brown kit! I am not going to bore you with a long drawn out review, you likely won't read anyway. But I will go over some basic facts.

Fact #1 - My counter-tops looked OH SO ugly, (see for yourself below!) and now they look awesome!

Fact #2 - You don't have to be an amazing DIY geek to do it, although your would probably look more professional. It is not required.

Fact #3 - Almost everything you need is in the kit, PLUS a instructional DVD.

Fact #4 - It is mineral paint, and minus the topcoat has NO smell that lingers and permeate in your house. The seal topcoat has a faint smell and it is not strong and you can barely smell it.

Fact #5 - The kit costs 70$ and covers 35 sq feet. Shipping is around 10$!

Fact #6 - The pattern is VERY customizable, almost all the kits have many many different looks to the one kit.

Fact #7 - Giani Granite is available for purchase in some stores, and also directly from the manufacturer and they ship very quickly!

Fact #8 - Allows you to switch up the look of your room with minimum labor and overhead cost!

Fact #9 - It takes several days to finish this project, no need to rush. The drying time for the final coat is 72 hours and 4 and 8 hours for the coats before.

Fact #10 - You will need: A paint tray, painters tape, a pencil, plastic or paper to cover your cabinets, stove, dishwasher etc ect.

I am in desperate need of a counter top makeover. My white counter tops show and absorb all the dirt. They are awful, and very old fashioned. If I were to win, I would choose Sicilian Sand. It's still light, but so fabulous looking!
