The kit we chose was the "Giani Marble Countertop Paint Kit Carrara White." We wanted white marble with gray detailing.

It came with paint, brushes and a spray water bottle.

We suggest having paper plates and paper towels on hand as well because, as all DIYers know, it could get a little messy.

This project is fairly easy with just three steps!

1. Apply the white base primer

2. Draw on the gray veins

3. Finish with a clear top coat

You Can Buy a Kit on Amazon to Give Your Countertops a Faux Marble Finish

When I picture my dream kitchen, I imagine stainless steel appliances, a KitchenAid stand mixer, copper pots, a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet, and expansive white marble countertops. Unfortunately, my budget apartment didn't exactly come with such furnishings, and neither do many houses. Old houses have great character, but even with updated appliances, eighties-style ceramic tiling or Formica countertops can singlehandedly date your kitchen. Not to mention that tile grout is difficult to clean and notorious for harboring dirt and bacteria.

In an ideal world, we'd all be able to renovate our homes to design our dream kitchens, stainless steel, white marble, and all. But while I could bring home a KitchenAid mixer and a cast iron skillet without much fuss, countertops pose a whole new challenge.

WATCH: Selecting Countertops

Redoing countertops requires a more elaborate kitchen renovation, which can be very costly and labor-intensive. Marble countertops can cost anywhere from $40 to $200 per square foot. With the average kitchen containing 35 square feet of counter space, the price tag of authentic marble countertops can be quite steep (even on the lower end, that's around $1,400). But now, in the age of Pinterest, you can completely transform your kitchen countertops with a simple DIY kit. And you can get it for less than $100.

You heard it here first, folks: Amazon is selling a Giani Marble Countertop Paint Kit that masterfully replicates the look of white marble on any surface, from granite to tile. The paint-on marble covers 35 square feet of counter space. The three-step application process is easy to follow and makes a great DIY weekend project. According to Giani, this kit "will transform Formica, laminate, Corian, ceramic tile, butcher block, cultured marble, and traditional granite in a single weekend." So how does it work?

"The specialized primer hides existing discoloration, burns, stains, and minor scratches, while the mineral paints create the look of natural marble," the brand notes on Amazon.

The kit includes marble primer, grey veining mineral, white highlight material, and marble protective topcoat. It also comes complete with painting materials and a practice board, so you can get the hang of it before starting on your countertops. A high-gloss top coat seals and protects the paint, so you'll be able to use your countertops as normal without extra worries of stains or spills. Plus, the high-shine finish replicates the look and feel of polished marble. Instantly upgrade your blasé countertops and avoid a costly renovation– your guests will never even guess that this marble is painted on!

Not convinced yet? Peruse the impressive number of five-star reviews, complete with before and after photos. This marble countertop paint kit will transform your drab, outdated countertops into a modern masterpiece at an affordable cost. What are you waiting for? Turn that dream kitchen into a reality.

Giani Marble Countertop Paint Kit


This week, we're testing the Giani Marble Countertop Paint Kit, which creates the look of "white limestone cut by thin, sinewy veins and plumes of grey quartz" found in Carrara marble. Per the brand, "The simplicity of color and pattern make it a luminous addition to any kitchen or bath."

The kit is definitely more labor-intensive than the granite version, which quickly becomes apparent given the longer list of included supplies: a primer, grey and white accent paints, three cans each of epoxy resin and activator, a roller arm and covers, detail brush, 2" bristle and sponge brushes, a textured paint sponge, misting bottle, and practice board. Unlike the granite kit, this one also provides sandpaper, gloves, stir sticks, and a dropcloth, which means the only other thing you'll need to buy is painter's tape, safety goggles and a paint tray for the primer.

Now on to the step-by-step. (The much more detailed instructions, which you'll want to read very closely before starting the project, can be found online.)

1. Prepare your surface with a thorough cleaning and light sanding. Use painter's tape to protect the wall and cabinets around the edges of your countertop.

Brad Holland

2. Roll on two thin coats of the primer, waiting four hours in between to dry. Let dry another four hours.

Brad Holland

3. Before you start painting on the veins, you'll want to do a few practice runs on the included foam board. (It's also a good idea to have a general idea of how you want the pattern to look; spend some time on Google Image Search to study the veins on a natural marble slab.) Once you're ready, use the small artist's brush to begin applying the Grey Veining Mineral, working in short sections.

Brad Holland

4. Using the included spray bottle, lightly mist the freshly painted section with water.

5. Use the dry bristle brush to dab and feather the vein, giving it a soft, diffused look.

6. When you're happy with the veining, use the sponge to dab the White Highlight Mineral on or around each vein. Let dry for four hours and lightly sand before applying the topcoat.

Brad Holland

7. Wearing safety goggles, mix the topcoat by pouring one can of Epoxy Activator into a can of Epoxy Resin, then stir for exactly three minutes and fifteen seconds. (Once activated, the epoxy can be used for approximately 30 minutes.) Pour the epoxy onto the counter surface. You'll be working in six-foot sections.

Brad Holland

8. Spread the epoxy over the countertop, using the bristle brush around the edges and backsplash and a roller for the center section. If you see any specks of lint or dust, use tweezers to remove them.

Brad Holland

9. Let dry. While the epoxy will be tack-free in six to eight hours, Giani recommends waiting at least 24 hours to use your dishwasher and two days before using the countertop. The full cure time is seven days; until then, don't use anything stronger than mild soap and water to clean your counter.

Brad Holland

And that's it! Enjoy your new faux-marble look.

Brad Holland

The verdict: While this kit was definitely a lot more work than the granite version—and does require some artistic skill beyond sponging on paint—we were shocked by how well it turned out. One colleague even told us that from across the room, it looked like real marble. We call that a win!
