    Anybody have any opinions on this stuff? Durability? Ease of install?

    My only real concern about install would be if it was self-leveling or not.

    It looks like a very well designed ad campaign.

    I was slightly interested in the counter top stuff until I saw the "speckle spreader". This product has no use outside of a trailer or modular home.

    $200 worth of crap you gotta let dry for 48 hrs after jacking with it vs $300-600 in countertops that are once and done in a few hours. If you lie this product you might like Durhams water putty as well.

    Do you have post formed counters or flat work counters?

    I don't have a lot of counter top
    in my kitchen so I'd just replace them.
    That's way too involved for me.
    Looks too much like work and
    I really hate prep and paint work.

    My wife was making plans for new countertops in our new house before we even moved in. She hates what is in here. They are 2" tiles, and needless to say there is a TON of grout to try and keep clean.

    The new ones will be soapstone, just like our old house. Not cheap, but very nice looking and more durablethan anything else.

    I tried it on the cabinets. I didn't do the countertop.

    Prep is a mofo. They send you a DVD (same video online) on how to prep everything. There's no sanding, but you gotta stick to the instructions. We tried a short cut and wound up having to do a few doors over - the paint chipped (whassat?) right off.

    Hey, if you don't have a lot of money for new cabinets, this stuff is ok. Add some shiny hinges and handles, and you can see a noticeable difference.

    There's Nothing Wrong with that Kitchen

    Fuckin' Dipshits have to Improve on everything after they move in


    Get Ahold of yourselves

    That money is useful elsewhere

    I think the worst offenders was Trading Spaces on TLC... the stupidest thing I have ever saw was one of the "designers" covered the walls with silk flowers in the bathroom... ummm how the fuck are you supposed to keep that clean?

    How did you try to shortcut things? I sanded everything instead of using the deglosser. I don't think that'll hurt me any. I hope.

    This particular situation was for a rental. If this was for my home, I'd go with new granite/stone countertops and cabinets. It's not. It's for tenants who may well fuck everything up, and having a system that will let me repair those kind of damages instead of going out there and forking over for new granite countertops every time some asshole gets pissed off at his landlord makes a lot more sense.

    I've already done the cabinets and I'm in the middle of doing the countertops. I'll post some photos later, but so far it seems to be going quite well.

    I'll post some photos sooner or later, but the countertops look really good. The cabinets look decent, but the countertops look really, really good. The trick is the sanding after you put the chips (yes, I said "what's that" like a fucking star fucking dipshit every 2 minutes the entire time I was doing this project: I hate myself for that) on. You really have to have a light hand for that part. Going Mongo on it and just scrubbing away at it will give you bald spots in the material.

    But damn, it's shiny as fuck when you're done. If this stuff lasts, it's a pretty damn good deal.

    A buddy of mine from work just redid his bathtub this weekend with their epoxy paint product. I'll report how it came out once I hear from him.
