DIY Marble Counter top

So this is my "lovely" island in the center of my studio.  It has had this counter top for years and I just have always wanted to change it out.  So, I took to doing some research on how to paint laminate counter tops.  I found out it is super easy to do!

I first sanded the counter top and then put two coats of primer on top.  I usually wait an hour between each coat.  Once the primer is dry I used Rustoleum white semi-gloss paint over the top, two coats.

It's a three step process.
Once it's all dry I added two coats of a satin polycrylic.

Here is what it looks like all finished, I have to say I love how it turned out!

Brightened up the room tremendously!
