This DIY technique can be done in no time—and it’s way more affordable than a renovation.
If you can’t stand your dated laminate countertops but a renovation isn’t in the cards, this trick could tide you over until you’re ready for a remodel. The secret: Instant Granite, adhesive-backed vinyl sheets that secure onto your outdated counters like a giant sticker. Adhering the vinyl takes a bit of patience (you’ll want to smooth out every air bubble as you apply it), but the amazing makeover is worth the effort. Once you attach the stick-on sheet and caulk around the rim of the sink, your laminate countertop will magically transform into gorgeous marble. Not bad for a $40 fix!
