Size: 50 Square FeetColor: Desert Sand
We used this product (Desert Sand color) on our circa-1990s white Formica counters with wood trim. We had 39 sqft to cover; based on the reviews here, we opted to purchase two small (30 sqft) kits for $300 instead of the large (50 sqft) kit for $250 (we bought at Home Depot), since we were worried about having enough of the adhesive base coat. This turned out to be a great idea for two reasons: 1) we had plenty of the base coat, and 2) we had two sets of everything - sanding blocks, scrapers, etc., which saved lots of time since we could both be sanding and scraping simultaneously. In hindsight, I find it odd that Rust-Oleum stresses that this is a 2-person project, but they only give you enough supplies for one person to be working at a time.

Our only deviation from the instructions was that I used a 5" orbital sander with 60-grit sandpaper to rough up our old counters - this saved a ton of time. Other than that, I can't stress enough that you MUST follow the instructions to the letter if you want a good result. This is a project for Type A, meticulous people. :)

My observations after doing this project:

- I agree with previous reviewers who noted that they short you on adhesive base coat but give you WAY more chips than you'll need. You can dump half the chips on the floor (and you will, as you apply with the spreader) and still have plenty. I don't think the 50 sqft kit would have provided enough base for our 39 sqft of counters.
- The adhesive base coat dries quickly - if your counters are broken into multiple sections, do each one separately - first section base coat, apply chips; next section base coat, apply chips - etc.
- The wood trim on our counters had a beveled/ridged edge.

Size: 50 Square FeetColor: Desert Sand
Okay. People seem really happy with this product, or really dissatisfied. After reading all the reviews here, then using the product, here's my basic takeaway, along with some tips:

This product was easy to use, did exactly what it was supposed to, and beautifully covered up my 70's fake butcher block laminate. I followed the directions exactly, and had absolutely no problems achieving a great look in 2 1/2 days. Now, some helpful hints:

1. If you REALLY WANT granite or stone, DON'T buy this. You will never be happy with it, because deep down, you want something else. It's not stone. It looks like a very nice, shiny laminate, minus the seams on the edges, and I think it's easier than replacing laminate tops, and slightly cheaper.

2. The Desert Sand color is awesome. The Onyx color is apparently awful. Take a look at the satisfied customers and see which color they used. Now look at the Onyx reviews (see "road tar"). Basically, single color is a bad idea with this product. Also, if possible, try to stay within the same color scheme as your current tops. This will help with base coat coverage issues (obviously you can't do this if you have some awful green or pink laminate top). I went from fake wood to Desert Sand (similar in color), and it covered very easily.

3. You need two people for adhesive/chip application. Seriously.

4. If you're doing this in winter, as I did, the air in your house is dry. Use a humidifier to raise the humidity in the kitchen a day or two before applying the adhesive. This will give you more working time.

5. SEAMS: there's just one short blurb in the video about this, so I had to call Rustoleum for advice. I have a U-shaped kitchen with two mitre joints in the counter.

Reviews mentioning that Rustoleum refunded their purchase price if things went seriously wrong gave me the courage to go ahead and give this a try. First, the results in the end are nice. Time will tell regarding durability. This is at least a 2 person project, mostly because the adhesive base coat is tricky to work with. Humidity must be > 30% and < 70 %. Even then, you have to work fast to put it down, level it out and remove any streaking, then apply the decorative chips. This is very important as any obvious streaks from uneven coverage will show through in the final product. Having read prior reviews, I used a high intensity portable light to look over the base coat as I applied it to look for bleed through. Glad I did as areas were brought out for me to touch up that weren't apparent under what I thought was good lighting. As others have mentioned, there is not enough of the base coat provided - especially if you lay it on thick. The directions state to apply a thick layer like frosting a cake - they mean it! I covered 55 square feet and using a 50 and 30 square foot kit, barely had enough base coat. I had plenty of everything else from just the 50 square foot kit. If uncertain, I would get the extra kit, call Rustoleum for more base coat and see if you can complete it with one kit and then return the other if you have enough. I don't see how to fix it if you run out midstream so this is a major problem. Everything else went fine but you do have to take your time, especially on the sanding to get a good finish.

I'm pleased with the overall appearance after completed but would reinforce what others have said -> use lots of base coat and have extra on hand if at all possible.
