Mine is all hand painted. Wood paint can be tricky if you are not experience enough. You have to dilute to avoid streak lines. Normal paint use for wall with a roller will be more easier. Take a look at the result using normal paint.
From my previous post on the toilet louvre windows. Since application for top hung is rejected and not wanting to waste time. A Diy paint job and replacement of new glass panel. Save a few hundred bucks and looks brand new.
I did not notice the color I chosen fall under grey. Think I will just live with it for a couple of years and maybe a change later when I get bored with it. So, what have you chosen as your countertop?
