I listen to At Home with Gary Sullivan most Saturday mornings. He is a complete encyclopedia of home fix-up stuff and I'm always learning something new.
I heard him mention Daich Countertop Refinishing Kits a few weeks ago and did some investigating. I've looked at other resurfacing kits for countertops and the procedure was time-consuming with less than spectacular results. Many of the reviews for the Rustoleum product were pretty bad, not to mention the rather hefty over $200.00 pricetag. The Daich kit sells for about $125.00 and covers more square footage.
We are "blessed" with some butt-ugly kitchen counters in blue laminate. I was considering just slapping down another layer of nicer laminate, but I like this idea better because I won't have to lift the sink (I hate messing with plumbing.) The company also makes all sorts of cool stuff for walls, patios, and garage floors.
I trust Gary and if he says this stuff is great, well - then it is. I'm checking it out today after the Kootenai County Reagan Republican meeting today.
The rules while I'm gone:
Play nice, use your indoor voices, keep the sand in the sandbox, and return all toys.
Randy is back from a well earned vacation. While he was gone I washed and waxed his favorite truck. I've already had to give a truck to Odie for some imagined slight. Anything to keep these two from wrangling in the combox over the toys. BTW - Odie received an interesting letter from his electric company.
