Decorating & Furniture/countertops

Question
I have an old kithen countertop which is orange.  This is a square top.  I was wanting to know if there is an inexpensive way to decorate this.

Answer
Hello,
There are products available that allows you to paint a texture onto certain materials.  Go to your local home improvement store and look in the paint section. Ask for advice on your application before purchasing a product.

Idea:  By adding texture and a contrast color atop your c-tops, it easily updates the original color.  Just make sure the product you use is safe, washable and durable for kitchen use.

Good Luck!
