If your bathroom is still sporting a circa 1970 countertop but you don’t have the budget to do a major overhaul right now, you can give it an update for a mere fraction of the cost of the cost of a replacement with Rust-Oleum Countertop Paint.
According to the official website, this product can be used on laminate countertops, as well as cabinets and furniture. The manufacturer has added HomeShield(TM) Antimicrobial Protection, which means you don’t need to worry about mold or mildew once the product has been applied.

Rust-Oleum is available in 16 colours. You would pick up a package at a hardware or home improvement store and have it tinted. The color range includes white, beige, browns, putty, blue, green, grey, and pewter tones, so you should be able to find one that coordinates with your flooring and fixtures. The best part is that you don’t need to use a primer first; just go ahead and apply the product.
The kicker is that you really need to plan ahead for this kind of project. The paint needs at least three days to dry before you will be able to use your bathroom countertop. One can of paint will cover approximately 25 linear feet.

You can get creative with the Rust-Oleum product if you want. Not everyone likes the solid color countertop they will get if they stick with the tinted product. Here is an example of the effect you will get by adding some oil-based craft paint on top. In this instance, it was applied with a section of a plastic grocery bag to achieve this marbled effect.
