Article on updating your table

Anyone recognize the trailer in the first image in this article?

Yep, an Escape. And it belongs to a forum member. Cool!

(Don't know if this has already been posted as I haven't been on the forum much lately. Nor are the articles dated, so heck if I know when it came out.)

Wow that is one nice trailer in that photo. I would wag my tail if I had one.

This is a mod that I have done on 3 trailers and one condo kitchen now. It is Liquid Granite countertops and is a 5 step paint process that goes right over laminate. This thread walking through the process is my previous 17b

Even if you use the same kit, no two counters will come out the same. It is also extremely durable.
Here are a couple of pics of the kitchen counters reno'd with this process.

Hey Pat,
Not only has it been out there in 3 trailers for some time, but the Condo countertops are in service for over a year now in a Vacation Rental we have in Pinetop, AZ. I was just up there for a maintenance trip and the countertops are still gorgeous after a year of rental abuse.
About every 18 months for maintenance I just roller one or two coats of polyurethane. Takes about 15min and 24 hrs to completely dry for use.

So recoating almost like taking care of wood floors ? Is the surface smooth like the laminate ? I noticed you removed counters . I don't want to get into that . Can't I just do in trailer . I know covering and cleanup . Pat

You can tape it off and do it in place. Doing that right now on Scamp 19. The Primer and the minerals which are applied with sea sponge, makes really nice texture.

Greg when you say texture not like the laminate , smooth ? The table and shelf's are all done the way we like with new laminate . But I didn't change the kitchen counter . Why I am asking because of water and cooking ? don't want the surface to hold any water or germs . Do you have any pictures of trailer or trailers ? If you do when you get a chance e-mail pictures . If you are busy don't be in a rush . Take care of what you are doing first. I still need to figure the water pump tank yet . Pat

Let your buddies do the tail wagging. Otherwise you'd look kind of silly trying.

I found it interesting they used that photo but didn't reference anything about it in the article.

Did you know they had snagged your photo for that article?

I did not. But they did that attribution thing and included a link to my post so I'm happy. Any press is good press?
