Can you paint cultured marble?

March 11, 2012 by momm7540
I received an e-mail earlier that I really didn’t have an answer for. I was hoping you guys , my readers, can help her out!
Hi there!
I came across your blog when searching for painted marble – GREAT job with your bathroom update!!! I have been wanting to try this in one of my bathrooms, too, and I was just wondering if your countertops were laminate or if they were cultured marble to begin with? 
I read the carrara painting tutorial on Gorgeous Shiny Things’ website, and her countertops also look great but they are laminate…I am thinking about doing this on cultured marble but I haven’t found any tutorials yet for this, and I don’t even know if it’s something that can be painted on. I’d love to hear what your countertop surface was when you get a free minute………thanks in advance so much for sharing your beautiful bathroom reno!!

I found a beautiful faux marble countertop tutorial on Gorgeous Shiny Things . I tried her method and it worked perfectly! However, I started with a laminate counter surface. 
Erin is looking to refinish her cultured marble countertops. 
What do you think? Do you have any suggestions for Erin?

    Use zinsser bullseye oil based primer -sticks to glossy surfaces and no sanding is required. You can then use latex or acrylic paints and if it is for a bathroom, I plan on sealing with verathane for floors since it will take the abuse.
