Best DIY Marble Countertop TIPS
hey guys went ahead and welcome back to windows world so in today's video I'm gonna show you guys some things that I've done to transform my small kitchen so if you're interested in knowing what I'm doing then keep watching alright first things first I needed to lighten things up in my kitchen because it is very dark in certain places so I'm going to go with those trusty motion sensor lights that I keep talking about all you do is just stick it right up there and voila you have a motion sensor light underneath your cabinets and I also added the lights inside of my pantry because it is very dark in there and if you guys haven't seen my pantry makeover video I will link that in the description box down below well this was the last piece that I needed for this pantry once I added the lights it just looks so good next to the glass and when I go in there to grab something the lights automatically come on and it's just super convenient next I am tackling my florist guys please don't judge me but you know what if you do I kind of deserve it because when I moved in the crowd lines would like not white they were all equally dark and I just assumed that that's how they look but no that was dark guys so I took a bottle of the works you can get that from the Dollar Tree and I have a grout brush I have two actually a handheld one and I also purchased a really big grout brush from Target it's really really nice you don't have to get on your...
hands and knees but just a little bit of the works and a little bit of elbow grease and my floors look like new it's actually scary how much dirt was on the floor between my grout lines okay guys now the next project I'm super excited about because I have been wanting to upgrade these dusty dusty
countertops for quite some time and I found this contact paper on Amazon that I have used before but I found it in a
countertopsize the actual dimensions are 4 feet by 6.5 feet and so there's no cutting and pasting in the middle of the you know
countertopthe entire sheet covers the
countertops so this particular contact paper was $44 so I started off by cleaning the
countertops with my alcohol and once everything dried I measured everything out and what I liked about the contact paper is that there's lines on the back so you can cut it very neatly so just started cutting everything out and lining everything up and once I got my layout of how I wanted everything to look I peeled back maybe 2 to 3 inches at a time and then I started to stick it down to the counter top so the nice thing about this contact paper is that it is very reusable so if you stick it down in the wrong place you just literally pull it back up and try it again but I find that if you do the right measuring up front then you don't run into any problems and don't pull off too much of the backing at once because that's how you get the air bubbles so I'm using my smoother that I...
purchased and I use the smoother in my wallpaper video if you guys haven't got a chance to see how my textured faux white brick wallpaper came out from Target then I'll link that video in the description box below also so the scraper is also good for lining up against the sink that you're gonna come in contact with and you just line it up and you use your utility knife to kind of cut around it to give it that seamless look and I actually went back in with some silicone caulk just to make everything look they that much better all right so I ran out of the contact paper and yesterday it came in so I'm going to finish this install so I'm gonna finish up by putting it on the top portion of the
