Sherry Jacobson and Rania Abdulla are true Daich Coatings “Weekend Warriors.” They each used our SpreadStone Mineral Select Countertop Refinishing Kit to transform part of their homes in just one weekend.

            For Sherry, the change came in her kitchen. But for Rania, her project was tackling a dining room table top!

Sherry’s Kitchen

            Although her countertops were installed in 2018, Sherry Jacobson never liked them. In fact, she hated the brown color that they chose. At the time it matched her home interior. But, over the last few years, Sherry’s house has undergone some transformations. Like many people, she’s moved to a rustic farmhouse look with a focus more on gray tones.

            “I took a leap of faith and purchased the Daich Coatings countertop kit on The Home Depot website,” says Sherry, a resident of Janesville, Wisc. “I chose the Onyx Fog color to brighten up the kitchen and complement the gray tones we now have throughout our house.”

            Since Sherry and her family were “sheltering in place” during the COVID-19 restrictions, she decided to jump right into the project.

            “I started the countertop project late Friday evening and it was fully completed by Sunday!” says Sherry. “On a scale of 1 to 10, this was so easy it’s a 1. If you know how to use a paint brush and a roller, and can sand and follow instructions, this becomes an unbelievably easy experience.

            “I completed this project all by myself. And I’m proud of making this transformation take place in our kitchen!”

Rania’s Dining Room Table

            Rania Abdulla is into “upcycling” — using reclaimed items and making them work better for her home. As a blogger, she’s had lots of experience in this category. However, she’d never worked with our Daich Coatings products before.

            While she originally wanted to apply the real stone coating to her bathroom countertop, inspiration struck. She needed to solve a dilemma on how to get a new upscale look for her old dining room tabletop. That’s when Rania made the decision to give our Natural White coating a try.

            “My 13-year-old IKEA table that was pretty beat up,” says Rania. “This table had been ‘transformed’ several times over the years and was ready for upcycling.”

            Following all the instructions provided with the kit, she and her husband created an online blog tutorial of the transformation. The project proved easy, and the new tabletop gleams in their dining room.

The Canadian blogger now has the table she dreamed of, and can count herself as a “Weekend Warrior” with our Daich Coatings kit!
