How to get the look of marble countertops for cheap!

I have always wanted marble counter tops, but didn't think they would ever be in my budget, until now!  You see, I saw an ad in a magazine for Rust-Oleum countertop transformations.  (A do it yourself kit to actually PAINT your counter to look like stone).  Interested, I checked out the website.  I was disappointed to see a limited selection of faux finishes, and no marble ones.

So I did my own search for faux marble, and found that Home Depot sells Formica 180fx Calacatta Marble laminate countertops !  I think they are only $16 per square foot.  Much cheaper than real marble counters!

The following photos by Formica show just how it looks!  (Click to enlarge)



Looks just like the real thing to me!  Would you do it?


  1. I've seen this & I'm really impressed by how well they have done the veining. I'm wondering if they could do a rounded edge to make it look even more like a solid surface.
