Smile Countertop HELP!!

I have looked at many different options for replacing my existing Formica countertops. I like granite (who doesn't) but I plan to sell soon and would like a less expensive alternative. I have looked at a new product called Weathered Stone that claims to go over existing countertops without having to remove them. Has any one used it? They are at weathered-stone.com. Any ideas if this will work?

There are a number of things that can be applied to an existing countertop, including new formica(assuming your top is not the post formed type-curved at the edge). If the old top is sound, there is often rot around the sink area, it might support a thin layer of natural or man made stone. One problem is that the top is already 1 1/2" thick, so anything added to the top, also adds to the thickness, which will look odd.

If that old top is looking tired, a new top may make the difference in sale or no sale, and at a better price.
