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 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.
