Painted Paper Countertops from the Rescue and Resurface company represent a unique project in the kitchen renovation market. Remarkably durable, this unique product allows consumers to transform their kitchens at a fraction of the cost of granite or quartz and also offers opportunities for decorative finishers to make a lucrative income.

“We spent quite a bit of time working to develop a system of not just the paper but the basecoat, adhesive and the topcoat so that it would all interact together to create the ultimate durability,” reports Kelly S. King, president of Rescue and Resurface. “People who have seen us demonstrate the product are in total awe.”

Replicating the look of stone or marble at just one-tenth the cost of the real thing, this is a product that is well-suited for the DIY market but also presents an opportunity for decorative finishers on a couple different levels—No. 1, as installers and No. 2 as trainers/resellers.

Painted Paper Countertops come in two collections featuring the hottest trending colors in the kitchen industry. The Marble & Stone collection comes in a total of 13 colors, while Metal and Metallics is offered in 12 colors. In addition to transforming countertops, the product also can be used for backsplashes, tabletops, bar tops, furniture pieces and other surfaces.

Using the patent-pending Painted Paper Countertops system, torn pieces of the hand-painted paper are applied in a random, slightly overlapping pattern to create a beautiful stone-like appearance. “With Painted Paper Countertops, you have the ability to take an ugly, outdated laminate countertop and turn it into something beautiful,” King explains. “It has the appearance of granite or stone but with a unique look all its own.”

How far decorative finishers go with Painted Paper Countertops depends entirely on their own commitment, hard work and marketing savvy. However, King sees the opportunity for many to excel with this product. “The potential is there to create a one-person, six-figure income business,” he says.
