My parents’ bathroom desperately needed a makeover. The worst part of the bathroom was the laminate vanity. It was hideous!
I had seen concrete coated counters online that use what’s called a feather finish. Feather finish is basically a generic term in the concrete world that simply refers to the application of a very thin coat of concrete. The product I had seen used did the job, but the issue was that since the product was made to be applied as a feather thin layer, it required four or five layers to get good coverage AND each layer had to be sanded before applying the next layer. Ugh! That just seemed like way too much work to me for something that could be really easy. I’ve done quite a bit of work with concrete lately, so I felt completely comfortable trying something similar with my concrete of choice, Rapid Set Cement All. The difference is that by using Cement All only one coat is required and it does NOT need to be sanded. …Ah, now that’s the easy way to do a concrete overlay!
