I dream of marble countertops.
I dream of having them in my kitchen and bathrooms.
The dream is cut short when I realize two things:
1. The high maintenance that is required to keep marble counters pristine.
2. Their cost.
New countertops, particularly stone counters, are expensive.
Here are 9 DIY Countertop Makeovers that will be nice to your pocketbook.
