Pretty!  Love the outcome.  =)

Were the cement counter tops hard to do?  They're pretty and I'm guessing durable.

Thank you! 

I have a lot of experience with a trowel and with mixing various types of product, so they were not particularly difficult for me.  Good troweling technique takes practice and patience, but it not difficult once you understand how to manipulate material with the tool.  The manufacturer gives pretty good directions about the application, too.  The counter is not nearly as stain resistant as it should be and I think that's because I used the proprietary sealer rather than the one that was recommended when I took a workshop for using this product on counters a few years ago.  That sealer is called Nanotech.

Agreed. Those counter tops are amazing, and I was wondering how you managed to do marble cheaply.  Fantastic job!

Oh boy!  Thanks so much!  It feels like this was more than a year ago since I did this project, because so much has happened and I've been fiddling around with little house projects at the new place.
