Countertop trim change



As to see in the picture the kitchen countertop trim is dark green. Now the back splash change out is no big deal. But the countertop is in perfect condition. My question is anyone know of a way to trim off trim color layer? or are we just going to live with it? I believe its Corelle.

I have done a little work with solid surface counter tops. The edging is glued in place with a real strong epoxy glue. The Corel will break before the glue. You may be able to remove countertop and cut off apron. I would recommend having a new top made to your likes.

I think you might be better off having a new counter top cut. All of the big box home improvement stores can order custom cut Corian or other solid-surface counter tops. It shouldn't be horribly expensive since you're not doing a sticks and bricks remodel. If you have a rig that can carry the weight, check out odds and ends at a stone countertop dealer. They often have pieces of granite, quartz, marble or other stone left over that should work in a limited surface area application.

You could do a tile glass or ceramic backsplash. I've also seen punched copper backsplashes that were pretty. Small quantities can be pretty cheap. We've also had good luck finding things at Habitat stores and the like.

Its Corian not Corelle. Must have had my wife's new pots and pan on my mind. I found three different paints what say it can be done. Worth a try.
