Installation was a huge PITA: buyer beware that if you've downloaded one version of Peachtree to try, and then purchase an older version, it will continue to demand you register the new version, while not letting you use the one you bought. On the plus, a very nice person in tech support (who took an hour and a half of hold and misdirection to reach) fixed the problem....but watching him spend considerable time digging out all the pertinent programming, I'm inclined to say Peachtree downloads should come with a huge warning label.
I didn't think this product would live up to its hype, but I was sooooo tired of my circa 1964 kitchen's white with gold glitter Formica countertops, I gave it a try. I'm not good at painting so I hired my handyman/painter to apply the product. It covered the dated Formica brilliantly! The finished product is fabulous! ( One counter didn't look like the other two, due to putting more of one color on it than the others had -- but we were able to touch it up until it did match. So that was more of a problem stemming from us learning how much of which colors to use, than a flaw with the product itself. They give you a piece of cardboard to practice your painting technique on, but we skipped this step and probably shouldn't have.) Now that it's done, I am thrilled with the resulting faux granite! It looks so good, the handyman brought his wife over to see it -- they are kicking themselves that they didn't know about this stuff when they paid big bucks to install real granite countertop in their kitchen. They both said it looks like theirs. I can only tell you it looks wonderful. I can't believe I'm walking into the same kitchen, it has transformed the look of my room so much! Everyone who sees it, likes it a lot. It was easy for the handyman to apply: you just roll on a layer or two of black then dab the other colors on with sponges before applying 2 or 3 layers of top coat. To save time we used my (hair) blow dryer to make it dry faster. If you can paint a room, you can do this, and if you are in to arts and crafts, you would really be able to easily apply the stuff. My only criticism: The top coat material didn't make it shine as much as real granite, but my handyman quickly solved the problem by applying three coats of high-gloss polyurethane. This is a low-budget solution for what usually is a high-cost home improvement project. So if you are having to pinch pennies and need a frugal fixup, this is definitely worth your while. I would especially recommend it for people living in starter houses, singles, newlyweds or seniors on a fixed income -- and anyone who needs a bit of style for a small amount of money.
