Paint-on-marble-countertops, if you want the look of marble but it’s just not in the budget, don’t despair. you can paint your existing laminate countertop to look like marble, for a fraction of the cost..

Prime the marble with an oil-based primer. be sure to select an oil-based primer, or the paint won’t stick to the surface of the marble. use a paint brush or roller to thinly coat the entire surface of the area you want to paint. use long, even strokes in the same direction to prime the marble.
