When Justin and I first started our adventures as DIY homeowners, it didn’t seem like there were that many options for countertops especially great options that we could afford. So, of course, we started looking at DIY kitchen countertop options.

Okay, it wasn’t THIS long ago, but you get the picture, right?  (via) don’t you love the dancing vegetables wallpaper border?

Fast forward a few years, and thanks to the internet, there’s lots of information (and pictures!) out there about many more DIY countertop surfaces.  Not only that, but prices on natural and engineered stone have come down a bit, making them more affordable options for the average homeowner.  If putting most of a kitchen renovation budget into countertops isn’t your cup of tea, there are DIY options out there now with excellent online tutorials.  In a nutshell, there are lots of ways to get the look you want for the price you are willing to pay.

Update your kitchen on a budget with these affordable DIY kitchen countertop options -- from concrete to wood to painted countertops, there's a style that will fit your budget!

Take a look at some of the great DIY kitchen countertop options that are out there — and if you’ve DIYed countertops, we’d love to see photos! You can drop us a line here or message us on Facebook here.
