Starting the process, Jennifer paints her counter white with a roller. She then used a DIY marble kit she bought off Amazon to mimic the lines in a piece of marble using a tiny paintbrush included in the kit. Jennifer then used a larger paintbrush to smudge the lines to make it look more like the real thing.

Finally, Jennifer coated the counter with gloss to protect it from wear and tear and keep the counter looking shiny and new.

Viewers can’t get over how lifelike the kitchen hack has proven to be. "I've done the exact same thing to mine. It looks so good when it's done. Great job!" one user commented.
