    For the countertop, Google danny lipford countertop, where you can see a way to paint a faux granite countertop.

    About the video question, I redid my countertops with the countertop refinishing kits. It took me a long weekend from start to finish. I had mis-matched countertops and just wanted something to get me over the hump until I redid the whole kitchen. I did this 18 months ago and still looks great. I did put an extra finishing coat hoping to make it last longer. You need a cutting board and a trivet for hot items but I would have been doing that anyway. Less than a hundred bucks made a world of difference. Kitchen redo is on the 10 year plan instead of the 5 year plan now.

    Adam, Ray, Matt, and Gary; Thanks for the work you do to put this show out every week. It always makes my week better and also enjoy the occasional knee slappin’ cackle. Much appreciation.

    Love your show, but your weekly humiliation of Ray reached a very uncomfortable level on this show. Adam, sometimes you’re the “nice guy” who needs to make people feel bad about themselves. Ray is probably not going to change, just like your parents.

      You’re right! This episode started out really awkwardly, but Adam needs everyone not to do their best, but to do his best. That’s the risk of working with the Aceman, I guess.

    I had a company resurface my countertops to look like granite. They were done in half a day and it was half the price of replacement.

    I loved the part where Adam went off on Ray. I wasn’t completely unaware of the irony of Adam very publicly berating his dear friend Ray for making other people feel bad. But, for me, that just made it funnier.
