If you've ever wanted to upgrade your old countertops to granite, but thought it was too pricey - think again.

Danny Lipford, a home improvement expert and host of "Today's Homeowner," says getting the look of granite is easy and affordable.

Lipford says you can give dull laminate countertops a stunning granite look with a countertop paint kit.

A kit by Giani costs $49.95 and requires a series of simple steps involving paint brushes, rollers, sponges and paint.

The kit can be used on plastic laminates and wood.
