I'm wondering what finish was used on this concrete benchtop? - I have a very similar concrete benchtop in my kitchen and I've had lots of trouble with getting the right finish.. I'm about to try something new that I found in a very old Inside Out mag, stove paint and wax, the finish looks amazing. Would appreciate your comments.

Wow, never heard of the stove paint and wax solution! Sounds interesting and I would be keen to know how it turns out. This one was polished LOTS of times and then sealed with a concrete sealer. I cant remember the brand, 'Dry-Treat' I suspect. It still stains with red wine and other liquids but the stains disappear within a couple of weeks.

my husband not confident with the stove paint and wax solution, as he believes it would wear off too quickly and we'd be left with an eyesore - I saw this finish on a concrete bench in an older magazine and thought it might be a good solution... I will look into concrete sealers, like Dry-Treat. Thanks for your help on this, much appreciated!

Hi Jordyzee,
The benchtop is concrete, poured in place and then polished.
Cheers, Joseph

If I can't do a stunning granite peninsula, let's think about concrete. But I'd like to do something different for the 'waterfall' effect.
