Concrete Countertops

So, I've been thinking about a kitchen remodel for a while now and one thing that definitely needs remedying is our countertop "situation". We have some really lovely Formica that reminds me of something my dog may have regurgitated. While I enjoy experiencing that thought every time I chop onions or butter my toast, I'd prefer a new, uh, perspective. I love the look of concrete countertops and feel it's a project I just might be able to pull off. I've read the Instructables entry, which was a bit overwhelming, and I'm wondering if any of you dear readers have experience with this particular DIY project? How difficult was it? Any tips, tricks, or other advice? Was it worth it? Can a novice DIYer pull it off? Share your thoughts in the comments!
