I'm on a very tight budget so am thinking of painting my old laminate kitchen countertops. Has anyone had experiences with this? Thanks

You will need an industrial product that is food safe theres various manufactures depending in the region you are in this product is not DIY you need to higher a pro

I won't recommend paint but what about adding a new laminate cover( remove the old one and glue the new one on top of the wood ) I would recommend a professional

Thanks. I have seen DIY products made especially for painting kitchen laminate (spray). They sell it at H Depot etc., I wondered if anybody has ever tried them. Wish I had the $ to hire a pro!

I have used melamine paint to paint counter tops. You have to lightly sand the surface first. You can also use two colors and make it look like granite. You do have to be careful not to cut on it though.

My daughter spray painted her counter tops like you are talking about. They turned out very rough to the touch.

Did she sand it first? Even though it was rough to the touch did it look good? Thanks for your reply.

I don't know if she sanded it. It didn't look good enough for me.

All DIY products won't be good enough for counter tops
