"I saw a photo of a white bookshelf with a rustic wood back, and thought that would be the perfect way to update our laminate shelves,and get an affordable farmhouse look for my office! Painting over laminate furniture made me a bit nervous at first, but I realized it is almost as simple as painting over wood! The most important thing is to use a quality primer to ensure adhesion. Typically, I use Kilz because it has never let me down as far as sticking to stubborn surfaces. Unfortunately, it smells strong for days so I try to only use it outside. I used BIN shellac primer for this project, followed by a latex paint. The BIN still smells during application, but it is not quite as strong. Unlike oil based, it dries completely odorless! The paint color I used is Sherwin Williams in the color Alabaster. "
