Fabulous! Where was this tutorial when I needed it last summer? lol

I never thought it was possible to paint laminate so I am delighted to stumble across this. I have a few pieces that are a bit tatty from years of wear and tear, I thought I was going to have to bin them but I am now delighted there is something I can do with them)

Thanks for sharing this method. I have never figured out what way you can paint on laminate, and this is unbelievable. I never thought that you had to get the coat sticky to make it take the regular paint. Great post. I love it! I have several ideas for items in my house now.

I have always wondered how to cover laminate with paint. There are shelves in my utility room that have that on them and I really wanted to paint them to match the appliances but figured it couldn't be done and was going to just use contact paper. This saved me. Thank you.

This couldn't have showed up at a better time! I painted my office and replaced and painted a lot of things, but I have this ugly old brown laminate office desk that now looks like a monster in my new spring green, yellow and salmon colored room, so I was thinking of trying to paint it and now I see that I can. What does a white desk sound like?
