In Response To: formica cabinets (Toni Graziano)

Formica takes paint fairly well (it does not shrink and expand and it does not swell with humidity). Clean the surface and sand it lightly using 220 grit sandpaper. Apply a coat of good primer and then 2 coats of finish paint. Get good paint. It makes a difference. I prefer Porter but the "premium" paint at Home depot (baer?) is pretty good also.
