table refinish??

sorie6April 26, 2013

How can I refinish the old table? It is formica I think. How would you do it? Sand it primer first? What kind of paint?
Thanks for any help.

pic of top. The pic came out nicer than it really looks on top. Thanks

I had a similar dilemma! I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and it was awesome. I decided to stain the top just to give it a different look. But the ASCP is perfect because you don't have to prime!

Use "Bin" primer on laminate.. it works great. I refinished a Maple bedroom set that was mine growing up. It all had laminate top, the nightstand, dresser and chest of drawers..... I painted all the furniture a cream color and this was 7 years ago, the top still looks perfect.. Bin is great stuff....
