table refinish??

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.

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....
