Hi Jam

I don't believe it can. Formica is a plastic, and as such will not bind well to paint. By roughing up the surface, scouring it antiseptically clean and using a tough penetrating primer like Bulls Eye you can get what seems to be a good base for a finish coat of paint....but the first hard object you drop on the newly painted surface will probaly chip off the paint.

Best
