Please don't paint your counter tops!

In reply to painting over formica countertops by Laura on January 6th, 2001 10:05 PM [Go to top of thread]

Laura - it would be adviseable NOT to paint your counter tops. A two component epoxy (rated for incidental food contact) is the only thing that would be strong enough to stand up to counter use - and even then it isn't as strong as formica. Also, the price of 2 comp epoxy - combined with what it takes to prep and apply - you could go to THD and buy something already made (assuming you have straight counters) for likely less than the paint would cost.

Please don't try and use a wall paint on the counters - they are not designed for this sort of use and will fail.
