Lightbulb Hello handyman/ handywoman!
Um. I'm in need of a handyman/woman. Shy


Yes Yup. I'm repainting my cabinets in the laundry room but they're the cheap melamine type. I've looked all over the internet on ways to paint melamine but I keep getting different answers. Sanding and a primer seem to be the best start but I can't figure out what kind of paint to paint over the primer. Any advice?

Thanks guys and gals.....Heart

Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

They told me "you can't really paint over melamine". I think they're wrong about this.

Rustoleum makes a countertop paint that's formulated for such use.....

They are right, any paint on that surface likely won't stick well or if it does, will chip or scratch terribly.

You really can't. it'll flake and chip...

It's usually initially painted using a process with heat in the factory...It's like a paint mixed with plastic that's coated onto the particle board.

so you can't really sand them well either...


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

There are some spray paints that might stick...

But the colors are kinda limited.

Borrow three six year old boys and tell them to NOT get any paint on your cabinets. They'll be coated five minutes after you leave the room.

I think if you really scuff the shit out of them and prime before painting it'll stick.

That's what I'm a-gonna do. I'll let you all know how it turns out.

Thanks everyone!
