    laminate does not readily accept paint but can be prepped with primer paint that seals it first. then paint and seal with varnish.....a good heat gun and a sharp blade can remove the laminate and you could then start with base wood....assuming there is actual wood and not particle board under the laminate

    Hello I just finished my laminate dresser. I clean it with soap & water. Then with another bucket of clean water I wape it several times to make sure it was clean, let it dry. I use Lowes valspar paint. I put two coat of paint on it. Look great, good luck. Visit

    Also, chalk paint adheres to almost any surface, including particule board! You just have to clean it really well, first
