Hi Gigi, Maybe use Contact instead of paint as paint will chip!
Gigi: I have painted formica cabinets -- and they've lasted for years and years. (I'll attach a photo of my kitchen.)
Remove all hardware (label back of doors -- so they go back in the same place,) DO NOT paint over hardware!
Prime. Then apply two coats of a GOOD latex paint.
Hi Gigi! Here are some great links for the information you need! Good luck to you and Happy New Year!
