How can I successfully paint cabinets with Formica type finish? The cabinets are in excellent condition but I want to change the color and hardware?
Just like you paint anything else. Clean clean clean grease free surface, I use TSP. A good primer, then paint and take your time to let the paint dry in between coats.
