Feeling Proud:How I DIY'd My Old Formica Countertop- Thoughts?
My counter top was full of stains and burns, so I sanded it all down, painted it with acrylic paint mixed with drywall paste. I sponge painted sheets of printer paper, cut them into squares, and hand painted or stenciled some with flowers etc. Glued them down to look like tiles, and coated with marine poly (not water based). I did this around 2000, and have lightly sanded (to prevent build up) and reapplied poly every 2-3 years. You could make this fit anywhere!
