    Big box stores sell metal edge trim mainly used for flooring that will work. It comes in various widths and is aluminum. Find the brand name and see if a store will order the width that you need if it is not in stock. It is attached by nails or screws. It has a slight rolled over edge to go over the edge of the laminate.

    Get several different colors of paint matching the Formica and use a small paint brush to paint the line or cloth to dab the line wait a few minutes and wipe any excess that may have gotten on Formica or wait until dry and scrap off excess. Problem solved. I just checked and where I accidentally got paint on my brown lines probably six or seven years ago is still there. I could not get it off then or now. No need to spend any money just use what you have. Good luck. If I knew how to post a picture I would. Sorry!

      I'm sure it was was white semi gloss latex enamel that I was painting my cabinets with. If you don't have any left over paint go to Wal-Mart type store and buy small bottles of acrylic paint to match colors of countertop. Probably less than $2 each. Or just use one color like a cream. Sorry so late in answering just now back on computer. Let me know how it turns out. I love your countertop looks like real granite.
