    If it is an edging strip you can either glue it back on or remove it and purchase another one. They come in a variety of colors in the wood grain pattern.

      It is not an edging strip. A Formica top with separate curved wooden edge piece that looks like it has been stained and then covered with polyacrylic or whatever. It is the polyacrylic that is peeling.

      Thanks for your help.

    You should be able to lightly sand it and then recoat with varathane or varnish. Use at least two coats. If you happen to scratch the stain then re-apply a coat before varnishing.
