I see lots of posts here and elsewhere on the web about painting laminate, but none of the photos I've seen show laminate counters with the metal edges, and metal joints between the counter tops and backsplashes.
Has anyone done this? If so, what kind of preparation did you do on the metal? We're thinking of using Giani granite but haven't made up our minds yet. The counter is probably 50 years old, and a sad faded turquoise, so almost anything would be an improvement.
Thanks in advance!
Are you sure the countertops are laminate and not vinyl? I have never seen laminate ones with the metal strips, but I have seen lots of vinyl ones with the metal strips. If they are vinyl, you can easily paint them, people used to paint their vinyl floors all the time when they couldn't afford to replace the vinyl. My late mother painted our living room vinyl lots of times. She used left over tractor paint. Check with one of your local home improvement stores for advice.
