Updating counter tops
I used wrapping paper and lots of painter’s tape to protect area around the countertop.
There was a little bit of prep work such as sanding and removing the plastic trim around the base of the countertop.
That’s not the ego talking, but more of a motivated-control-freak-I-can-do-it-better-attention-to-detail-OCD kind of way.
Be sure to evenly coat both surfaces, then let them dry to the touch. The counter edges were finished with a plastic T-molding.Disclaimer: This information is intended as a guide and not step-by-step instructions.Always wear eye protection and read and understand the user’s manuals for the tools you are using. Once dry, I laid the particle board back down on the laminate…Careful, you get one shot at this. I wanted to re-use the old molding so I just measured the old counter for setting up my router.Then I flipped it all over and worked the laminate onto the particle board with my J roller. You can find this stuff in all kinds of colors online, and some of you may remember they edged all of the arcade games in this stuff.I laid the top of the counter face down on the laminate so I could center it, making sure there was laminate overhanging all sides of the particle board.
