Painting over Laminate

We just bought a new house and are in the process of painting the walls. Although, in the kitchen the previous owners painted the sides of the kitchen counters a bright yellow. What would be the best way to remove the paint from the cabinets?

First I would try something like oops or goof off, if that doesn't work laquer thinner should remove it.

Is it the cabinets or the sides of the counter painted yellow? Counters, I'm not that familiar with- cabinets - I may be able to help. If it's cabinets, are you planning on painting them, or stripping down to the original finish?

are you wanting to get it back to the original laminate?? or just change the color of the paint. because stripping that paint would be a pain. M1 remover/goofoff would work fine, but lacquer thinner could be a bit dangerous. if there is any crack in that laminate and that lacquer thinner gets behind it, that glue is toast. i would HIGHLY suggest priming it and then repainting. good luck
