I have formica kitchen cabinets that I would like to paint. Any suggestions as to how to get the paint to bond to a smooth surface so it will not scratch off when bumped?

2 part Epoxy is going to be your best bet, be sure to follow the directions and use the specified primer. Industrial Enamel may work well too. I wouldn't suggest painting formica to anyone, site unseen, but if it must be done this is what I would use. Be sure to go to a pro paint store for your paint.

I knew I saw the link on this site: http://doityourself.com/paint/refinishing.htm

I read through the article and this is almost exactly how I would do it.
