Hi - What a great site! I stumbled in here by doing a search at google and I think my answer may be somewhere on your message boards so any help finding it would be appreciated.
My question: I'd like to paint my 22-year-old formica cabinets, do I follow the suggestions offered on this board about wood cabinets or is there another process and/or special paint? Thanks for your help.

No, you do not want to follow directions for finishing wood cabinets to paint formica. Although most of the primers mentioned here are good primers, you will not get the best durability for formica.

I suggest 2 part epoxy for that and tile, etc. Here is a site that sells the product and gives instructions on how to apply,

Hope this helps,
