How Did I Do That?

I've had several inquiries as to what products and technique I used to paint the laminate countertop and the hardware for my wet bar remodel.  So exactly how did I do it?

For the laminate countertop first I sanded it very well.

Second I painted it with a latex bonding primer.  I used Benjamin Moore.

Next I painted two coats of semi-gloss paint.  Again I used Benjamin Moore.  (I'm a big fan of BM paints.  A pure case of you get what you pay for.)

Finally, I put three coats of Polycrylic sealer on. 

All the hardware, handles and shelf hardware I spray painted with Rust-oleum metallic bonding paint.

My countertop does not get much wear and tear so I think this treatment will wear ok. 

I just discovered this product and it sounds like a good option if you are doing a bathroom or even a kitchen.

  4. I didn’t use the rustoleum paint. I didn’t discover that until after mine was done. I used all latex paints and primer and three coats of sealer. It is now, 2 wks later finally cured enough to use it.
