Is it possible to change the color of my kitchen counter laminate by some sort of dye or other product? I want to change the color without replacing it.

No. One of the advantages of laminate is its ability to resist stains and dis-coloring.

Painting is not a good option, either.

Hi,

If you plan to re-do the top at all then strip the old laminate off first. It is easier to work this way then to try and go over the old.......

pleasanr,

There are a couple of products which allow you to paint on Formica/Plastic Laminate. They are Aqua Bond from Aqua Finishing Solutions and Bukks Eye 1-2-3 from Zinsser.

I am facing the same predicament. I just laminated particle board only to find out the color was way off. Long story but I am probably going to try one of the above mentioned products.

Do me a huge favor and let me know what you end up doing. Send me an email at Bill.Patterson@bellsouth.com.

By the way, if you are interested in where I got my info, I got it from Martha Stewart's website - - believe it or not.

Good luck.
