laminate top? don't get scared

Get brutal! Let er' rip! Get out your chisel and hammer--or better yet, your steam iron and a wet cloth and get that baby off. Who know what you might find  . . .

This desk had a laminate top on it and my hubby ripped it off. He sanded down the raised edges (that thin little dark line on the edge) till they were flush. He stained the top in Kona from Rustoleum and painted the bottom in Primer Red from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. All was clear waxed, with extra coats of dark on bottom and clear again on top.

too fun!!  Don't be intimidated by laminate, you can paint it with your Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, or just rip it off and see what might be hiding!
