    Almost everyone owns a faux wood laminate bookcase, they are functional and a wonderful way to display books and knick knacks. Despite their  practicality,  these pieces tend to be rather unattractive. This however is an easy fix with just some sanding, primer and paint you can breath new life into your old bookcase. Call your Cleveland Contractors for more information on how we can turn that bookcase into a fabulous shelf!

    Painting laminate wasn’t difficult, but I did find it more time consuming than painting wood.  To sum it up,the most important steps are to sand and prime all the surfaces before painting.  If you were to skip the 2 steps, your paint would have nothing to adhere to and would most likely peel right off.  Going into this project, I wasn’t sure of the result and if the paint would even stay since the surface was so smooth, but with the right preparation, I was thrilled with the outcome.
