Refacing (Resurfacing) laminate board


I have a laminate board which is part of a piece of furniture. It got chipped. I am thinking of DIY to reface it. I looked at some videos and it seems like an easy job but I am not sure if I can handle it.

Just in case if I can't handle it, where should I go to reface/resurface that piece? I called some kitchen refacing companies but they usually don't take a job like this.

Thanks for any help.

Need to know more than that!!!!!

Are you talking about a table-top covered with plastic laminate like is used on a kitchen countertop?

Do you own a router?

Yes, something like a kitchen countertop. Smooth top. White melamine.

I don't have a router.

Without a router you are asking for trouble. With a router (or laminate trimmer) it is an easy thing to do.

If it's a small chip, just paint it.
