Question

want to paint a desk and give it a car like finish


How can I paint the laminate on this desk that I have made of cheap press wood

Don't really want to buy a whole new desk, but a nice brighter color just so it will go with the room

I was told by a neighbor that spray paint does not stick to the laminate

Thanks

You'll want to prime it with something like Zinsser B-I-N first then paint over it.
