laminate counter tops

I doubt if it will cover a painted surface like that without flaking off.

laminate counter tops

They sell paint kits for redoing your laminate tops.

I've never done it but it's cheaper than buying a new counter at least.

I'd remove the paint - and finish with a kit.

OR shellac (instead of epoxy) over your counter - there's some that's designed for exactly that purpose.
At this present moment in time I am making cabinets for the kitchen - just in case you wanted to know what I'm doing when I'm not around.
