    peel and stick veneer?

    does anyone know if peel and stick veneer will adhere to melamine and stay put after a coat of paint?

    Couple of questions. You gonna put veneer on Melamine and then paint it? Why would you do that? If you need a Melamine box with one side of veneer, you can order it that way. Or you can order one side Melamine and the other side 'raw' and then you can apply veneer to that. Whatcha doin'? Not much sticks to Melamine, which is the point of it. Find a sheet goods dealer and see what is offered.

    In that case, do a test piece.

    Yup and they make white paint that matches white melamine That would be the roll and stick veneer
    Or he could go the other way and paint the melamine

    If you scuff sand the Melamine it should stick.

    Or, use a paperbacked veneer, and scuff sand the Melamine, and use solvent base contact cement.

    Or, just contact cement " paintable plywood...Maple, Poplar, Birch.

    Or, use " paintable plywood as above, and laminate one side with white cabinet liner.

    It's not unusual to see cabinets shops bond one piece of HPL (formica and such) one top of another. If it's works on high pressure laimate, it would work on melamine as well. I'd do as Mike suggested, scuff it really well and put a "bonding coat" of contact cement on it. Let it tack up as normal, then apply the peel and stick veneer. I used that method on a couple of cabinet refacings I did, and the grip that results has to be seen to be believed! Be very sure your veneer is lined up fairly well, one it touches it won't move.

    sounds like my best chance fred, wish i had a scrap piece of melamine to scuff sand and see if paint would hold..maybe i should laminate the inside with something and then the outside would be paintable for sure.

    mike you got a source for the cabinet liner you mentioned?
