I started out thinking I'd maninate nre Formica over the old - which you can do. Once I got the top off I found the particle board has significant water damage around the faucet and sink rim. You couldn't tell from the top.

Making a new top is easy as is laminating new Formica, but you do need a router for the edges. As al alternative you could buy a prefab top at HD and cut it to size.

I'll be using Alure flooring but not installing it till Spring.
I'll post some photo links tomorrow. It really turned out well.

They use vinyl strips to allow you to change the look of your cabinets. Our original panels were wood grain on one side and plaid on the other.

That does look good!
I hope you don't have the cold weather issue that I had though. We had another cold snap and it became apparent that I have to take it all out and start over.
I put a piece in the freezer and found that it shrunk almost a 16th :~(

I think we're going to go back to vinyl.

Anyone else have problems with this stuff shrinking in the cold? I wanted to use it on my walls aswell.

It does look pretty sharp.

The material I was using wasn't Home Depot FRP shower wall panels. It was a different sheet plastic I bought from a plastic supplier. I don't know what that means WRT the FRP panels but thought that should be made clear.

Great, thanks. I think I'm going to give it a try and see what happens. The walls and ceiling in my '85 Southwind look terrible.
