You will find, however, that painting melamine board is more difficult than you Case study with great before and after shots showing how one Owatrol customer has used ESP to repaint pine and melamine kitchen cupboards without sanding. I painted 11 cabinet doors with one tin. so pleased with the result. and like the other reviewer, keep it well ventilated to avoid a headache. I applied one coat OF RONSEAL MELAMINE PAINT, mellow GREEN, AND FOUND I DEFINITELY NEEDED A SECOND COAT.
