How to repurpose laminate kitchen countertops? Sign In/Join

Hi All
We just replaced our kitchen countertops and I would love to repurpose the old blue laminate one but I am lacking imagination. Any ideas?

The obvious use is for a garage/basement workshop counter. That is all I can think of now.

We cut our laminate counter into a square and put legs on it for a child's table. Or in a rec room or covered porch, you could cut it into an oblong, paint the edges, put legs on it and use it for a coffee table. Or cut in a smaller square, put longer legs on it and use it for a plant stand.

I used a piece as the top for a glass cutting counter in my craft room. it was only about 2 X 2 but very sturdy.


Life is GOOD!!
