Yes, You Can Tile Over Your Laminate Countertop!

I'm constantly on the lookout for affordable ways to update kitchens and bathrooms, so I was excited when I discovered that there is a product that makes it possible to tile directly on top of an outdated laminate counter top. Not only is this approach more environmentally friendly than tearing out your old counter, dumping it into a landfill, and installing new plywood upon which to tile; it's also easier, neater, and faster!

Visit Ron Hazelton's website for step-by-step DIY instructions including a video clip featuring Armen Tavy, the inventor of the product. As an added bonus, Armen even sings a little ditty at the end of the video!
