I have not tried it myself for this application, but Krylon Fusion spray paint is advertised to stick to plastic, even things like plastic patio chairs and such. I would think it had possibilities for this too.

 What is a fusion  spray ?

 I sanded down the laminate surface,  did 2 coats of primer, 2  coats of base paint [mauve blush],  then 2 coats of test pot on the stripes [farmer brown]. I sanded between all coats.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.

Well done and most splendid. Sanding really changes the texture of a painted piece, doesn't it?
What's the flowering shrub just outside your window?

 Thank you  Prof. Cecily .  The shrub is a rhododendron.  I am not sure what the specific name is of that one. They are very  common in this district and come in a range of colours  A distant  relative of my mother's , used to breed them on a park like property  that was eventually  donated to the local  council .
