Mitreplan – Laminate Your Benches - David Collins

As part of our room makeover Dave showed the easiest and cheapest way to transform your bench tops with the help of a Mitreplan from Mitre 10.

You may already have laminated bench tops that are perhaps tired and worn or maybe it’s time to update to a new fashion colour or design. Whatever the reason, there’s no need to waste money by paying someone else to do it for you. Just follow the Mitreplan like Dave did. It takes you through the step-by-step process on how to replace your bench tops or just laminate over the top of your old ones.
No matter what your budget is, you’ll have new bench tops in no time. We managed to save a huge $1000.00 just by doing it ourselves!
Before you start the job make sure you have the following tools:

  • Utility Knife Circular Saw (small)
  • Cordless drill Laminate trimmer
  • Drill Bits Measuring Tape
  • Pencil Rolling Pin or padded block
  • Square Adhesive V notched trowel
