I assume you mean the facing on the edges of the counter, right?


I suppose it would be possible: After all, if one came loose, the other might be ready to peel off as well.. Here is a small tutorial on how to repair a crack in a laminate counter top --- not exactly the same but it might help you repair the broken piece where you relocate it:

But do be careful, because the laminate you peel off could be brittle...


But why not try another approach. Get a contrasting, coordinating strip of the laminate (don't even TRY to MATCH color: make it a design statement!) and redo ALL your counter edges.


Or try a wood edging - very trendy these days:

Keep us posted on your project. We'd love to hear how it works out!

Ah, I see!


I had teh wrong picture in my mind! You are right, a different color just on the ends wouldn't work as well !


Good luck trying... keep us posted!
