LA Good Question: Staining/Painting a Laminate

I purchased an ikea malm bed in birch veneer about a year ago. My decor has drastically changed in that year and I was wondering if you know of anyway to paint it or stain it a different color?

Oh man, we totally feel Daria's situation since we're constantly changing our place around. Help her out after the jump:

We haven't had any experience re-staining a laminate but we have had a great time spray painting some. So far nothing has chipped off (and we didn't even sand or prime it first, not recommended obviously). You can see our tips on spraypainting here and see Jon's January Jumpstart and the Ikea chair that he painted. In the meantime, anyone else have experience with Ikea products and painting or staining them?
