MDF Painting and Preparation Using Floor Paint?


Postby Invader75 » Sun Jul 26, 2015 10:02 am

Hi All,

Apologies if this is in the wrong section and a bit of a newbie question. I've got some flat pack MDF kitchen unit's I've bought for my camper van. They're not covered and plain. I was thinking of painting them but want a good finish. A few people on various camper van forums said they'd used a roller with garage floor paint as it was very hard wearing.

If I wanted to do the same, would I still need to prep the wood? i.e. Sand and prime.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi

Yes you will still need to prep and prime the MDF. We have a project page here that may offer you some more insight if needed: http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/projects/mdf.htm

I've just been to my local Paint shop and they suggested using some 'Bedec Multi Surface paint' as it's an all in one. Anyone used it before?
