Think of paint finishes as you might the spectrum of colors on a paint fan. In this instance, though, the spectrum is not colors but gradations of glossiness: matte (flat, non-shiny) at one end and high-gloss (so shiny you can almost see your face) at the other end. Which is the best paint finish for the kitchen? Satin and semi-gloss tend to be favorites, while matte is rarely recommended because it is difficult to clean and beads of moisture will cause streaks.

You have two priorities when prepping MDF cabinets for painting: seal the edge and use an oil-based primer.The edge of MDF is more porous, and if it does not already have a finished surface, then you will want to use some drywall compound to seal it and keep moisture from swelling the material during the painting process.

The surface must be rough and easy to adhere to the new paint. Clean them with soap and water after sanding the wardrobe surface. After drying, the cabinets edge, floor, counter tops, walls and other surfaces should have painting tape to prevent the color from entering places that you do not want. The painting should be applied.
Then brush a single brush with the bonding first. Two primer coats are suggested, allowing the first to dry for at least four hours.
