    It takes some work, but it can be done. The edges of MDF will absorb much more paint or finish materials than the flat surfaces. Applying a few coats of primer or sanding sealer to the edges with light sanding in between will give you a smooth surface for painting.

    If you apply paste wood filler to the edges with a damp sponge or brush, you will have a lot less finishing to do later on.
