Hello :)

I've recently moved into a new house and we're busy tarting things up.

One of the things that needed doing was a new path panel. We've had a carpenter make one out of water-resistant MDF. I'm aware MDF isn't the best for a bathroom but we need something quick and cheap to tide us over until the bathroom can be replaced.

My plan is to paint the panel (and especially the edges) with MDF primer and then zinsser perma white to give it some protection from water ingress. Does that sound like a sensible plan? Is there any superior product that will help it withstand moisture?
