Currently sorting out my bathroom. Started laying LVT planks today. The bath side panel however is looking a bit rough. It's veneered MDF but it is exposed on the inside which has swelled in a couple of place where water has got to it. Without starting from scratch and making a new panel, I was thinking of cleaning it up, sealing it (somehow) and painting it with a matt finish maybe? It doesn't match the new floor either (misses picked the flooring! lol!) Sealing the exposed MDF, primer, top coat? Any advice on products etc would be great! (Panel is pulled out slightly on the picture as it doesn't fit now due to the raised flooring. I will have to trim the panels down a couple of mm) Thanks in advance!
