Hi Joyce,

 

A hot radiator in cold room will create condensation which is moisture from the air.

 

MDF will readily absorb moisture, so sealing it is very important. Use an oil based primer and an oil based paint. Prime well and use two coats of paint.

 

Behr make an excellent oil based primer and their oil based paint will work fine on your project.

 

Visit the paint department at your local Home Depot, our paint associates will show you the Behr products and assist you in choosing the best primer and paint for your project.

 

Mike,
