just repainted the bathroom, and the pine bench with golden oak stain was really bugging me, so with about a third of a sheet of MDF and a little paint, I have a much more contemporary bench, with added storage. just a simple little project, but I hope you like it, the one thing that bugs me is that I made the top hinge so tight that the paint actually kept it from closing until i just wore it off. maybe I’ll sand it down to make space and repaint.

a heated seat for drying your feet. good idea and i’m sure it looks better than the radiator it is hiding.

i have to ask… will the mdf hold up to the moisture and heat?

the MDF will hold up well to heat, and being sealed with latex paint, it shouldn’t have too much trouble with moisture, but I wouldnt use it in a bathroom where the shower is used daily. this bathroom is in the first floor of what used to be a two family house, so it still has the shower, but now it is attatched to the kitchen so it really doesnt get used, there shouldnt be any moisture issue.

Have your say...
