Sorry about your luck with the table – MDF is not exactly finish friendly. You can stain it, but it doesn’t have a grain, so you have to create one yourself. I’ve seen some people do it, but I’m not sure it would look good on a large surface. Veneer is your best bet, but paint is also an good option. I’ve put up a lot of trim made from MDF and it looks good when finished.

The key is to make sure it is well primed. There are a few excellent primers that fit the bill such as Clawlock and they work well for edges as well. I would also suggest using a spay gun as you want an even finish.

Best of luck.
