From what you posted, you could calk the joints, have a bucket of water and a rag to clean up with. Before calking sand all the wood lightly(for adhesion)Prime the wood with a quality primer, tell your paint store what you are doing. Cut the tube of calk at a slight angle, about 1/8 inch bead, calk one joint at a time(the faster you get, the more joints you can apply the calk before wiping) and use a wet finger to smooth, remove excess calking with the rag. your fingers will get sore, you can use the rag wrapped around your finger, but will not get the best results. After the calk dries, paint.
