Q: A couple of weeks ago you wrote about your brother Bryan redoing his kitchen. You said he spent the better part of four days priming and painting the cabinets and painting the walls and the ceiling — all stark white.

My question is: Did Bryan try to fill in oak grain texture before priming and painting his cabinets? Are there any painting tips you could pass along? Did he finish in oil or latex? Did he glaze edges or just leave color as is?
