Painting Cabinets - Brushing Putty vs. Primer on Oak
I've been reading up on painting oak cabinets, and another website recommends using brusing putty on oak cabinets to fill the grain. I'm trying to decide if it's worth the extra money as the putty costs $100/gallon. I know some grain will likely show through with primer but to me that isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I'm not sure.
Any thoughts or experiences using either putty or primer on oak?
