Preparation of wood? - How did you paint over the oak - do you still see the grain?

Hi djjashock,

This query wound up in my inbox because I uploaded the photo for a designer for a story but I have no idea (a lot of designers don't want unsightly BEFORE photos clunking up their pretty portfolios.)

This is from interior designer Shirley Meisels' own home, so I suggest asking the same question, but under this picture, as this one is in Shirley's portfolio and won't route you back to me:




Sorry for giving you the runaround on this!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The home originally had transitional style, with yellow walls and oak trim. Meisels painted everything with Benjamin Moore's Chantilly Lace, using washable flat on the walls and satin finish on the trim.In addition to all of that painting, renovations included replacing all the flooring, cutting a window and sidelights into the front door, adding air conditioning, renovating the powder room, replacing radiators, completing a master bathroom that had been roughed in, working on the kitchen (more on that later), adding built-ins and reconfiguring closets. Later on the couple dug down and finished the basement, which took another six weeks.
