What type of paint are you planning on using? What color?

You should be able to cover the grain just fine. I would recommended using BIN primer. Its nasty stuff but covers most anything and drys super fast. I think its a lacquer primer. Then for the top coat I would use a good quality latex based paint like Benjamin Moore or AquaBorne? which is a water rest paint.
