We just bought a cedar log home and one of the bedrooms was painted with one coat of latex primer and two coats of latex paint. These walls are the interior part of the cedar logs that for the exterior walls of the home. What is the best way to strip the paint and not damage the cedar wood underneath? And then what do we do to restore the original finish of the wood (a golden finish)? Thanks for your help. Danny


Sand the logs and apply a more natural stain and cklear coat.
