Our 1909 Chestnut log home has a dark interior. It has not been maintained in years. How can I lighten it and do I have to put a finish on it. If so, why and what kind of product . the outside has been finished with Lifeline Advance Satin clear coat.


It would need to be sanded to lighten up. I do recommend that you at least put a clear coat on them so the dust and dirt cannot get into the wood fiber.
