We have a cedar panabode home that is approx. 35 yrs old. We are refinishing the interior and have sanded down the logs and would like to use a waterbourne satin clear coat. We assume that the finish was oil previously but we do not want the darkness anymore and would like to lighten it with the waterbourne clear coat. Any advice or suggestions? Thanks.


If you have sanded all of the old oil stain off you will be fine with the clear coat. Interior is fine for just a clear, but I would add some UV blocker so the walls keep there color a little bit around pictures and wall hangings.
