We have a 10 year old pine log home, originally stained with a dark brown from Lowe's, we need to restain it, a different color. I know that it will need to be stripped, but can we do it ourselves with a chemical stripper, and what do you recommend?


I do not normally recommend using a chemical stripper because it takes so much water to rinse and neutralize. If you do go ahead with this process be sure to allow the logs to dry - at least a month.
