our cabin was built in 1940s what would you use on the inside logs? it is way to dark in the living room.


I would recommend sanding the entire room down to clean wood. Start with a side grinder with a 5" disc to get to good clean wood. You may have to experiment with different grit disc. 50 or 60 grit is a good choice to start with. Then take a orbital or palm sander and sand smooth with 60 or 80 grit disc. Perma Chinks Life Line Interior stain is what I would recommend for a finish. Inside you can go as light as you wish since there is minimal UV to deal with. Also applying a couple of coats of Acrylic Clear Coat is recommended to put a good shell over the stain to protect it.
