Ok here's a job we did a while back in May... The custmoer purchase a 1.5 million dollar log home and wanted to change the interior color from dark walnut to aged oak. We did this without corncob blasting or any other stripping for that matter.

How did you do it then?


trade secret if I tell you you would have to die... Just kidding we put a grainning base on and dry brushed the gel stain and then latex varnish. 4,000 sq ft walls and ceilings the upper part of the house was drywall thank god but the entire bottom floor are logs. We painted all the trim in the entire house from a dark brown stain to a light green oil satin finish.

Great idea. Looks great.
It must have been a lot of tedious brush work. Especially cutting in all the gaps.

Wow, I haven't seen an Alco store in years.

We used to go to those when I was a small kid to buy stuff.

That was before Wal-Mart dominated everything.
