Wall Shadows

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

I will be installing 1 x 6 T&G on the walls and ceiling. In the past I have finished it with Minwax water based poly. My wife would hang pictures and wall decorations on the wall and if she decided to move things a year or so later you would see where the decorations were hanging. I would like to know if there is a product that you can use on the pine to prevent this.

Finish with oil based poly… and every year, once or twice, get busy and take down those decorations and wash your surfaces with plain ole soap and water (when washing walls, always start at the bottom and wash up, to minimize streaks)…
