My husband & I had a log home built almost 4 years ago, and while we love it, we need to move. Removing our pictures from the walls & rugs from the floors, we are alarmed to find that the wood under the pictures is far lighter than the wood which had been exposed; & the patches of floor under the rugs is the same. The interior walls in question are 1x8" white pine, never finished with anything (the builders were crooks & what did we know?) and the floor is yellow pine, 2 coats polyurethane (4 years ago). Is this normal UV responses? What can we do to render the color consistent, in ways which ideally are possible for 2 non-handypeople to accomplish, reasonably affordable, and a decent remedy for the folks who we hope will soon buy this place?
Any suggestions are desperately solicited!
Thanks in advance,
