Restoring exposed painted ceiling beams
I am new to this lovely site, it looks great.
Can somebody help with a question i have?
In my house that I have just purchased, I have exposed ceiling beams that have been painted over the years. I would like to bring them back to a wood finish. I have removed the paint and am currently sanding them back to get a nice grain effect. But in places, mostly around the knots, the paint have seeped into the wood and no amount of sanding will remove it.
How can I get it out so its just wood? Is there a product that will do this?
Or should i be covering it somehow?
Thanks for any help folks.
VERY much appreciated.
