Re: Help with tired interior

I would start with a scrubbing with TSP, then perhaps a bit of Oxalic acid. this should event the color out. You may have to experiment with different products to see what gets it even. I would then just varnish on top of that. The problem with trying to lighten wood is that it is hard to get it even. Much easier to darken the lighter wood to the color of the darkest.
