Help with tired interior

As weather cools off here, we turn to interior projects. New cushions will be ordered of blue striped material. But we are not sure how to approach interior wood. It basically looks tired, has a couple levels of color stain some light and galley expecially looking darker and there is some mild staining on bulkhead. Our goals are to create a lighter fresher look with all stain colors matching. We are also wanting to be economical in terms of time and budget. So what does the community recommend? Full strip and start over or light sand, color matched and finish? Would anyone recommend paint anywhere?

Re: Help with tired interior

Oh thank God you started this thread.
I'm going through the same process. Upholstery is a no-brainer, but how the hell does one spruce up the bulkheads without ripping them out?

I have marine plywood bulkheads that have a faux wood veneer glued to them. It's essentially a photo of woodgrain on a label that was applied to the plywood. It's 40 years old, faded and looks terrible. I'm wondering if you have something similar?

One suggestion I received, was beadboard. Stain it and glue or tack it in place with finishing nails. That's one idea, but I'm still looking for others.

Re: Help with tired interior

You can order "door skin" plywood if you want a whole new look. Cherry, ash, maple, etc. and it's easy to glue onto the old panels way easier then trying to do veneer overlay.

Re: Help with tired interior

just another note... "YACHTY" looking interior wood work usually has more horizontal lines reminiscent of planking, not like "paneling" we see in houses reminiscent of the 70s

Re: Help with tired interior

I personally think it looks in reasonable shape and a light sanding, re-stain and a couple light clear coats of varnish, maybe in a semi-gloss would having it look ship-shape in no time..

Re: Help with tired interior

It seems to me like interiors that look bright are so because of lots of natural light, and lots of very light colors in counters and cushions.



I think I would consider painting bulkheads white. Or maybe the galley cabinets (white seems logical in a kitchen, and it would be visual separation between the galley and the salon).

Re: Help with tired interior

If it's stained wood, you can try some of the restore a finish type products. Don't have one in front of me but they do a good job blending water stains and such on furniture.

Bubblehead, I'd probably go with wood veneer if you really want to spruce up the looks of the fake veneer. Something like this Buy Mahogany Veneer 12 sq ft pack at Woodcraft

Re: Help with tired interior

Thanks guys and gals, just what I was looking for.
I think Luan might be a little thicker than what I'm looking for, but the Woodcraft veneer might be just the ticket!
