How to fix discoloration under objects on polyurethaned pine walls?

Christine SchneiderWilliam

Answered

We have tongue and groove pine on our walls. We are going to move and when taking down objects that were hanging on the walls, they look terrible as there is the imprint from the object where the wall didn't amber. I tried lightly sanding and trying to match a stain but it's not working. Please help!

    Use a gel stain and oil based polyurethane. Oil based has a yellow cast to it.

      I need to darken up the areas that were under the objects hanging on the walls, but it's not working, even though I lightly sanded. I originally used Minwax Polycrylic clear, so I don't know what color stain to use to match with a wall that naturally aged from the sun. I will look at the gel stains when I go shopping. I tried to use another stain that I had and it turned the wall white, but I was able to sand that off. Thank you

    Gel stain soaks into the wood and also stays on the surface. Try to get something close to the color you have. Oil base poly will give a yellow tinge. Water based does not.
