Lighten up Knotty Pine basement walls?

by Deb

I just bought a house with Knotty Pine basement walls and I want to lighten up the color. I love the wood and want to keep it but I don’t like the color. Can I just strip it and seal the bare wood? Very inexperienced since this is my 1st home but want to finish the basement and keep the wood. I am also putting in new flooring. The ceiling will be replaced with recessed lighting as well
