Dirty Tongue and Groove Ceiling
This exterior ceiling was cleaned about a month before I started the rest of the job. When I cleaned it, it was very dirty. House is near a heavily used road and the ceiling was essentially black. There was no intention to refinish the ceiling, but when I came back to do the other work, I noticed that most of the urethane was almost gone.
The grime had stained the wood, and it was a lot of work to get it looking good again. I was not able to get all of the stains out, but I was very happy with the end result.
The images progress from the condition that I found it when I arrived, partially sanded, totally sanded, and two coats of spar urethane (it still needs one more).
