Non-yellowing ideas for my half bathroom.
Just a brief introduction, my name is Michael, and I am 24 yrs old, and just purchased my first home. It is a log home on 5 heavily pined acres approximately 2.5 hour north of NYC, in Eldred, NY.
Anyways, I am installing a new kitchen with white pine 6"x6" support beams, and 3"x5.5" ceiling beams all roughcut, and 6" T&G knotty pine above the ceiling beams. I also am going to redo all of the interior walls, the outermost walls are the lightly stained logs, so I am going to finish the interior walls with 8" T&G to match the interior logs. I also have 1.5 bathrooms, the full bath I am going to follow the stain color of the rest of the house, with a poly-urethane to seal from moisture, any better recommended product to seal wood for bathroom use?
Now my half bath is what sparked my interest in joining, Ideally, I'd like 8" T&G on walls, and 6" on the ceiling, ALL unstained, and un polyed, basically installed in store bought condition, my favorite look. I only have a vanity, toilet in this half bath. I am concerned with water splashing from hand washing, and swelling, staining the unprotected wood. I would put a low gloss poly on it, but HATE the golden yellow it changes to.
Any ideas for me, that will seal the T&G white pine, with a low gloss? Or ideally NO gloss, just for this half bath?
I have a huge project for this house, and will probably post quite a bit. Please bare with me if I ask any usual questions.
I appreciate any input, VERY much, thank you.
