I'm not really sure where to put this but it seems like this might be the right place. I'm thinking of putting knotty pine on the currently open ceiling in my basement workshop. I've done enough drywall in my life and don't want to deal with the mess, not to mention it would be near impossible to empty the shop for the sanding.
I'd like the pine to stay light and natural without darkening or ambering. If I put a waterborne clear on it would it prevent it from darkening over time? There's no windows in that part of the basement so no sunlight, only my T8 led's.
