Moved into a house with a pine staircase, it appears that the previous owners were in the middle of finishing/refinishing the steps (some stairs appear to have a clear coat and others appear to be just sanded.) We would like to save the steps(stain),but unsure how to proceed. Any and all help/advise would be appreciated.
I would sand all of these steps and give one same finish for all. That would give them same look that You could choose by Yourself. With proper equipement and little time it can be done in few hours plus time for hardening for any finish.
I lack proper English vocabulary, so I will not go into specific terms. I bet anyone from some big store will help You to choose proper materials/equipement.
