100 ur old Maine camp with new pine walls

8 days ago

Design dilemma: what to do about new Pine wall siding blending in with 100 year old pine walls. Recently renovated the bathroom to make it more usable and installed the same novelty siding that was on one of the walls from 1920. The problem is the existing pine boards are a deep brownish reddish hue and the new pine walls are not. What should we do to make them look more blended? Paint them- whitewash or totally covered so the knots don’t show through? I’ve done some research on staining or trying to make the new wood look like the old and it seems like that would be a challenge although I’m not afraid of a challenge if it would look good! Appreciate any of your thoughts design ideas and recommendations thanks!
