Grayish/Black Stains on Pine Wood

February 13, 2008

We recently received a shipment of raw pine tongue-and-groove paneling from Arkansas, and found that it had been exposed to rain or moisture during shipping. Several of the boards have grayish/black water stain. At first we were alarmed, but found that our local home improvement store is selling pine tongue-and-groove with the same gray marks. We would like to know if there is a way to remove these stains, or at least get some advice on how they can be stained without the spots showing through. Our preference is not to use an extremely dark stain on the ceiling. Any ideas?
