I am hoping there is someone here with experience....
I bought bamboo screening to put around our spa a few summers ago. It was smoked bamboo, so dark in colour. I varnished it on advice from the shop where I bought it, as they said this would protect the bamboo from sun damage.
It hasn't. The varnish is peeling off and the bamboo underneath is a light colour.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
My first thought was to sand back the varnish and re-appy (or maybe use a linseed oil and oil it each summer instead of varnish?) Has anyone else had the same thing happen?
