We have a tongue and groove ceiling that has a few water stains on it. Is there any way to get rid of them or at least minimize the appearance? Thanks!

1. Has the leak been fixed? If not, no sense covering up the stains as you'll just get more.

2. If its painted, then apply a stain-blocking primer like Kilz or BIN. Then paint. Regular primers and paints will not hide the stains.

Yes, the leak has been fixed. The wood has already been stained a clear light oak color and we just need to try and get rid of the stains and maybe try to put another coat of the same stain on it. It would be really easy to hide if we were just painting a solid color over it!!
