Question Sun damaged pine wood walls

The basement of my house has all pine wood walls. When we installed the wood 2 years ago we put a UV protectant coating on them to keep them from darkening. We recently sold our house and have to move out by May 1st. Last night we started taking things off the walls and guess what??? The walls darkened dramatically. You can see exactly where a picture or anything else was hanging. The spot on the wall that had something covering it up is much much lighter. Is there anything we can do to blend it with the rest of the wall? The coloring of the pine varies piece by piece so blending would work good if we knew how to do it. Please help!!!

I am pretty sure we used a minwax UV protective coating (poly.) No we did not stain before applying. We liked the natural look of the pine wood. Any ideas on this would be great!! Thanks in advance

To change the color of the wood would require stripping off finish, sanding, staining, and refinishing. Hopefully the new owner will hang pictures in the same place or decide to paint the walls. All wood changes color due to exposure to light. In time the affected areas will change color too.

Pine darkens with exposure to light, UV protection notwithstanding.
