Interior Redwood Paneling

I have redwood paneling throughout livingroom and family room. It has never been painted or stained. However, it is 50 years old. It is a little dull and in places where pictures were hung or shelving placed, the wood is discolored.

Is there a way to bring back the paneling, make it brighter, even out the color issues? For instance, sanding? or would i just be wasting my time doing anything to it?

If you have some way to sand it all, that may help balance the color. Usually redwood freshens well with some light sanding. Consider that some of the effects of aging go deeper than others. It may be possible to even out the color after sanding by bleaching with Oxalic Acid.

Hope this helps.
