Default cedar walls need refinishing

hi:
trying to refinish cedar in bathroom which was originally finished with polyurthane. It is showing the bemps and scuffs from the years. Tried to just sand out scuffs but everything is still showing. Do i have to sand out all of the cedar before applying anything - this will be very labor intensive and am wondering if there is anything else i can do. thanks

Shortcuts always come back to haunt you. Cedar is beautiful when done well so I would recommend that you talk to this guy...

I think it would be a little easier to strip with a chemical stripper. polyurethane varnish is difficult to repair or sand.
