Step two of our ceiling project was adding the polyurethane coat to the wood. I have to admit, after we finished staining the wood, I began having second thoughts about the whole plan. I mean, I liked the color, but I just wasn't thrilled about how the wood looked. And if I didn't like how the wood looked sitting on some sawhorses in my garage, I didn't think things would change when it was on the ceiling. Enter the polyurethane.
The polyurethane soothed my troubled heart and made everything all better. Amazing what a can of toxic, highly aromatic chemicals can do. With a nice sheen on it, the wood is looking great and I'm pretty excited to see how it looks on the ceiling. I hope I'm still excited about it after it goes up. Installation day is this Saturday (anyone want to help?) so we'll see how it all turns out.
