The head and foot boards are put together and Joel is applying one of the coats of polyurethane to them. I think he went with a total of three coats. Not sure you could actually put enough coats of anything on them to protect them completely from our crazy, active boys.
Here they are all stained and poly'd up. Moved them inside to make more room in the garage for Joel to work. Plus it lessens the chance of the boys running into them while in and out of the garage themselves. Aren't they pretty?
