The next step is to spray furniture dusting polish onto a clean dusting cloth. When cleaning the wood you must be certain to make use of only approved dusting agents for oak wood. Making use of a good non-silicone or non-wax agent is recommended. This will not only get rid of dust from your oak curio but also eradicate fingerprints as well. The cloth should be of the micro-fiber kind. This will assist in dusting as well as polish and clean the wood at the same time. The third step is even if you do not make use of a micro-fiber cloth you should utilize a cloth that is lint-free soft and clean. Make certain that you totally dry the wood after dusting as moisture can harm the oak curio cabinet.
A wall mounted curio cabinet provide a way to display our precious keepsakes. Curio cabinets have been around for many years and are themselves collectible as antique furniture pieces. Curios come in a variety of styles and types so you are certain to find one that compliments the overall design and décor of your room. They can be both plain and fancy. They are not always rectangular boxes they can have curves arches and flat backs. They create a focal point for any room while gracefully displaying your valuable collection. This piece will draw the attention of your guests just like any other fine piece of treasured art. You will experience pride and joy that comes with ownership of such beauty and elegance.
When you are filling a curio cabinet with small collectibles you will want to employ some of the same ideas as with the bookcases. Having a lot of empty space between shelves and displaying only tiny objects is not very interesting. In curios you can make use of a mirrored back wall or a brightly colored back wall that will coordinate with your room and displays or even a wallpapered back wall either a texture or a print that will compliment the arrangement. Consider using display risers for smaller objects that you wish to show off like those you see in department stores. Container stores sell these risers and you can find lucite frame stands in the framing department of craft stores.
