Curio Cabinets / July 18, 2018 / Jeanne Goulet
Other times you can get newer models of curio cabinets that are relatively cheap but look like they should cost a small fortune. Obviously I prefer the latter. I want a cheap cabinet that looks like I spent a lot of money on it. Just because it is cheap does not I want it to fall apart. When I want something cheap I want something that is still durable and functional. Lower price does not equate to falling apart. I want something that will last and last and last. I do not think anyone wants to buy something that will fall apart no matter the cost. You can get curio cabinets at almost any retail store department store and often you can get lucky and find them at secondhand stores and rummage sales.
These space saving curios take up much less space than some of their larger counterparts and because they are smaller less material is used during construction which makes the price much more affordable. 2. What material should your new cabinet be made from? There are many different materials used in the production of modern furniture. Some curios are made from metal while others are mostly glass with a wooden frame. The most popular curios are made from solid hard woods. One very important thing to note about these hard woods such as cherry is that over time they will darken to a deep rich red. This is natural but should be considered because you would not want your new piece of furniture to clash with your other decor in the years to come.
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.
