Spring Cleaning

Cabinet of Curiosities_lo
Turquoise
Spiney Pods
Dwell Mags
Burro Tail
I'm using that beautiful turquoise to paint the inner back wall
of our cabinet of curiosities. It was fun to empty it out and look at each of the little pods, shells, twigs, seeds, etc...that we've been collecting over the years.

Paint cardboard first and put it in the cupboard. I like turq too, but wood is so beautiful. You can always remove cardboard , but removing paint is a pain.

What fun! Great color, too. I'm so enjoying having my own cabinet of curiosities, though I notice it's filling up REALLY quickly these days. = )

Anonymous is so right. I have also used wallpaper to cover the back of a cabinet. I used foamcore board sized to just wedge in. It worked beautifully.

Yes, turquoise currently provides a good mood. It's not really my favorite color, but also my home, there are one or two turquoise spots.

I think I'd like to live inside your cabinet amongst your curiosities – I love turquoise too!

I'm with the cardboard suggestion (I have a thing for wood.)

That being said, your home is lovely and I think this color will fit perfectly!

The best time of the year to do some cleaning is during Spring time because I don't get that busy during that time and I always prep my self for cleaning during that time...

I never realized there was so much to spring clean. I cleaned my house for the spring, then saw this article. Needless to say, I have a ton more work ahead of me. Great article! House Cleaning Newtown, PA
