It suggested to use dishwater with mild dish detergent. After you wipe down each section, it said to dry it thoroughly with a soft towel. You don't ever want to leave water on wood. I think we all know that. Then it suggested to use lemon oil with a few coats. I used only one coat. I thought it was fine. After a few hours I wiped down the excess oil. The next morning I wiped it off again with a clean soft towel.
I can really see a difference.
Also I took a pic with all of my tea cups inside the china cabinet. I still have to look around for some doilies though. I washed up all of my cups and placed them inside the china cabinet. I asked my husband if it looked like a granny's china cabinet. He said it did. Because that's what I want it to look like.
I think this will be so nice. I'll be able to pick and choose what tea cup I'd like to use for my afternoon tea. After that I'll just quickly wash everything and set it back into the china cabinet. I'll be able to choose a different tea cup ever day. I love tea time. ♥ It gives me a little while to take a break during a busy day. It's nice. ☺
I look forward to adding to my tea cup collection in the future.
I think that it would be neat for my grandchildren to remember my tea cup collection. "Remember grandma's tea cup collection?" Whether their boys or girls. They wouldn't be worth anything but maybe they would like to keep them in memory of me. That would be nice. Not that I'm planning on leaving any time soon, lol.
Last night my husband and I had a tea party for two. He's sick so he didn't mind. I asked if he wanted tea and he said that he would. So I made up a tray of tea. I bought a plastic tray to set my tea essentials on. Cups, tea pot, spoons, etc.
So we had a tea party for two. I even put honey on the tray for my hubby because he's still sick. He said he liked it all and wanted more tea tonight. So tonight we will be having another tea party for two. ♥
Well I hope you all are having a nice weekend. It rained all weekend here but that it fine with me. Think spring. Happy Lord's Day! ☺
