Last weekend I was doing some general housework and I cleaned and polished this small table.
The furniture polish I use is a quantity of the cheapest vegetable oil I can find with a few drops of essential oil to create a pleasant odour. I use either lemon or lavender oil. I put a small amount of this mixture on a soft cloth (old t-shirts are good) and apply to the timber then rub it in and buff.
I washed and ironed the doilies and then replaced the ornaments.
I love this table which I have had for about 20 years and all of the ornaments are special to me.
I keep most things fairly simple but do not subscribe to the minimalist style of an almost bare room.
I prefer the mantra of, “Keep only those things which you use or love”. These are things that I love.
