Yesterday I got the rest of the cabinet washed and I got the biggest paint scuffs off with a Magic Eraser. The wood grain is now visible, even on some smaller parts that looked like they were just solid, dark brown. I didn't get any pictures and my next job is to start oiling the wood (we all feel better after a bath when we put lotion on, right?) I'm using a recipe that someone's grandmother gave her and she posted on Ravelry (Rav has everything!): 1/3 cup vegetable oil and 1 tsp bottled lemon juice. You can also use olive oil, but Logan loves olive oil with every whisker of his being. I don't think the cabinet needs a tongue bath. I've mixed up a big batch of it and will start rubbing it into the cabinet, drawers, and underbelly. I will also get some knitting done today that I can show on the blog tomorrow.
