How to Properly Store Wood Furniture
My wife's uncle made us a beautiful bassinet for our daughter a few years ago. It's made of red oak from his land, beautiful work on the spindles , and we absolutely love it. It's the kind of piece that will be handed down to our daughter someday (along with the red oak bed frame from my wife's step dad, and the red oak dresser and changing table from my dad).
But our daughter is nearly 3 years old, and she's obviously not sleeping in it anymore. And unfortunately, our house is fairly small. We don't have a lot of room.
We're wondering if there's a good way that we can store it and yet protect it from damage, humidity, rot, ... whatever may come.
We live in Texas, so it's hot. That may change thinking about storing in garages, attics, etc. (However, our attic has spray in expanding insulation that's adheres up above, not the standard fiberglass insulation. On summer days, I usually don't break a sweat up there unless I've been up there for an hour or so.)
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
