What Houzz contributors are saying:
Be SystematicStart sifting through your cupboards and bookshelves. If you need to pack up a room or two, now is a great time to assess what’s lurking in the back of your cabinets. Pack frequently used items into transparent storage boxes. Label them clearly and move them to another room. They’ll be out of the way of dust and builders, but still easily accessible.Items used less often can be packed in cardboard boxes and stored out of the way. Pack them carefully and label each box with the general contents. It’s a great idea to take photos of the box and label in its new location, so you can easily find things during the renovation or when you’re unpacking after the work is complete.
2. Jadeite. The pale mint green of jadeite glassware shouts spring. Jadeite was mass produced by glassware companies during the Depression as an affordable alternative to pricier dishes and kitchenware. Produced from the early 19th century through today, jadeite can vary widely in price. Midcentury pieces from well-known makers like Fire King are most common and have the benefit of being heat resistant.
