I bought two very heavy, thick mahogany sidelight windows from Craig's List and had them painted and installed as doors on my upstairs linen closet. I still need to install handles. Or at least make a decision about handles.

So rather than wait decades for my copper flashing to achieve a beautiful patina I decided to force the issue by applying Miracle Gro. All I did was rub a strong concentration of Miracle Gro on the copper and it immediately started turning "Statue of Liberty Green". Less than 10 minutes.

So whenever we have guests over no one can ever find the garbage can in the kitchen because of course it is hidden behind a cabinet. So I found this peel and stick removable sign. Problem solved.
It is a wee bit bigger than I wanted but will do for now.
