A place for everything

Yippee for places to put things.

We got it from the same second hand place V got his office set-up.  Chestnut, probably Galician.  It had a cracked countertop, but the shop fixed it.  So now my Grandmother´s well-travelled china has a place to sit.

It smells very, very strongly of old furniture, though.  I´m tryng bowls of white vinegar up top and used coffee grounds in the under cabinets.  Fingers crossed.


  1. Bicarbonate of soda is good for absorbing smells. Also leave the drawers and doors open for a few days until it settles into your new atmosphere - it sometimes helps.

  2. Trying the opening idea. Along with all the doors and windows of the house!

  3. You could try misting it with some diluted essential oils. Cloves, tea tree, thyme, lavender have anti mold properties.
