Take a Long Drive With Me

Somehow we made it to California.
And then I realized that I left my camera in Seattle.

I WANTED to share my awesome desk makeover that I am working on, but since I left my camera in WASHINGTON, I guess I can't. Boo. I'll be able to show you the after some time, but suffice it to say that I bought this desk a while ago and it was this totally uggo ivory/green color with dark green on the details, and a mismatched chair with ugly mauve velvet cloth on the seat. The ugliness has been bothering me for the longest time. Finally, today, I had had it. And now, it is a delicious white. YUM. I'm going to reupholster the seat with some cute canvas. I also got new drawer pulls - they're LION HEADS. Way too cool, hahaha.

Umm, not much to say, sorry. I really want to get one of these:
For my new room, to use as storage and a room divider - hopefully I can cram everything I want into my room! Hahaha.

Also, does anyone know anything about smells? I have an old dresser that I really like, but it smells SOOOO awful. It's this old, musty, grandma's-basement kind of smell. Anyone know how to get rid of it? I'm going to try to put cedar blocks in it and probably spray it with bleach...

That's all for now, xoxo!

  1. Try stuffing it with crumbled up newspaper, just leave it like that for a few days, and that should take care of the smell.
    If not, try spraying some white vinegar, the smelliness of the vinegar shouldn't last long at all, and it should neutralize the smell.

    Good luck!
