Old musty smell in chest of drawers

I have a really lovely old chest of drawers for my daughters room but I can't get rid of the musty smell inside the drawers. I've tried putting them out in the sun and using cedar blocks but nothing has worked. I'm on the verge of having to get rid of them because I obviously don't want to put my dd clothes in the drawers smelling as they do. It would be a huge shame to have to get rid of them as I've literally spent hours and hours restoring them but if the smell doesn't go they will have to go.
Does anybody have any suggestions???
