Have you ever been in Campaign furniture heaven? It's a beautiful place full of vintage furniture pieces with Campaign Hardware everywhere. My home is temporarily that place. Although I wish they could all stay here forever, unfortunately I can't keep all the furniture pieces that I love. Bummer! Oh well, while all these beautiful pieces of campaign furniture are in my house I will gaze at them and pet them as much as I can. Until I refinish them and find them new homes and only then will I cry.
This week I was lucky enough to score three pieces of furniture from the same line via Craigslist. I immediately contacted the seller and made arrangements for pick up that same evening. When you find amazing pieces like this you have to move quickly because they are hard to come by and when they do , they go FAST!
A little while back I also found a nightstand and a side table both with slightly different hardware on them. The nightstand I also found via Craigslist and the living room table I found while thrift shopping.
The three pieces that I bought together consist of a dresser with 7 drawers, a 3 drawer chest with a removable hutch and an awesome trunk or chest whatever you want to call it. The trunk is amazing! It has a drawer on the bottom which needs fixing and the top opens upwards and it holds itself up in place. It is missing a couple corner brackets but not to worry I am going to replace them. It also has pulls on the sides. It is just a stunning piece! A couple of the drawers on the dresser need fixing too. Hopefully it won't be too much work. All the pieces have dings and scratches that need patching.
Can you tell I love the trunk, it's already sitting at the foot of our bed and I really want to keep it (sigh!). The nightstand I originally purchased to use by my bedside but it's a little short. I was thinking of adding feet to it to make it taller but now I'm not so sure that I want to do that. I might just fix it and sell it too. The side table is living in my living room. It's very deep so it has ample space to put things on top of and the drawer is a nice little place to stash things like magazines and remote controls... I have a basket underneath it that is the perfect size and it holds some board games. So that piece is staying for now.
I'm still not sure what colors I'm going to paint them. A while back I painted a campaign dresser in a glossy Kelly Green and it was a big hit. It sold right away and I had a lot of people inquiring about it. So I'm not sure if I should do another similar piece.
I also love how my white campaign desk looks. I feel like white is a classic color for this style furniture.

I'm so excited that I scored all these beautiful campaign pieces. Since I have a few of them, I'm glad I get to play around with colors. I hope they turn out as beautiful as I envision them. It's going to be hard to let these babies go but hopefully whoever ends up buying these will love them as much as I do already.
