Vintage Campaign Dresser Comes to the Cottage

Pin It

Lookie what I found this weekend! Isn't she a beaut? I've been drooling over campaign furniture for a couple years now. Finally, I found a vintage campaign dresser for the cottage!



Why would I want a campaign dresser? Check out my Campaign Furniture pinboard on Pinterest...

 Here are some of my favorites from the Campaign Furniture pinboard...

Aren't they gorgeous? They are the perfect inspirations for figuring out what I'll be doing with my beautiful dresser. It definitely needs some freshening up! It might not get painted until the spring/summer, but that doesn't mean I can plan ahead!




If this were your dresser, what room would you use it in and what color would you paint it? 

P.S. Tomorrow, I'll show you where I currently have it!

P.P.S. Do any of you have a campaign dresser pinboard? If so, please let me know! I'd love to follow it!

  1. if i were to put it in my guestroom i would paint it a dark navy blue, but if i were to put it in my room i would paint it weddgewood gray by ben moore. i painted one that color last summer and it was just before we moved so i sold it and i regret it!!!! i loved that piece!!!!!! yours is a great size to even use as a sideboard. awesome score, amy!

  4. Ooh. Great find!!! Hmmm. I'd use it in my family room and paint it pure white. I know, I live on the edge. :) I'd also use some Silver Rub n' Buff on the brass but only because I have a crush on silver in my home. The aged brass is otherwise gorgeous.

  6. Oh, it's supercool! Although it's not a really creative idea, I would use it in the bedroom as a dresser. I like it white but I also like the pic of the one with different color drawers. It would look good two-toned too (maybe nautical blue and white or a pale grey and white). Can't wait to see what you do with it.

  7. I like it like it is! Or maybe brighter white or French Grey or...too many choices! ;-)
