Current Obsession: Campaign Dressers

I have a confession to make: I’ve been keeping something from you all.  I’ve been having a love affair.  It was a slow burn for quite some time, but lately it’s become a full-on longing and NEED.  You see – I’m in love with a dresser.  A campaign dresser to be exact.  Jefe and I are actually in the market for a storage piece to replace this guy below (please excuse the horrible or should I say complete lack of styling on the dresser top) and I’d love nothing more than to bring a little campaign home.


To Jefe’s point, the campaign style doesn’t REALLY go with anything we currently have.  But that just gives me an excuse to do a little more restyling which I will obviously take an opportunity to do ;-).  Honestly, I think a deep red with some serious vintage brass hardware could work; we have plenty of red tones in our living room and adding some gold accents wouldn’t be hard.  And I’d love to bring in a quality vintage piece in to our otherwise newly furnished home.

So here’s a little ode to the other love of my life, Mr. Campaign.

A great, tall white version from Emily Henderson:

And in Emerald, one of my other many loves:

A great desk version from Centsational Girl:


I’m head over heels for this indigo version:

And here’s a great, cost-effective DIY version that’s actually an Ikea Rast hacked to campaign perfection:


So what do you guys think?  Is anyone else crushing on Mr. Campaign quite like I am?  He is VERY trendy right now, but as it is a true vintage piece, just with some updated colors, I think it could fit in to a variety of styles and spaces and not look dated 2 years from now.

Happy Saturday to you all; Jefe and I are headed out for our usual Saturday night out: Dodger Stadium!


(My stripes obsession has progressed to our bedding…. that update to come!)

  1. I have the same obsession and have had a few grace my life. I repainted a pair of nightstands and have one in my basement waiting to be painted for my son’s room. I have one I am picking up tomorrow – so excited! So happy to find another that loves the campaign dressers as much as I do.


  2. i love the campaign dresser too! i am thinking of doing one of the DIYs to something from IKEA. also, we tentatively have found an apartment, you will hear more from me soon!!


  3. This totally makes me think of (and appreciate) the small table/nightstand I have with the Asian inspired hinges. I might have to keep my paintbrushes out to get a nice accent piece going…
