I'm Campaigning


I saw this cute bedroom posted yesterday and noticed the blue dresser. I love it.

Then I remembered seeing in green somewhere too

Then I even remember that Jenny from Little Green Notebook found a treasure of her own with this baby



Jealous much? I am. I love this and it would be perfect for the BF's office. I would love a piece of Campaign Furniture!

Does it hold files? Check, in the drawers.
Does it hold books? Check, on the shelves.
Can it hide other crap? Check, in the other drawers.

I need something like this- anyone have any ideas? I like the Jenny kind of deals, you know the $45 kind puh-lease!

She does get the most AMAZING deals, doesn't she??? I'd like to score some deals like that too!!

I love campaign furniture too, but sadly I know of no deals. Sorry! But I like your thinking of putting something like that in an office!

Good luck!

Me, oh me oh me! I want one too. They are too cute, it would look perfect in the dining room. Drool.

Thanks for the link love!!

Try searching for "campaign" "campaigner" or just "vintage dresser" (if you have about two years to peruse CL!). Also, some of the better versions are made by Baker and Drexel, so it's worth searching for those names in CL too, just in case the seller doesn't know the style name, but has seen the maker's mark inside the drawers.

Good luck! I hope you find a good one!

for some reason I passed on a Baker campaign chest at auction last year. it was so pretty but I didn't really have a place for it (and I'd already spent the cash I brought). should have written a check for that bad boy! STUPID STUPID STUPID!

I love campaign pieces. I really hope you find the perfect one for the bf's office! I'll keep my fingers crossed and my eyes peeled.

I totally lucked in on a campaign dresser last week for $50 at a furniture surplus/warehouse hole-in-the-wall kind of place. So excited! I blogged a little about it today but can't get good picture bec. it's currently in my dark garage waiting to be painted. Think I'm going green. Love that Lonny pic!

Linds, I really, really hope you find one! I am so in love with the green one from Lonny! I wish I had some tips for you (maybe Jenny can keep an eye out, she *does* seem to have incredible luck!) :-)

This would be a great addition to any room. My favorite is the green one!

my favorite and my best said...

they are very cool. i have tried looking on CL here to no avail.
great idea for the office though!!
good luck.

Keri said...

those are really cute!

Haven and Home said...

I wish I could help you but I never seem to get that lucky!

Blueprint Bliss said...

I'm with Marianne. Birmingham's CL is not very good!

paula said...

I would love to have one too, maybe one day.

SogniSorrisi said...

These are gorgeous. Fingers crossed you find the one you're looking for!

CER said...

i am in complete agreement. i was trying to detach myself from campaign furniture for so long, since i've started to see it so often -- but i'd be lying if i said i didn't just spend an hour on craiglist scouring for any hidden gems..! oy..

Southern Aspirations said...

me too me too! Wonder if one could take a plain Jane dresser and add to it to make it Campaign style??

Katie said...

yes, please!
