I have been loving all the campaign dressers I have been seeing in the design world lately. It started with this much blogged about green beauty in Lonny Magazine.
Then I saw the gorgeous redo over at Emily A. Clark,
then another in Joi’s home at Nuestra Vida Dulce.
This got me started on my own campaign to own a campaign, (sorry cheesy). As an already religious Craigslist searcher I added finding one to my list of daily searches. It surprisingly didn't take that long, yesterday it happened.

I found not just a dresser but a matching nightstand for; I hope you’re sitting down…$30 for both! I seriously could not call fast enough. I thought any moment the seller would realize he had left a 0 or two off the price. I dragged my just gone to bed, not fully functioning, husband out of bed (he works nights) and dashed over to pick them up. They have a couple places that could use some work and the brass desperately needs to be polished but for the most part they are amazing. Beautiful wood, amazing dovetail detailing, a brand from a famous furniture maker, I cannot contain how excited I am about this find!! Now I have to decide what I want to do to them. Just fix the couple of blemishes and leave them as they are? Creamy white? A fun pop of color? I guess they will stay as they are until I make up my mind. Here they are in my home in all their not yet cleaned up, not styled, temporary location, glory. Stay tuned for the reveal...once I know what I will be revealing.
