I love my campaign dresser. After rescuing it from a thrift shop last February, it has proudly served its purpose in my dressing room and in the near future will become baby girl's changing table. Since buying the dresser I've left it as-is and only polished up the brass handles a bit with some Brasso. I truly love its original wood facade and think it works perfectly in the otherwise very neutral nursery.
I've also pinned plenty of other gorgeous examples of campaign dressers being used and loved in their original wood states:
But just for fun, I got thinking about what the nursery could look like maybe, possibly, one-day in the distant future for baby #2 if I were to paint my dresser anywhere from robin's egg blue, to gray, to white, or even a tone-on-tone white and wood look. Could be fun.
Like I said, I'm definitely not going to attempt to tackle a project like that in the next 5 1/2 weeks but it is something to consider for the future. And its fun to design rooms from the comfort of your computer chair without ever having to pick up a sander or a paintbrush don't ya think?
