I have a storage issue in my house.  Or maybe I have too much stuff.  One and the same, right?  Anyway, there are not enough closets or cupboards or drawers to keep everything.  As a result, I am constantly shifting piles of stuff.  Currently all of my fine china and crystal is stashed on the landing to my basement.  A perilous situation.  Long story short, in a a fit of redecorating, I got rid of the hutch that was holding it all.  I didn’t have a replacement piece of furniture.

BUT NOW I DO!  How excited am I??!  VERY!!! Can you tell?!

Not only is my new find a great storage solution, it is SO classic and totally design current!  Are you ready?  Want to see it?!

Campaign Dresser

My new campaign dresser is the perfect fit for my open-plan dining room.  It has drawers for my china and linens.  And a great top surface that I can put a lamp on and work on my “styling” technique.  It is a funky gold/mustard color right now, but I’m dying to paint it.  I just got rid of all my gold and “fall colors” that I used to decorate in (posts about that process coming soon!), so I really don’t want to regress.  I’m thinking either a coral color or an indigo/inky blue.  I’m worried that the coral is too “daring” for me, and that it might blend too much with my reddish wood floors.  Really leaning toward the blue.  What do you think?

Lots of people are painting their campaign furniture right now, so there’s a lot of inspiration out there.  Great ideas on functionality and how to style it.

I love the green!  The tassels are fun, too.

Bright white! Used as a traditional dresser.

The two-tone is really fun.  Probably not right for my house, but a really neat idea.  (I like this shade of blue).

Isn’t this little piece cute?  I like this blue, too.


So much inspiration!  I can’t wait to get started!
