I came across this little campaign style chest, and fell in love with the patina. The wood is just fabulous.
I feel like maybe this chest was handmade, but I couldn’t say for sure. There aren’t runners for the drawers (though they slide in and out just fine). The detail on the back makes me not want to put it against a wall.
It does have an issue. It grew. No, really. The wood separated on the sides and top. Ok, so maybe it didn’t grow, but that’s what it looks like!
I can’t quite figure it out. But it has a similar issue (gap between boards) on the opposite side, as well as on top. I like to think of it as character, but I would think it could be fixed if this piece were to be painted (or stained) – then you wouldn’t have to worry about matching the wood.
It measures 18″d x 38″w x 32″h.
This little beauty needs a home! You can find it in the Pursuing Vintage Shop for now!~Kristen
