I came across this little campaign style chest, and fell in love with the patina.  The wood is just fabulous.

Primitive Campaign Chest

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!

Side Primitive Campaign Dresser

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!
