When looking for a vintage treasure, there are good finds and then there are great finds. I’ve only come across a few really, really great finds and today I’m sharing one of those– a nearly mint condition Drexel campaign dresser.
I love campaign furniture. Like really love it. Finding it in Utah is pretty difficult but finding quality campaign furniture is more than difficult. It like never happens. At least not for me. And believe me folks, I’ve looked long and hard.
That’s why when I spotted this beauty on an online classified site (KSL.com for you locals), it was worth the 45 minute drive to another county to pick it up. Not a scratch, I tell you. It’s solid wood, heavy, and though it is small, it’s perfect for Ruby’s future big girl room. I paid $120 for it.
*Tip: solid wood furniture often has the brand of the maker on the inside of one of the drawers.
I plan to paint it, but for now it will remain carefully packed in storage until I plan the rest of her new room.
Next up this vintage milk glass cake plate. I have a thing for milk glass. And for cake plates. So naturally, this was a no-brainer. I picked up this beauty at an estate sale for $30. The thing weighs a ton– no hollow glass here.
It’s my new favorite and if you come to my house during the holidays, expect to see it in use with a big, moist chocolate cake (have I mentioned how much I loathe the word moist? Bleh).
Up tomorrow I’m sharing one of the projects I used for the BHG Stylemakers Challenge. I love it very much and friends, it’s simple and cheap– fist pump!
