A Post about campaigns – Campaign Chests, that is

Can we all agree that we’re relieved the presidential election is over? But let’s talk about how awesome campaigns are – campaign dressers!

I’ve been on the hunt for a campaign dresser for a few months now. One day Simon came home from work and said that he thought the TV looked shabby sitting on the hearth. And I have no issue with that. But the problem became twofold: (1) we don’t have anything to put the TV back on as I’ve rearranged furniture and am using the buffet in the entryway and (2) we now have a larger TV so it wouldn’t fit on the old buffet anyway.

Can I just tell you that it is easier to find a needle in a haystack than it is to find a campaign chest? Well, a campaign dresser, really. Chests, desks, and nightstands  can be found with relative ease, but the dressers are few and far between. Luckily I stumbled on Etsy shop ExeterFields who ever-so-kindly emailed me when they finally came upon a dresser.  She’s even going to paint it in any custom color I prefer. How great is that?

So that leads me to my new dilemma. What color to paint it?

Here’s the room that it’s going in — there’s definitely a lot of colors we could choose from.

Obviously the “safe” route would be to paint it white or cream. But I find myself drawn to doing navy, pale green or maybe a mint. Check out these super-lame photoshopped mockups. Please note that we will have everything painted, w/ the exception of the brass hardware, obvs. I just didn’t want to take the time to outline every single piece of the hardware, so I focused on only the drawers.

What do you think? What color should we go with?
