Campaign Dresser



I purchased this campaign dresser from Craig's List.  I love the color peacock and was waiting for the right piece to come along.  I thought this piece in my entryway would look good in a bold color.  I chose Martha Stewart's Plumage color matched in Behr's Paint and Primer in One.  I gave it a final coat of Minwax Polycrylic for protection.



I used Rub 'n Buff in Antique Gold on the hardware.  Rub 'n Buff works wonders; it's truly magical.


Before.


After.

Fantastic transformation. Love the color and the hardware. It looks like a completely different piece of furniture, but then that is the point, right? lol

stellar junk said...

LOVE this piece. Nice work!!!

grapevine said...

Fantastic! I have this campaign chest stored many season's in my garage in a glossy apple green (children's playroom). Wonder if I could strip & repaint? Apt to have funky garage storage scent...kids are in 40's! Will paint-strip help?

Kahli said...

I love it! Great job again Katie! That is a lovely shade of blue!

Wow, that is amazing! I never seem to find good-stuff like this dresser in my small town (area) of NW IL. It's like everyone wants "fixed up" prices for their broken things because they know people search for "before" stuff to redo.

Nice job!

You have done a great job on the chest of drawers and mirror. Interesting way you have trimmed it - I really like it. Very clever. I have just posted a reborn shabby chic chair on my blog today - I really enjoyed doing it. What is your next project?
