Alison eradicated the juvenile circle pattern that was painted poorly on this little shelf, and instead painted it with a cute little stencil she created herself with her Cricut! And I’m now convinced I need a Cricut! See it on her blog A Glimpse Inside.
What a find! Cassie got this great campaign dresser for a mere $60 at a thriftstore! She wanted a light, fun color for her bedroom so she went with a lovely aqua. I’d have to say my favorite thing about it is the inside of the drawers. Check it out on her blog Cassie and Co.
Hey, have you ever wondered WHY they call it campaign furniture?
Campaign furniture has been used by travelling armies since the time of Julius Caesar, and even earlier. With the rise and expansion of the British Empire in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, as British gentlemen came to dominate the army, the finest British furniture makers produced for this new class of traveller some of the most stylish pieces of portable furniture ever made.
British officers of high social position took it for granted that when they set out on a military campaign in Africa or India they could enjoy the same standard of living as they did at home.
