Campaign Campaign

You know how sometimes you just wanna body slam yourself for walking away from something you should have bought??

Your standing there looking at the most epic deal of the century and you say something stupid to yourself like

"Oh I am so over this" 

or 

"this is so trendy I am gonna find something better"

Well,  I have been kicking myself in the teeth for the past month after I STUPIDLY walked away from a campaign style , white, 6 drawer dresser for $30 bucks. 

Yes you heard me right,
I WALKED AWAY FROM A CAMPAIGN DRESSER THAT WAS $30 MOTHA-LICKIN DOLLARS

Why you ask????

Cause I am a dip shit.....that's why

Thanks to Pinterest I have my face rubbed in it everyday.

  3. Well now I'm educated about 'campaign style' via your pics I see and feel your pain. BUT, WTF with the language? (LOL) I thought Aussies were renown for an eye-popping cuss but boy I learning from you fast Amber! I'm not offended; far from it - just intrigued in different countries swearing standards! (There's a moral blog post in there for someone, but not from me!!)

  6. You'll have a second (and third and fourth) chance and they will be even better! Love campaign and we have three pieces in our home and we still are finding more, but I don't want the house to be full of campaign stuff :)

  9. I found a campaign style shelving unit at salvation army for $100 but I have no vehicle to transport it so I had to let it go. Still hurts man...You will find another if you keep searching and next time you'll know to snatch it!

  10. Oh no, that is not good! I think they are classics. You will find one again, I am sure of it!

  11. Weird, I had never heard of this style before and now I found this: http://guffonline.blogspot.com/2011/10/mahogany-campaign-desk.html
    It's a local store known for their good prices.

  12. This happens to me a LOT because I am too cheap for words. I don't think it through all the way until it is too late and I was being the world's biggest tightwad fool. I passed up a pair of gorgeous camel colored Barcelona chairs for nothing only to later find the same ones in an antique store for a million dollars. Boo.

  13. I hate it when that happens :) But it must be pretty easy to DIY with a simple dresser, some T-braces, some L-braces (hardware store) some gold spray paint and pulls (google online sources). It's a little more work, I admit, but it might save your behind from all that kicking :)

  17. Ah that blows...on the silver lining side it's affirmed that you really love them and have to find another one...and that one will be even better!!!
