My mom gave me the campaign chest that belonged to my grandparents. It is in need of some TLC and I have no idea where to start. For now, I'm just enjoying having it. It fits perfectly in our foyer, like the space and the chest were destined to come together.
I love the coloring of it, I don't want to paint it (I know my grandfather would roll over in his grave if I did...). I just want to to do what I can to help it look as good as it can.
One thing I know I won't change, the lining of the drawers.
It is the wallpaper that my grandmother used in their home that I loved so much, and still miss. It's funny, I don't remember the wallpaper, it makes me sad that I don't. Each year goes by and memories fade.
But I'm so happy to have this piece in our home. I'll cherish it always.
