How to Make a Campaign-Style Dresser

Glossy orange paint, and campaign pulls and brackets lend a flat-pack dresser the look of traveling furniture in our One Piece, Five Ways series

Swinging campaign pulls and brackets anchor this minimalist dresser that was inspired by the 1970s revival of turn-of-the-century traveling furniture. Pushing the kickplate to the dresser front and building out the top edge with thin shelf-edge molding creates a perfectly boxy surface for brassy corner brackets—after a high-gloss coat of orange, that is.
