Sauder Home Living Room Makeover

08 October 2015

It's frustrating to think about how we've struggled with our living room space since we moved in two years ago. I personally didn't see the apartment before we signed the lease, my husband's accounts of it weren't exactly on point when he relayed everything to me, and there's only so much pictures can tell you. So, I bought a bunch of furniture with what I thought would fit, and later found out it did not work for our awkwardly sized living room. A year later I ditched the bulky pieces but still found myself in a rut when it came to the space. That is, until this summer came around and Sauder asked if I had a room that needed a little love. Obviously, I jumped on board and picked out my favorite pieces with a little help from my muse, Shavonda. 

I had some reservations with my picks at first, mainly because I was nervous about sizing in the tiny place but I was beyond elated after I saw everything put together and in place. Of course, I have a little more work to do, like a new rug and a cover for the lumbar pillow, but it's falling into place flawlessly. For once I feel like it's the way it's supposed to be. 

Ok, let's talk about the pieces that won me over...

 The Nilsen Accent Chair has to be my favorite piece. I don't know if it's because of how it pops against our berry-hued wall or the fact that it's just the right size for the corner. I love it. The Anywhere Media Console is amazing, you wouldn't believe the amount of storage it has and the Vanishing Drawer™ hides components behind flip-up front makes it the perfect place for my printer and dvd player - out of sight until I need them. I was nervous it was too rustic, but now I can't imagine anything taking it's place. Lastly, the Round Side Table pulls everything together. It keeps our bohemian aesthetic yet still looks polished.
