Have you ever purchased furniture online?
Prior to this campaign with Sauder, I hadn’t, but I’m pleased to say that it’s a very easy process – much easier than driving from store to store to find exactly the piece I want!
Sauder is a brand I trust, having purchased pieces before, but always in-store. Sauder makes a wide variety of designs and styles that cost a lot less than you think, giving you the freedom to furnish your home at a fraction of the cost; Sauder believes furniture should be affordable without sacrificing style or quality.
The first step of the online ordering process was to select a piece. I was able to view different styles and pieces at Sauder.com – even go through a style quiz. According to the quiz, my personal style is Contemporary, so I started there when looking for the perfect piece for my home. That was a fun process (who doesn’t love online quizzes?), but it led me to a collection of dark wood office furniture, not exactly what I was hoping for in this challenge.
I don’t have an office; I work from an armchair in the living room.
I just created a small bedroom upstairs with the girls’ clothes and a single bed, and I’m starting to put together a playroom upstairs and a school/craft room downstairs. I wanted a piece that would work in any of those rooms, as space allowed.
I found just what I wanted in this pretty white dresser:
I could think of at least 5 ways to use it, but I’ll share more on those ideas in another post.
The ordering process was quick and easy, and the dresser arrived in short order. It came in two packages – both very heavy – a sign that this was a piece of furniture designed to last a long time!
Joe and the girls put it together easily following the included instructions, assembling the frame first and then the drawers.
Then the dresser was finished. The girls immediately filled it with toys and games, topping it with a memory box (full of Grandma memories), perfume, and a favorite lamp. Since it was in their space, I left the accessorizing up to them.
The drawers slide easily, making it perfect for little hands.
I wish I could show you a picture straight on, but there’s a bookshelf in the way. The dresser is pretty, just as nice as in the Sauder photo (although that one drawer is misaligned by a hair, as you can see in the photo above).
I didn’t call, but it’s worth mentioning that Sauder’s Ohio-based customer service is available during normal business hours at 1-800-523-3987. Making sure their customers are happy with their purchases is their highest priority.
The Sauder Woodworking Co. is North America’s leading producer of ready-to-assemble furniture and the nation’s fifth-largest residential furniture manufacturer. An authentic American original, Sauder manufactures 90 percent of its furniture in Archbold, Ohio — right where the company started in 1934.
