A Guest Bedroom Transformed With Sauder Furniture

This post is brought to you by Sauder. All ideas and opinions are my own

Mr. B and I are doing all that we can to make his mother feel at home while she is living with us.  We are lucky in that we have two guest bedrooms and we let her choose which one she wanted to make hers.  She choose the one in the finished basement. It is big, has a full bathroom attached and allows her some privacy.

As you can see from the before photo, the bed was pretty boring. It was just a bed really. Mr. B & I have plans for when she finds her own place to go with a world traveler theme in the room.  Perfect theme for guests, right? We had been searching for just the right headboard and then, I was contacted by Sauder offering to send me something from their website. We've had Sauder in our home in the past and have always loved the quality and durability of their products.  We've had desks and bookcases from Sauder but have never really looked into other types of furniture pieces.  Well, after looking through their site for about 10 minutes, we found the headboard we had been searching for!  Who knew? Sauder carries all kinds of bedroom furniture!  Headboards, nightstands, you name it!  In addition, they also have pieces for bathrooms, dining rooms and garages! Whatever room in the house, Sauder is sure to have something to suit your needs and style.

The headboard we wanted for this room needed to be in a warm tone and had a rustic feel to it. The Carson Forge headboard met our wants and then some!A Guest Bedroom Transformed With Sauder Furniture
I don't know how Sauder did it but, it looks and feels like real wood! I mean it is is wood but we were not expecting this high of quality. And, it is not flimsy, take my word for it!  It took Mr. B & I both to get the box down the stairs.

All of the pieces are clearly marked so putting it together was a snap!

And, Mr. B wanted me to make sure I mentioned that he likes that they used metal cams.

The instructions provided were clear and easy to understand. We've put together our share of assemble it yourself furniture and this was by far the fastest and easiest piece we have ever done.  No cussing needed!

And the frosting on the cake?  Mr. B's mother LOVES it too!  She just can't get over how much it makes her room feel more finished, warm and comfortable.

I am so happy to have found out that Sauder creates such wonderful pieces outside of the standard bookcase or other organizational furniture! It's nice to know that they also have available such wonderfully stylish furniture to create the room/ home of your dreams!

  10. Wow, what a transformation. We used Sauder, but I didn't know they made such pieces and I'm really impressed with this head board. I will definitely consider them for more than bookshelves and desks now.
