I’ve been talking about updating my office recently, and while it’s definitely not yet complete, I did get the chance to add some new additions that I think make a pretty sweet impact.
Now, before I share with you about these two new pieces, I need to tell you that I have a slight addiction. To tables. I live in a normal-sized one-bedroom apartment and have six (6!) tables co-habitating with me. Please try to imagine that. It’s bananas I tell ya. As a moving-in present, my dad offered to buy me a little somethin’ somethin’ to spice up my new digs — a TV, he suggested. Instead, I asked for a dining table, because in addition to being the #crazydoglady, I also like to be the #crazytablelady. You know how it is.
I ordered my new pieces from Sauder and this is what they looked like when I got them:
Despite the hot mess that was my living room, they were actually pretty easy and quick to put together. The instruction manuals that came included were so detailed that I pretty much couldn’t screw anything up. I also got to use my drill, and any occasion where I get to use a drill feels like Disneyland for adults. I could seriously drill things all day long.
Anyways, first up, I got this coffee table, which I decided to turn into a little floor-pillow clad work station, since I don’t yet own a couch. I sit at my regular desk for 8+ hours a day, so having a new area where I can chill and do some work is totally awesome. I also dig the marble top to this table, to give it a little something different.
The other table I received was this handy little side table, which I paired next to my desk. Prior to this side table, I had a hideous set of open drawers where I kept my craft supplies (which will soon be relocated to a closet). I was surprised how much this table added to my office space. I think it really “classies” up the whole area and also gives me some cuter looking storage space. I’m always down for storage since I own about a zillion (more or less) useless things.
Though it was my first experience on Sauder’s site, I really liked how they laid everything out because you could search by collection, room, or product. There was also a style quiz on their site, which I obviously took because I love personality quizzes, even from furniture companies.
All in all, I’m pretty stoked about these little updates! They definitely feel like “me” and gave me that little jolt of inspiration I needed to redo the rest of my office (and living room). More to come! Have a great one, everybody. 🙂
