While a great product, Overstock didn't send me what was advertised!!! When picking out my order the desk Pictured included the extra top drawers, the stand with one shelf, and the side stand with the exterior shelves. When Constructed, the extra drawers were not included and neither was the side stand with the exterior shelves. What I did receive was a hanging file folder pull out located not at the top but about 6 inches down leaving this as unusable space as well as no other shelf to make the area below the file folders useable. The other stand has a small drawer at the top, but doesn't include any shelves or anything else to utilize the space. According to all literature that came with the desk, there are four different options for the stands of the desk. Overstock did not give the ability to opt for different stands. Because I had checked this product out on several websites and found Overstock had the best price, I was aware that there was a desk with and a desk without the extra drawers between the top and the stands. But nowhere had I come across any reference to different types of legs and what they offer in terms of storage. I am extremely disappointed with Overstock's misrepresentation of the product and want all buyers to beware what they order may not be what they get.
After reading reviews on various websites, I was somewhat hesitant about purchasing this desk, not to mention the cost. I am really glad that I decided to make the purchase. I had to replace the boxes on the side of the unit as they were very flimsy and my cats decided that they were good to pull off of the shelves and sleep in. The replacement plastic containers with lids have made the cabinet perfect.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Very close but did not include the drawer on the right side
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Better than I thought. Very sturdy.
This is by far the best craft desk I have found! I do however have a few complaints: the bases provide little storage- as they have either a drawer or a shelf (when one of each can easily fit and allow for organization), simple directions for mounting (no explanation or numbers to follow- just pictures), and lastly the item is shipped via freight- which was a complete DISASTER. I would highly recommend this product but would advise to be prepared for the assembly and storage in the bases.
What an awesome desk. I am so happy I made the decision to buy this for my crafts room. The desk is perfect for getting organized and it is easy to assemble. I am also pleasantly pleased with the customer service from both Overstock and the Manufacturer of the desk.
