I love the look and feel of this desk and it fits perfectly in my small apartment. It wasn't difficult to put together however, the piece/legs on the right side are not sturdy due to the fact that the "claw" screw backs won't catch onto the wood and therefore the screws that go into the screw backs are useless. The legs come out too easily if you lift or move the desk. Might have to try some wood glue. If that part wasn't an issue the desk would be perfect.

I ordered this desk to replace the thin folding table I had been using as a desk. I don't know what took me so long. This was very easy to put together. It's not fancy, but functional. To solve the storage issue, I plan to get baskets that I can use as drawers, to place on the shelves. Living in NYC, it just makes sense to order from overstock. To date, I've purchased a futon, bookshelf, table and chairs, this desk, a rug, sheets, duvet covers, a vaccuem and I am very satisfied. The customer service is great! Only once, did a product come damaged and it was replaced within days. Always worth it!
I was looking for something sturdy, inexpensive, and not too big or too small for our rental property and this desk is a perfect fit. It arrived in a couple of days with no damage and took about 1-2 hours to assemble. The top has a large work surface and the shelves are perfect for renters to store related work items. It is a perfect size desk and will last for years to come. Thanks Overstock!
I decided to redo my office space at home and needed a lot of things - so I needed good quality furnishings for not a lot of money. This desk fit the bill perfectly. It's very solid, simple, clean, quite attractive and was easy to put together. (I happen to enjoy assembling furniture of this sort.) It does warn that there is a maximum weight tolerance (I think 40-50 pounds,) so that may be something to keep in mind. Good thing I don't intend to stand or sit on it. :)
Very nice little desk, perfect for that small area. I bought some inexpensive colorful canvas baskets for the shelves and use it in the corner of a bedroom. I had a piece of glass cut for the top and use it almost daily. Very satisfied.
This desk looked simple and perfect to add into a bedroom online. Once we put it together, it is pretty flimsy, the wood is poorly spray painted and cheap looking and the top is inevitably going to be scratched by anything you set on it. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't have chosen this desk. I could have probably gotten a better quality desk for the same price.
I purchased this desk to use as a vanity in my bedroom for my first apartment, and it serves it's purpose perfectly. It's a good height and I love the shelves for storing cosmetic's and other things. Also, it looks nice with the rest of my black bedroom furniture and was perfect for my price point.
This was very easy to put together, took me about 30-45 minutes with no help. I love the black color and it is very stable. I also like that is it no flimsy pressboard. It was worth the price. I looked a similar one on XXXXXXXX website but this one looked sturdier and I was right!
I got my desk yesterday. It's great quality and looks beautiful. I am actually going to use this to make my jewelry on- I love the shelves to hold my bead storage containers and tools and it's the perfect size for a workspace whether you use it for a laptop, homework, or making jewelry! Plenty of room to spread supplies out. It took about 45 minutes to put together and the directions were very easy to follow. The quality of the wood is very sturdy. I definitely would recommend this desk!
