I've purchased a couple of comparable desks from Pier One for double the money and there is no difference. This looks good, was easy to put together and is very functional. I received it in 4 days and in perfect condition. I'm ordering another one right now.
The bottom shelf is about 11.5" tall, almost 13" wide, and 15.5" deep. The top shelf is almost 9.5" tall, almost 13" wide, and 13" deep. So no, you can't put a mid or full sized computer case on a shelf.
I didn't read the instructions and I messed up the top of it. DOH! Other than that, packaged well, easy to assemble, light weight, and sturdy. Color matches other espresso finishes that I own.
I have been looking for a desk I could fit in my bedroom where I could do my make-up...instead of the bathroom sink. I really like this one because it does not take up too much space and has a more open look. The make up bench fits perfectly under the desk top and when I sit there is plenty of knee room. I put seldom used items in baskets on the shelves to the left. They are easily accessible when I need them but not taking up space on the top. I am very pleased with my purchase. It is exactly what I needed.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Right on
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Smooth finish and sturdy. My husband used wood glue when he was putting it together so it should stay tight.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Right on
Its a nice desk heavy, but the screws for the leg on the right side (the one without the shelves) never stayed put. The leg pulled apart constantly and eventually broke off completely. I tried rescrewing and using wood glue, but it would not stay put. I've had the desk for less than 6 months.
I needed a small desk that I could incorporate into my living room without turning my living room into an office. This desk is perfect. The scale is small so it's unobtrusive but it's very functional. I use this as my main desk when I get home from work in the evenings and on weekends. I have it sitting behind the sofa so no-one walking into the room can really see the desk unless they really look for it. The lower shelf on the left is not quite big enough for the printer I have sitting there but it works as a place to store the printer.
My husband put it together in a couple of hours and the only problem he had was a nut or bolt that broke in half - with one half in his hand and the other half in the desk. Seems to be sturdy even given that so we're not too worried about it.
Overall, I'd recommend it.
I needed a small desk for our spare guest room and its a spot i put my makeup on..it's perfect! low profile ..contemporary and suits our needs. The color was a tad litter than the expresso finish I was expecting but I still love the look and quality of the desk!
I have no idea how to put the table top on and the shelves. I see no holes for screws and they just don't screw in. Am I going to have to bust out the gorilla glue? HELP!!!!kristencap on Mar 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
IT'S A NIGHTMARE TO PUT TOGETHER. I DIDN'T THINK ABOUT GORILLA GLUE. THINK IT WOULD WORK?sharon216 on Apr 25, 2013
The cams or bolts hold the screws in place. My partner and I put this together last week. Maybe take a break and look at the instructions with "fresh eyes". Good luck!cornerstonecounsel on May 30, 2013
