    • Excellent space saver -

      I love this desk. the dimensions were perfect for my therapy office where I didn't need or have room for a full size desk. It holds all my necessities, medical journals, books, laptop and smaller therapy supplies.I'm deducting one star because while it was fairly easy to put together, the holes for the drawer assembly were not measured correctly and so the drawer sits about an inch below the desktop rather than flush. Re-drilling the holes wasn't an option so it has a tendency to come off the track.

    • Really good for the price

      We bought this for our son's room and it is perfect for a tween bedroom. The shelves are great and he loves using his computer in his own workspace.

    • Great storage

      I use my bookshelf to store about 75 books. It functions really well. I think my only issue is the small surface of the desk, but it seems to help keep the clutter under control.

    • Cute!

      The item is shorter in height than I expected. The color is definitely a rich shade of red. As for assembly, I would agree with the recommendation of using two people. As for the quality, one of the shelves - shelf O, had the holes erroneously drilled. I made it work by adjusting the position and angle. This defect didn't effect the stability of the unit once it was fully assembled. When assembling, follow the pictured instructions carefully; pay attention to the positioning of the boards and ensure use of the correct hardware. Tools needed - a flathead and a Phillips screwdriver. It took two hours to assemble.

    • Beautiful

      This beautiful desk is a steal at only $200! But please gather a few friends to help you put this one together! The instructions on putting it together could have been better.. But since I put this beauty together, I have not had a single regret on my purchase!

    • Unhappy with product

      The item came in a box that was beat up and caused damage to a few of the shelves. However the thing that irritated me the most was the fact that not all of the parts came that were needed to connect the desk between the to bookends. The boards (c and d) didn't have the right holes cute in them to connect the center, as I said before I was unable to connect the desk section or the shelves above or below the desk. This really disappointed me as I have gotten items from Overstock that worked out great. I will think twice on which items I'm willing to take a chance on in the future.
