    • Hard to put together but like it

      My daughter loves it. It was hard to put together. The drawer isn't usable because we couldn't get it screwed in right.

    • Love it

      It took me forever to put together because I kept misplacing all of the tiny pegs and screws. But you should know what you're getting yourself into when you order something like this. It's great to use as a desk and for display items. I recently decided to convert it into a bar and it's pretty nice for that too.

    • 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.

      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.
