I'm a 58 year old woman, and I put it together myself, HOWEVER, the drawer was broken and that was the last thing you put together and take the plastic off of. After working on the desk for 2 hours, I was not going to take apart and send back. I have called and was told they would try to get me another one (drawer). I would recommend this desk to everyone, really sturdy.

This desk is actually going to be used as a bedroom entertainment center. Its size, height and cubby hole features make it a wonderful addition to the bedroom without the bulky look of a "traditional" entertainment center.
After looking at several stores, this was one of the only desks I found that could fit the space I needed it for. The design of the desk is wonderful, the storage below the desk is very handy. I bought small baskets to fit in the shelves and not only does it look really nice, but I'm able to keep my stationary and supplies organized. The price of this desk cannot be beat. Assembly wasn't too difficult. I would recommend this item for someone looking for a small, light use desk with the added bonus of good storage space!
I needed a desk to put in my large closet to use and hide all my crafting projects. Size was great; however, one piece came cracked. I was sent a replacement which came broken into 2 pieces. I jerry-rigged the first piece to work and love the finished product.
This desk suits my needs, and I really like the cubby holes for underneath storage. It went together pretty quickly - pretty good directions, etc. It is not some premium quality piece of furniture, but really good value for the price.
Purchased it for my daughter who just moved into a small apartment. It works perfectly - perfect for a small work space and useful for its storage. The only negative is that it was difficult to put together. But once up, she loves it.
This would be a 5 star rating other than we had a problem with one leg. The holes were not drilled properly, but the company, true to it's word, sent out a new leg in less than a week to replace the defective leg. So no major complaints there. The desk is easy to put together, it's solid and a great size for a bed room. I would definitely buy this desk again.
this was neer really answered and I would like to know if this is possible as well - please advise

Hello bnikkis23, the manufacturer does not recommend leaving out the cubbies. They provide the frame with more support and stability. Thank you for shopping with us! A.C.overstockcustomercare2 on Oct 13, 2014
I left the cubies out and mine is supporting a 40" television. Without the cubbies it looks larger and less intrusive.scriebe on Nov 20, 2014

Is it possible to leave the back of the bookcase off? I would like the cubes to be open in the back to access the wall outlets. Thanks!kmac536 on Dec 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

I think it would make it very wobbly. I covered the backing with a nautical map, but you could easily put material or wallpaper and dress it up a bit.dancyfancy on Dec 27, 2013
