    • Great Desk for your Laptop

      I ordered this desk thinking it will be an okay addition to my home. I wanted something white and inexpensive. The desk has great lines and makes a wonderful piece of furniture for my bedroom. The first desk received had slight damage in shipping, not Overstocks fault at all. It was packaged extremely well and looked like it was dropped on a corner. Customer Service went above and beyond. I received a new desk in just a few days. It was super easy to put the desk together and I am so happy I purchased it. I love it.

    • Small, space saving desk

      Pros: The desk is cute and fits just perfectly in my daughter's room. Cons: I don't think it could withstand repeated moving or a rough child. Keep that in mind.

    • Multi-use Parsons Table

      I needed a table that would fit inside my guest room closet and be sturdy enough to hold a sewing machine. I was pleased that the dimensions were exactly as stated in the description. My only disappointment is that the drawer is not very deep. Since the table is 19 1/2in. deep, I expected a deeper drawer. It will hold needles, bobbins and scissors. The ease in which it was assembled was also a plus.

    • bad choice

      The paint was obviously damaged and retouched up - and very poorly done. These desks were probably old and not cared for in the warehouse. They never should have been shipped.

    • Decent for the price

      I bought the larger version of this table from Overstock a few years ago. I needed a smaller one to fit into my home office so I ordered this one. It is easy to put together but it is nowhere near as nice as the larger version which seems to not be offered by Overstock currently. Such a shame. The size on this is perfect for the space but it feels cheap (I know, it IS cheap but the larger version was only slightly more expensive and it feels solid, not like particle board). It is fine for now. It was easy to put together. The hardest part was opening the box (no joke). One leg has a defect in the finish and if it didn't face a wall, I'd ask for a replacement leg. The drawer is shallow and small and I can tell that my young kids will probably break it if I don't watch carefully. If you are considering it, think carefully about how much use it will get. I'll probably be swapping this one out for the West Elm version within the year.

    • get what ya pay for

      This is not an expensive desk so dont expect for it to be amazing quality. It arrived with a few nicks here and there but overall you get what you pay for. Love this style of desk and it was easy to put together. Have had no problems with the drawer either. Shipping is pretty fast as well
