  • excellent value

    This desk is attractive, easy to assemble, and comfortable to work at. I purchased for $50 including shipping and I couldn't be more pleased with the value I received for my money.

  • Cheap

    I use this as a dressing table in my bedroom. It's very cheap, so I'm glad it's not in one of the main rooms. I bought this about a year ago and it already has some water stains on it. I will probably throw it away next time I move.

  • Junky

    Corners are very sharp and one of them broke off the first week after we set it up. Made out of cheap particle board.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Desk was a perfect size and good quality

    Would recommend this desk to anyone looking for a small desk with clean lines and one drawer. I had a small space and it fit perfectly. Perfect for computers as well.

  • 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.
