  • Awful

    The file drawer will not fit. They say to just push it in, but that is clearly impossible. The rest came together without a probably (except for a few screws that were too short to afix the knobs). So, there is no bottom drawer until I buy new hinges.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? splotchy
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. very low
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? left out important info
  • PERFECT little desk

    This desk will take a bit of time to put together (over 2 hours for us), but it's so worth it. First of all, it's real wood, so it is heavy and solid. The size is great for a small piece and the drawers hold a substantial amount of stuff. The bottom file drawer is sticky at first, but that smooths out with a couple of openings. All in all, this is such a great size for a kitchen desk and the ability to shrink it down is invaluable.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? A little darker than a natural oak
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Awesome - solid furniture
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate

  • Large drawer doesn't slide properly.

    I ordered this desk knowing from the reviews that the large drawer was going to stick. I have pretty good woodworking skills and since the desk was exactly the style we wanted I decided to order it anyway and figure out a way to fix it. The desk arrived on time, in excellent condition and with a complete set of parts and hardware. After assembly, I decided it would take too much effort to fix the large drawer. We use it anyway (in fact, I'm using it as I type this review) and just use lots of muscle to open and close the large drawer. I would recommend this desk to a friend with one caveat: The large drawer won't work very well and you probably won't be able to make it work right. Don't buy it if this is unacceptable.

  • Nice desk

    Classy arts and craft style at an excellent price. This could pass for a hand-made desk. Real wood and nice, simple design. Very easy to assemble.

  • arts and crafts cottage oak expand a desk

    Although the product is awesome, it is much darker than the pictures. i hired a cabinet maker to put it together, and yes the bottom drawer is difficult. I added the last piece, and don't enjoy the allen wrench. i don't understand why a regular headed bolt can't be used. Love the desk.

  • Husband Assembles Cottage Oak Expand-a-Desk!

    I could never have put this together without my willing husband, who diligently assembled, tightened bolts, then started all over because a touch made the whole desk collapse. He patiently finished the desk because I wanted him to do so. Hoping the lower file drawer will hold up under weight of files. Desk looks good though!

  • Bottom File Drawer Does Not Fit Properly

    I was so excited to find a desk that doesn't look like a desk. This product took a lot of time to put together and was actually done by my father in law who is handy. He had to make some adjustments during the process only to find out that the bottom file drawer does not fit properly as other reviewers have stated. At first we though it was the slides and I called the manufacturer who sent a replacement. However, even after we installed the new slides and tried to adjust the fitting the drawer does not fit. The wood rubs against the slides and is getting scratched up. I contacted Overstock about returning the item. Customer service said I would need to dissemble the product. Really? After hours of putting it together why would I want to spend more time on this? So now they are sending me a new file drawer. I'm not convinced this will work and will update this review. Overall I am highly disappointed in the quality of the product. Hopefully the manufacturer will figure out how to correct the problem.

Product Q&A

Ask a Question

The description says 4 drawers, but the photo shows what looks to be hanging file folders with the bottom 2 drawers pulled out. Will this accommodate hanging file folders and if so will it accommodate algal size or just letter size? ridingrealtor on Mar 1, 2014
