I purchased this desk for my small office in the basement. I'd looked for a while at other retailers and the regular sized desks were too large for the space while the smaller versions were only about 33". I felt that was too small. This desk is the perfect width for my space. I was hesitant to purchase b/c there weren't many (if any) reviews but went with it since it is "solid wood". I am very pleased with the piece. It has a nice finish and looks very stylish. My husband and i put it together in about 30 mins (if not less) and it is nice and solid. The only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is b/c there was nothing included to cover the 4 screw holes on the back of the desk. However, since I put against a wall, this is not an issue for me. Bottom line, I LOVE this desk and am very pleased with my purchase.
It was fairly easy to assemble, but I made the mistake of not taking all the parts out of the box in a well lit area to check them for damage. The desk top had a scratch on it that I did not see until I had completed assembly, flipped it over and set it up beside a window in the sunlight. The desk is sturdy and I would be very happy with it were it not for the scratch. As it is I am very disappointed with it and am not sure I want to disassemble it and try to get it back into the box to return it.
The desk is easy to put together, simply attach the legs and assemble the drawer. The finish is nicer than expected, its glossy and shiny so it will always look new! I can put it in any room of the house so as my needs change I don't have to buy another desk. Love it!

The description and title stated "solid wood." The legs are wood but the top is made of MDF. Not what I wanted. Overstock did make it very easy to return and said they would look into the description.
