Wow, this desk is beautiful. Easy in a way to put together, although there are a lot of pieces and be careful when setting it up to put the back pieces on. Much nicer than I thought it would be and I've already received compliments from friends and family.
I got this desk for my 7 year old daughter; the decor and price were right, and reviews indicated that it was not hard to put together. I have put together other furniture before, and can follow directions. Once I started putting the desk together, I found that many of the holes were not aligned properly and it was impossible to insert the screws with the toll provided in the package. One of the dowels came apart when I stood the desk upright after assembly. I had to turn the desk over to the handyman in my building to try to salvage it, as it is too heavy to ship back.
