I just finished assembling the desk. I will say it is not a very good quality item. The color is not true white with slightly yellow or grey on it. There were already some scratches on the corners and surface. You have to push hard to close the drawer. On the plus side, I like the design and it is not too heavy. I had a higher expectation on it since it looks so pretty on the pictures.

The construction is sensible. The fit and finish of the parts is excellent. All parts labeled with stick on letters and they match the workbook drawings. Ignore the numbered parts on the outside of the box. They do not match the book. LOL Very well packaged too. The drawings in the manual are good. Use a magnifying glass on some photos as there could be a left-right issue. Really look at the details of the drawings. Hold the part next to the drawing and make sure the orientation is right. Even if you think you know! Do not put wood dowels in both parts of the drawer . Only one side. Luckily I got mine out before the glue dried. There is not enough glue. Get more glue. With the Superglue you can go to your local hobby shop and get a 5-15 second version Cyancryolate that is thicker to take up gaps. Do not let children or pets get near that glue. If you really want to be safe use yellow wood glue or better yet use PL premium construction adhesive and apply it sparingly with a popcicle stick. Wipe off the excess with a damp cloth. Use a dry cloth or paper towel for the PL premium glue. I glued all of the leg structure with PL premium glue on all of the joints but I did not use glue on the top surface in case I ever wanted to move the table easily. I just use the cam locks to detach the top of the table. Make sure to use all of the screws because they all are important. One thing I changed is the tracks on the bottom of the drawers. Don't put the screws that hold on the tracks of the drawers from the bottom as shown. The provided screws have no holding strength at all and will crack the composite. Put the two screws in the side of the track in the holes with the angled edge so the screw fits flush. I put together all the parts on a folding card table. Do not try to just sit on the floor to build this table. It will be a much harder job. (polite description) LOL I am 65, artist and former jet engine mechanic. When you are starting to assemble the leg structure, and you are ready to add the second end piece, ( PART C) carefully sit the entire structure on the floor and then finish that last part while standing up to do the work.

Description should be changed to Antique Cherry and Yellow; not white. I made the color work in my office and I really like the desk. It was very easy to put together.

I needed a smallish desk for basic home office needs, and thought this would fit the bill. I chose the yellow to brighten up a dark room. The desk arrived within a few days. Pros: -Easy assembly. It comes in 5 pieces - four legs and the body. It took about ten minutes to assemble with an allen wrench (included), even with a toddler 'helping'. -Stability. Nothing is wobbling or creaking. For a desk at this price, it seems well made. -Stylish. I am happy with the yellow (a little darker than it looks in the picture, which I actually like better). I love the curved legs. It's more interesting than a plain, boxy writing desk. Cons: -Shallow drawer. This isn't a con for me, but if you want to store anything substantial in your desk drawer, this is probably not the desk for you. Overall: -Very happy with this purchase. I am sitting at it right now, in fact.

Original desk received was defective; but Overstock customer service is great, they sent a replacement promptly. The picture shows the support for the desktop once pulled out looks like a cut-out picture frame, but it is a solid board which I think actually is an improvement -- it makes it sturdier. I purchased this described as Murphy Winter White desk to match my white Murphy bed, but the color is actually greenish-yellow; nowhere close to white/off-white/ivory/cream. I will have to have the exterior painted white to match the murphy bed after airing it out to get rid the strong odor. I cannot imagine anyone can sleep in the room with that smell. I am lucky that the guestroom is completely isolated from the rest of the house.

The desk is a good value. Quality construction. It was purchased for a beach house to be used in a bedroom with Ethan Allen off white beach furniture. The picture of the desk and color description are not accurate. The desk has a nice wood top but the legs and face are more yellow than they are 'antique white'. I will have to paint the legs to get it to match the other antique white furniture in the room. It is hard to get a feel for the true color when purchasing online. I will keep this in mind in the future.

First off, these desks are really great. Quality is strong, very easily assembled. The cherry wood on top is what you see. However, it is NOT antique white. It's a creamy yellow. It fits our sunroom so I did not return. But please be aware it's not white at all. Shipping was great, no dents or tears in box.

I'm not a fan of big desks, and I wanted something with a good design so this was perfect for me. The drawers are solid and the legs allow me to cross MY legs while sitting at the desk. Plus, it looks chic and great. Desk matches many color schemes, as it has a brown and gray tint to it (along with a greenish hue). I could see it going well with navy blue, red, grays, yellows, and eggplant purple. I'm not sure it would fit well into a beige/brown room as the photo suggests.
