  • Nice,very nice...

    I had shopped extensively on the internet for a small secretary desk. I found Overstock.com by far had the best prices! Make sure you measure your area, and take note of the desks' dimensions before you order! This desk is much darker-more like a cherry/walnut stain then what is shown in the display pics. It is beautiful! It was very well packaged- LOTS of styrofoam. It wasn't too difficult to unpack, but the styrofoam makes a pretty good mess. Here's a bit more info. regarding attaching the legs that was omitted from other reviews I read. There's 8 really long screws that get screwed into pre-drilled holes. The manufacturer includes a hex-head type tool to use. But about the 4th screw, my hand really hurt. For a woman I do have a lot of hand strength...it still was a bit difficult. If you have a ratchet w/ a hex bit get it out. The slot shelving is removable, it just slides out if you'd like more space. In the picture it shows items on the top shelf...FYI, that shelf is 7" depth. And the side section supports slide out automatically when the desk is opened- very cool! :) There are drawer-stops inside at the top of all the drawers that get turned downward preventing the drawers from coming all the way out. Just feel around for them. The one reviewer stated that they added some knobs. The drawers have carved-out sections for you to grab onto to open the drawers. But fold down door does not. You have to grab it from the sides and pull it down. Not difficult at all. I did not bolt it the wall as some have. I had stored some heavier items in the bottom drawer which no doubt helps prevents it from tipping. With the exception of a few areas where they missed a spot in staining (I just touched it up w/ furniture stain markers) the desk is well made and worth the money.

  • Mixed rating

    I purchased this desk and am very pleased with the look as well. I am unhappy about the drop down part of the desk because when you close it, the pull out support on one side does not go all the way in so it is not flush with the desk. I am constantly walking by trying to push it in.This was discovered after all of the unwrapping and assembly. It was too much trouble to pack back up return and hope for a replacement without this manufacturer assembly error.

  • Beautiful and well made desk

    This is a winner. I gave all catagories a 5 as this product deserves it. I chose to take the easily removable insides of the desk out, and put the little shelves on top with candles, etc. on it. Then on the inside of the compartment, I put all of my makeup and brushes, put a little ornate half chair up and sit and put my makeup on every day. The drawers are well made and hold my extra facial tissues and swabs. Again, this product is very well made, looks much more expensive than it is and is extremely sturdy. You can't go wrong.

  • Small Office Secretary Desk

    Excellent piece of furniture, easy to assemble, timely delivered. Looks like the photo with lovely carvings; the wood's stained darker by a few shades and has highly functional, easy sliding 3 drawers. Exact size I needed for a small office. Solid wood construction.

  • DESK

    This is a very nice desk and shipped quickly. I was a little unhappy with the size you can not put much in the inside of the desk top part is is only about 10 inches. If you are looking for a place to put a few items this is a good piece of furature. The little drawers will not hold a 12 inch ruler and the bottom draw will hold only haning files you can not put any taps on the folder if you do the draw will catch. Over all it is a nice desk and looks good in a small space. I did keep it and am trying to make it work. It is more of a writting desk not for all your bills.

  • Great Product!!! Just what I expected. :)

    This product is EXACTLY as I expected it to be. It arrived and I was pleasantly surprised that it was just as explained by the company in the product information. I am so thrilled with my decision to purchase this little desk. It's the perfect size for what I needed. Some of the reviews that I read claimed that the product was much smaller than they anticipated, but if you read the measurements, it's just as described. I intend to enjoy my desk for many years! Very happy with this purchase. :)
