      Save your money... Partical board, very poorly made.

    • Looks great and is practical

      This piece looked great matching our bedroom furniture, and is practical saving space, But after a year of using it, it's coming apart at the hinge area. The hardware to hold it together is a bit flimsy. We still use it but are very careful when opening and closing so not to have it fall apart on us when we use the hinge.

    • Falling apart...

      I assembled and installed the desk. When trying it out I realized that pieces of the wood were no longer connected. It is poor quality.

    • Murphy Fold-Out Desk

      Received this Murphy Fold-out Desk quickly from Overstock. Solid and Heavy and well-made. However, there was a chip with missing veneer on the edge of the desk's table that was stained at the factory to cover the flaw. The overall staining on the outside of the unit was good but some areas inside were missed. VERY heavy item required more screws to make sure it would be securly attached to the wall. We drilled more holes through the back panel of the unit and attached to studs in the wall to secure it. Murphy beds were a clever design and so is this desk. You can fold it up and get it out of the way when not in use, and quickly fold it down when you need a desk for writing, crafts, or to use your laptop on. When closed, I place a bench underneath the unit, and use the same bench to sit on when it's open.

    • Murphy Black Convertible Desk

      Really great desk for the price! I needed a desk for my mother, who moved in with us and needed extra room for her computer, etc. She loves that she can fold the Murphy Desk up when not in use and "hide" her stuff, but easily fold it out and put her laptop on it. She is 60/short and cannot lift much, so this gives you an idea of how relatively easy it is to lift and pull out the desk top. There is not enough room for her little printer, but we have the desk next to her dresser, which allows for "overflow". There is definitely more than enough room for her rather over-sized laptop, some paperwork, and her various pictures and things she likes to keep around. The desk also keeps her organized in terms of having three little pockets for her papers, a nice little bulletin board for her memos and notes, as well as three little adjustable shelves for pens and note pads. Some notes: the desk is definitely black, not espresso colored (a previous reviewer said it was more espresso); it definitely takes two people to hang (everyone says this...they aren't kidding!); the instructions say to hang desk from studs, but we used some of the mega anchors--the ones that support 200+ lbs. each--and the desk is doing perfectly fine. Pros: easy to use once it is up; easy to pull up and down; keeps my mom fairly organized; adequate space; comes already put together Cons: definitely black (a previous reviewer said this was more of an espresso is NOT); hangs lower than you think and looks somewhat odd when closed--like a really, really low cabinet; can only be set to one height

    • Murphy Desk

      I needed a small desk with a lot of power for my teenagers room. They share a room and I wanted to reduce the clutter. This desk is the perfect option. It was very easy to put up; but you do need two people....also when using the template, take into account whether or not you have carpet. I need to lower the unit by an inch because of the carpet-when opened the desk would slope otherwise. All in all, Im very please and the kids are actually using it.

    • cool desk

      I bought this for my 7-year-old daughter. She has a closet-sized bedroom (in NYC!) and it is just the solution we were looking for. It is VERY heavy--I could not lift it (single mom, no one here to help!), let alone install it on the wall on a stud as recommended. I just set it on a shelf in her room that was the right height and it works fine. She absolutely loves it and I do, too.

    • perfect for small rooms

      Fits in my sons small room great. Keeps it off the floor for when he wants to do connect or has friends over but big enough for his laptop and school work.

    • I will have to hang this in a very specific spot on my wall (into the metal studs) because of its weight. Are there pre-placed hooks on the back of the desk for hanging or will I be able to put them exactly 16" apart? Thanks!

      • Hello jeast05, this link will give you the assembly instructions. Thank you for shopping with us! tb

      • There are preplace hooks. We used the special anchoring bolts for drywall and it works fine. We have really enjoyed this desk.

    • Hi, what is the width between the slanted panels and could they hold a laptop standing up on it's edge? If not are these panels removable.

      • The slatted panels are best for magazines, file folders and letters. Not large enough to hold a laptop, but should accommodate a tablet. They are not removable from what I have experienced.

      • Hi lauren525, when the unit is closed there is approximately 0.5 inches between the file holders and the desktop and the panels are not removable. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.

    • How long are the legs/how many inches from under the desk to the ground? I am looking to see if I can combine this with any sort of low file cabinet/drawer.

      • about 26 inches. he has a foot rest under it.

      • I used this in a vanity area - hard to describe, but I got a stool under it. A 2 drawer file cabinet might work. Or a printer cart.

    • Is the pull out portion of this desk (where you would actually write on) is this portion actually 30 inches wide, or is it the portion that is attached to the wall that is 30 inches wide?

    • is the desk 22 inches wide or 30 inches wide. that makes a difference to me. my wall is only 24 inches wide.

      • It is 30 inches wide.

      • you will need a wall that can accommodate a 22 inch wide frame. 24 is tight squeeze but it will work. you may have to drill additional holes so you can screw it into studs or it may be sturdy enough on the sheetrock. make sure that the light switches on the wall etc... are not in the way
