The color is "off", a shade not likely to match anything else. The drawers are loose and have no tracks so hang down and could drop out when pulled out.

I bought this desk to serve as a vanity. It is perfect for that an has great storage options. However, the drawers tip downward to an unsatisfactory degree when pulled out. I am going to have my husband apply his woodworking skills to fix this as it really is annoying as is. That is why I would not recommend it to a friend at this time.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Fine, though stain did not reach some corners.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is what I expected, given that poor quality control on items made in China seems to be the norm anymore.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fine
I was stunned when I opened the shipping box because what I saw was an ashen object and I wondered iF this is really the desk I ordered. After completely unpacked the Sshape and strength of the desk is as expected but the finish was more like fireplace ash color than the oak as I expected. In addition one drawer had two holes that had been drilled in error then filled with a plastic wood type filler Had I ordered a distressed appearing desk it would have been perfect. What I have will take considerable effort to bring it to an appearance I thought I was buying in the first place. Would I recommend this product to a friend. XXX NO!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? wasn't even close
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. strength is fine, appearance is very poor
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? except for appearance the description was okay or even better than okay
The quality of the desk is not worth the price. It came damaged - Overstock was very quick and pleasant in exchanging the damaged goods and the replacement was a bit better than the original product. The drawers do not fit flush and it just is not the quality I would have expected.
Unfortunately I was only able to give this 4 stars as the top corner of the desk came cracked. It is an easy fix with some wood glue though and I imagine it was due to handling/shipping. Other than that this desk is small enough to fit in my small apartment. I love all of the drawers too as I am able to store many different electronics. VERY easy to assemble too! Very happy with my purchase and great customer service from overstock!!
This item arrived quickly, and with easy-to-follow instructions. I had it assembled within thirty minutes. I didn't notice any damage that made me want to return the piece. It is the same color as in the 2nd/3rd photos, which looks nice in all kinds of lighting. The little drawers are perfect for holding jewelry and other small items, while the larger drawers will be good for desk supplies. I have it in my bedroom, where it fits nicely even though the room is on the smaller side. Now I just need a small chair or stool so I can sit at the desk while I'm online shopping or writing letters!
This is a beautiful desk and now that we finally have a sound one we are very happy with it. The first desk we got arrived right on time, but one of the leg pieces was broken. After over a week of emailing back and forth with Overstock customer care, we finally got word that they will send us a replacement part, and told us to dispose of the broken part as we see fit. So we were quite surprised to get a whole new desk instead of the replacement part. The color is beautiful, putting it together was easy, it feels sturdy and looks well made. The drawers slide well, but there are no stoppers so if a child pulls on them they may slide all the way out and spill the contents on the floor. Other than that is is a great piece. (I gave the first desk to my dad and he made a new leg for it and is very happy with it.)
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color of the first desk we got was a little darker and greyer, which i actually preferred... the color of the second desk was accurate to the image on the website.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The first one we received had a broken leg, the replacement one is in great condition and we are very happy with it.
Finish was sticky and uneven. Tried stripping it ourselves and had to take to a professional, which made it no bargain. Should have sent it back.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? uneven color
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not great
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Size good, construction shoddy, finish bad.
I simply love my desk. It has everything that you would want or need in a desk. It is very decorative so could be used in every room of the home and is a comfort to sit at to pay bills and so forth. While I have my Mac desk top computer sitting on you could als classify it Asa computer desk as well. It completely fits all my needs and is lovely to look at in its oak finish that matches all the other pieces of furniture in my home.
After re-arranging my living room, I was left with a big blank wall. I need something small and narrow. This fit the bill. It is slightly wobbly. Hopefully, that will be fixed with adjustments to the leg. The knobs do look a little cheap, but that is a simple easy fix that can make the item more custom for a space.
I am extremely pleased with my desk. It's well-designed, well constructed and exactly as described. It was packed well and arrived perfectly. I think the color is just as pictured; other reviews have complained about the color, but I like it. I recommend it!
I got this on sale which is one reason I am SO satisfied! It is a perfect size in width and height. All the drawers are super long so space is plenty. The middle drawer fits notebooks and papers in the standard sizes. My 15in laptop fits in the center great. The ONLY THING is this desk is a lot darker in person. It is dark brown whereas in the photo it seems sandy or darkish beige, which works for me anyway. Would recommend this desk and brand to anyone looking for vintage styled pieces. The quality is fantastic!
This is a great little writing desk. My 13" laptop fits perfectly in the space between the top drawers and I have plenty of space to store all of my writing accessories and knick-knacks on the top shelf. Unfortunately, the top shelf is not wide enough to store binders or books. The entire top is one piece and each side of the desk has two legs attached to the side and you simply attach each side to the top. Three pieces total. It should take no time at all to put together. The drawers hold much more than I thought they would and they slide easily and smoothly without any struggle. They are not on a track, so I was surprised at how well they glide open and closed. Most of my issue, and I saw on other reviews that others have had the same problem, was that while the desk pieces were packed with plenty of styrofoam, their isn't enough of it for the desk to remain secure and in place in the box while in shipping. When I opened my box, the styrofoam had been torn up and was flying everywhere and sticking to EVERYTHING. Two of the drawers had come loose of the desk and were tumbling around in there. I was lucky enough to not end up with scratches all over my desk or crushed drawers. The knobs on the drawers were all a bit too loose, but that was easily solved with a few turns of a screwdriver.
