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.

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.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It has a bit more of an ashen quality to it than the picture shows, but it's a very lovely color nonetheless.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The desk is fantastic, the packaging left a bit to be desired.

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.
I bought this desk as a gift for my daughter so I did not actually get to see it. She said it looked great and fit perfectly in the space alloted for it. She was very pleased to get it and thought it was well constructed. The desk arrived at her home in record time so I thank you for that.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good

I love the wood color of the desk. It is beautiful and fits perfectly in my living room as a writing desk. The table of the desk is higher than the previous desk I had in its place. The assembly was 10 minutes! It arrived so quickly to my home. Since it said assembly required, I didn't even open the box for almost 2 months thinking that it would take me 4 hours to assemble, so I was waiting for my son to visit so he could deal with all the small pieces. The joke was on me, because when I opened the box there were only 2 pieces that needed to be added to completely assemble the desk. It is now a beautiful new addition to my living room. I just wish the drawers worked better and that they were wider. I can only put the 8 x 11 1/2 papers in the middle drawer. My previous desk had wider drawers. I miss that.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color on the website was exactly what was delivered.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The drawers stick. You have to force them shut.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It is smaller than I thought it would be.
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
This desk is a great product, I bought this for my wife and she is very pleased. However, unless you own tools and have the ability to ream out the holes for the screws you will need someone to help. Two out of four holes did not align with the nut inset. Other than that issue it is a good product.
