This small black writing desk would add a sleek, contemporary touch to your office or bedroom space. Its clean lines and eye-catching cut-out detailing are super stylish, and its storage drawer and shelf make it a practical choice of desk....more
I bought this writing desk a few days ago. Despite their fast shipping, this writing desk is very easy to put them together. The desk is not that small, it still has space available after I put my laptop there and other paper works. Since I donít have that much room available in my bedroom, it fits perfectly in my room with limited space. I really recommend it to people who want a comfortable workplace with a little space.

The directions and hardware were some of the worst I have ever dealt with-and I have assembled numerous pieces of furniture. It had some worn places on the finish and the wood is soft and the hardware bubbles the wood when assembling. I needed this table for an office utility closet. It will not be seen by anyone but the computer guy, so I am keeping it because I had the exact square inches where it fit.
I've been working on Step 1 for two hours, and I still haven't gotten it put together. And I'm the handy one in the house. Ugh. Miniscule diagrams with poor labeling of parts. I'm having to take a break, and I thought I would be nearly done by now.
I received the desk a few days after I purchased but when I opened the box (which was badly beat up), some of the wood pieces were damaged. The wood on some of the pieces is flimsy.
In addition, the instructions were not clear whatsoever so I can see the frustration other purchasers had. The picture looks like a high-quality sturdy desk, but it's very light weight wood.

Once its assembled it looks great, but the screws that came with it were very poor quality and broke. We ended up using different screws. Also the assembly instructions are awful, Luckily my husband figured it all out by himself. For someone who is not that handy you will definitely have problems putting it together. In our case it would have been more trouble to return it.

Received this desk a few days ago, tried to put it together but found that the box contained two left side vertical pieces. I promptly notified Overstock, they say they are sending a replacement part. I can agree that it is very difficult to decipher the instructions, they are not very clear and the illustrations are somewhat hard to figure out. I do like that the desk is all wood, no pressed wood here. I can't wait to get the replacement piece to get it all together. It is very stylish and sufficient size for my purposes. The drawer does seem somewhat flimsy so I will not put heavy items in there, just to be safe.
I bought this desk because I had limited space in a spare bedroom designated for my grandkids, and the dimensions of this one seemed perfect. It is perfect for a place to do homework, or use for a laptop computer. The single drawer is big enough to hold writing utensils etc. There was no real problem with the assembly, and the instructions were not too complicated. It took about an hour to assemble it. It is sturdy and stylish, and the black finish matches with other furniture in the room. A good investment.
When I got it I was very excited until I opened the box and saw that the right side of the desk is damaged along with the right leg. It is not a level desk, when I put it in my room I couldn't open the drawer without stabilizing it first with my hand.... The size is good for a small space but if you can, buy one at a store not online. You might end up with c*** like I got.
When assembling this desk, you cannot screw the cam screws all the way into the pre-drilled holes or they will be too short to fit into the cam locks provided. After about three and a half hours, I had the desk together. Then I put the drawer in and it wouldn't slide all the way into the slot. When I pulled it out, two cam locks fell out of it and it essentially fell apart in my hands. I'm going to simply glue the drawer facing on the front to hide the hole and not use it as a drawer. Since all I really need is a small table for my computer, I won't return it; but, if you want this to function the way it is designed - DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!
Is the drawer fully enclosed (in other words, is the drawer supported by a full panel underneath the drawer?) or is the draw supported by a beam of wood or other material?mjosue on Sep 6, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
