    • Nice little desk

      We needed to fit 7 desks in a 110 square foot office and these fit the bill. They were well packaged, easy to assemble, and look nice. Only wish is that they were a little higher so you could easily use with a chair with arms, but otherwise they are great.

    • Too many parts!

      Desk looks nice once we finished assembling. Took me 3 hours to put together. Too many parts and instructions can be confusing.

    • Great little writing desk!

      Great little writing desk. After searching for used, refurbished, repurposed furniture, I found this item on your site. It was the right size for the room it was to go in. It could have been a bit longer, but it ended up being the same dimensions as a small chest dresser that would be on the opposite side of the bed where it was to be positioned, so it makes the room perfectly balanced. My daughter had requested a small desk for her bedroom for a study corner etc. I looked for about 2 months and found this on your site. The price was good and was not too difficult to assemble. We gave that job to her Dad. LOL He got it done without too much hassle. She loves it. Thanks again for the many products to chooose from on your site.

      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 don’t 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.

    • I'll let you know when I finally finish Step 1

      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.

    • Black X Writing Desk

      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.

    • Poor Directions and Quality

      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.

    • Looks great,assembly instructions not specific.

      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.
