    • You get what you paid for!

      Instructions were hard to follow, some of my pieces were labeled incorrectly. And the paint was missed up on my drawer of the desk. Other than those items, the desk is nice.

    • Nice desk

      I needed a small desk for a small bedroom and this worked perfectly. Easy to assemble and seems to be of good quality.

      Pressed wood/saw dust. Not something to use as an everyday desk. More for random use.

    • Perfect small size

      I ordered this desk to fit a small space. It is sturdy and looks very nice. The directions for the drawer were not very clear and two parts ended up being put on backwards. However, you could not tell if it was correct or not until the final steps of the desk. It would have been nice if the directions for this critical step had been more clear.

      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.
