I bought this product for my 6 yr old as a study /homework desk. It's a very beautiful table with storage area and great bench/chair. The assembly directions could have been better layed out, however my husband is handy and he finished it in no time. It's a sturdy and pretty piece of furniture I'm sure we'll have for years to come. The size is perfect, not too big or too small. i would definitely recommend this item. Also my daughters room is mainly brown furniture, which perfectly matches the top half of the bench of this table. fast shipment! Very satisfied customer! thanks overstock!
Everything about this desk/chair combo is as advertised. I must say that i was impressed with the general quality of the pieces. Assembly is straight forward, but as others have commented, inserting the 'panel' (which will become the bottom of the inside of the desk storage area) is the most difficult part. For the price, i think this desk set simply cannot be beat.
I am very impressed with this desk and stool/seat. I purchased it for my mother's small home as a work space for my elementary school-aged daughter for homework, drawing, writing, etc. It is sturdy, good quality and perfect for a small space.
The desk itself was great, but beware - I received with no instructions and one piece split near the seam. Fortunately, I'm a little handy and have experience putting things together - so I took the challenge to put it together on my own, using the photo as a guide. It worked - and I was lucky that the split piece of wood was facing inside the desk so it's not seen from the outside. I'm just hoping it doesn't cause a structural issue in the future. Overall, it's the perfect desk for my 6 year old daughter's room. Just wish it would have been a better buying experience.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Slightly off-white
Not exactly white. This is really a cream desk. The instructions for the stool were missing, but it was easily assembled. I would recommend that you have a drill / electic screw driver to assemble the top to the frame. Hand screwing it in would be a problem.
The bottom of the desk "storage" area is flimsy particle board and will break easily. It does not fit well into the track created for it. The top of the desk will stain easily. The stool is pretty sturdy, though. All in all, it's really not worth the money.
We needed a small desk for our desktop computer. This is exactly the right size and very sturdy. The seat is comfortable and promotes "better" posture than a desk chair that might allow you to slouch! Very happy with the look. Still can't believe the great price...
The table was delivered in a timely manner and in good condition. Assembly was not difficult, but took some time. I had to use a long drill bit to screw the table top into place because a screwdriver wouldn't reach. Once assembled, the table is very cute. It's the perfect size for sewing and I love that the seat fits nicely underneath when not in use. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.
We love this desk, it has a great cubby storage area and it fit well with our furniture. While looking for a desk we really had a hard time finding one with a simple chair, this bench is nice and fits nicely under desk to create more room. Very happy with this product.
This is a nice little desk. The price on Overstock is very reasonable and well worth the trouble of putting it together. Some of the pieces do not line up and there are not screw holes started in several pieces so you will need a screw gun or to be pretty strong to be able to put together. I would also highly recommend that you have another person handy to help hold the pieces while assembly is being done. Once all together nice solid desk. Great for a child/teen or in my case a all in one computer...fits nicely with room for a printer on the bottom shelf.
