    • Great Product

      Awesome. I was looking for a simple desk for a good price and this did the trick! My only gripe was there was no instructions and it was a little annoying to figure out how to put together. I also recommend spraying clear coat over it.

    • drawer is not the best - but great otherwise

      Easy to assemble, was just as advertised, and suited my needs fine. my only problem is that the drawer is a bit difficult to open and close and it doesn't slide easily, but it might just need some wd-40.

    • Made for children

      I read the reviews for this product and felt that I was safe to buy it. I needed a simple desk for my new home office and thought this would be adequate. I knew I wouldn't be getting much because of the price tag, but my expectations were higher than what I got - mostly based on the product description and other reviews. This desk is very small - especially height-wise - and would be more appropriate for a child or less-weighty teenager. The wood is also very poor quality and flimsly. The desk top corners came in crumpled - I believe due to the overall poor quality of the wood. It is just not a very durable product at all. I have ordered other furniture from Overstock since and am satisfied. This was just a miss. I will eventually have to end up ordering a new desk.

    • Ehh

      Its a lovely desk however THE DESK HAS AN EXTENDED BACK. I did not know of this when i purchased this. The picture doesnt show it at all. Please keep this in mind when you buy it. Aside from that, everything else looks pretty exact (from the front).

    • Good value

      This desk was delivered 2 days after i ordered it from Overstock. Finally got around to putting the desk together. Assembly was fairly straightforward (about 30 min) and the desk is suprisingly sturdy once it is assembled. The finish is nice and the dark wood color enhances the classy looks. Definately worth the $$$ I paid for this desk. Good value.

    • Very unsturdy!

      I was very disappointed when I saw it first time after we assembled it. Looks cheap, and it is not a surprise - the material is very poor. Desk itself is very flimsy and unsturdy - we had to settle it near the wall to keep it more or less staying on its "feet". Desk is also pretty narrow, and your knees are all the time running into a table's wall that was made closer to your knees than to the end of the desk itself. Sitting there is very uncomfortable especially from the left side (where you are not able to sit at all, because of the low situated drawer). The drawer of the table is constantly stuck when trying to close it. You have to pull it back and forth several times in a row prior a success to close it. And during this process the whole table is just simply SHAKING left-right (only possible directions as we put it closely to the wall)! Will NOT recommend this product.
