On the bright side, this table isn't entirely worthless because they say doing detailed, frustrating things can ward off Alzheimer's. I am consoling myself with this knowledge as, having taken every tool I own out of my Craftsman toolbox, I attempt to assemble this POS. I kind of suspected what it was when I ordered it, to be fair; the earlier review did not lie. But I was so desperate for a corner table for my laundry room, I bought it anyway. I should have returned it, but given the price, I am looking upon the process as penance for my stupidity. This table (desk?) has that green, glow-in-the-dark cast like one of those Halloween skeletons you hang out to frighten trick-or-treaters. So, yes, be afraid. Be very afraid. It came out of an intact, undented box with multiple nicks and scuffs in the hideous paint. Only half the wooden parts were labeled. I have B, C, and a couple of E's -- but no A's or D's, and so forth. Many, many of the referenced holes are not even drilled and the hardware is lumped haphazardly in bags with multiple sizes of screws packaged inexplicably together. Despite this, the assembler is repeatedly exhorted to "tighten all hardwares carefully." ??? The reason all this care is needed is that, to call this thing "pressed wood" is an insult to the term. This is more like a combination of sawdust and cat litter compressed into sheets and cooked in your toddler's Easy-Bake. One too many turns of the screw, and you're left with a gaping hole and a pile of dust. I am keeping my Dustbuster to hand. Oh, and I still don't have the thing assembled. Only part of the top, and the drawer. I am waiting for the last application of Elmer's Wood Glue and Liquid Nails to dry. Can I say something good about this contraption? (Tap, tap, taping finger.) Okay, it did not stink. A lot of imported Chinese crap furniture reeks of chemicals, and this did not. And it was packaged well -- which tells you all the paint nicks had to have occurred in the factory. Nonetheless, let my tale of woe serve as the gentle warning it is meant to be. Move on. Stack up some orange crates or run down to Goodwill for a piece of Army surplus. Your life will be infinitely better.
This is hands down the worst item I have purchased from overstock. The color was ugly. It actually has a green tint to it. I put it together on leg was broken where you attach it together. I would have returned it but the box had already been thrown away. I guess I am out of luck.

For this price, you can't go wrong. I used this corner table as a prayer table. It can accomodate all my saints and statues and the little drawer can be used to hold some little candles. It looks very elegant. I highly recommend it! Also, very easy to assemble.
This is a beautifully designed corner desk. The turned legs make the table stand out. The table is sturdy and easy to assemble. The size is perfect for my family room corner. The shipment arrive sooner than expected. For less than $84 on this table, it is a bargain. Overall it is a beautiful, good quality and great value table. Definitely a buy!
