  • lovely and functional but stinky!

    This is a great idea. Very functional. Good quality. Well built. Heavy duty. The one down side -- an it's a big one, given that we've had it installed for months now and it has not dissapated -- is the odor. I've heard about formaldahyde in furniture, but this is ridiculous! This thing STINKS. It just smells bad and it's not going away. I leave it open to air out when I think of it, but still ... Love the item. Hate the smell. (Only noticable when open.) I would be five stars except for the smell. I've never had this problem with an item before ... ever.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It's darker than the photo which I liked.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Nice quality wood and outside hardware. Had to use upgraded hardware for installation.
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate. As expected.
  • WOW! Solid and Stylish.

    This desks are solid. They look great hanging on the wall. We bought two and they have replaced a big desk in a small room. The room looks spacious. If you're looking for quality and space saving design, I'd recommend them. I would suggest going to the local home improvement store and buy some lag screws to install in the studs of your wall. The screws provided seemed a little less than adequate for the weight of the desk... not to mention I have a flare up of the "Tim the Tool Man" Syndrome on occasion, so it might be over-kill.

  • de-clutter!

    My husband and I are very happy with this purchase. I thought the walnut color might be too light for my espresso furniture in my 2nd bedroom but, it fit perfectly with the furniture and the paint we used for the wall. We just thought the black finish looked slightly cheap, so we took a leap of faith with the walnut and we don't regret it one bit! The measurements in the instructions for securing the screws to the wall were exactly as it should be. We recommend slipping the screws/washers into the wood *before* lifting it to the wall. The piece is heavy, so we had a minor struggle having to reach for the screws after we lifted it. With the correct drilling measurements, however, it was very easy to latch on to the pre-drilled holes. Also, it helps to keep the leg down when mounting it to the wall. Enjoy! We know we will!

  • looks nice, poor quality

    I love the idea of this desk, it seemed perfect for our needs. And pulling it out of the box, it looked great. But we soon found that one of the interior paper slots was totally torn apart and had fallen out - something you cannot put back in. Also, when folding the desk up and down, the support leg constantly fell out of its' slot and we had to fit it back into the pegs where it belongs. This happened EVERY TIME we folded it up or down. The finish was also rippling in 2 places, one very visible on the writing surface. This has a lot of previous great reviews, so maybe it was just our bad luck that we got a lemon, but this is not something I would recommend.

  • love them

    i saw a desk like this in a furniture magazine for around $180.00 so i decided to look for the same desk for a better price. i was looking for this desk to put in my living room so my daughters could do their homework but could fold away when not in use. since the desk was cheaper on overstock i decided to get two. i am very satisfied with the end results. i found a book shelf to go in between the desks and it looks like one unit. i helped my husband mount the desks on the wall. very solid need two people to do it. and you do want to measure where you want them and have screws ready to put in place when you get ready to mount. you also want to mount on a stud because it is a very solid, heavy piece of furniture. we also decided since the desks were for our children that we would put an extra set of screws just for safety measures. i ordered this product on a monday recieved them on a wednesday. my girls love their desks & i loved the price.

  • Great desk for compact spaces

    The quality of this desk is good. Most of all we enjoy the fact that it can be put away with ease. It looks good and serves it's purpose well. The price is fair.

  • Great Desk

    I have had this desk for years and it is a high quality and durable desk. I received compliments on it all the time because no one had ever seen a murphy desk before. Great desk if you are trying to conserve space!

  • Not good

    poor quality, came damaged, seemed like it would be hard to hang on the wall too. Returned this item and bought a different desk.

What are the installation instructions? Do you have to use anchors in the wall or does it have to be in a wall stud? fidel on Dec 10, 2014

Hello fidel, this will come with all the needed hardware for installation, you will only need to attach the desk to the wall with the hardware. I hope this helps you, have a good day! overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 11, 2014
I would highly recommended finding and using the studs. This desk is heavy. The screws they send are not adequate. I used 3 inch deck screws. You will also need a second person to help lift and hold the desk on the wall while you drill the mounting screws. justap0 on Mar 5, 2015

No installation instructions are provided online for us to direct you to. However, many reviewers have reported that this is a heavy item that does require being installed into a wall stud with upgraded hardware. overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 28, 2012

My apologies if this question is repetitive but I only have a very small space in a corner (even a small corner desk is too big). What is the total amount of space this takes up when open from the end of the desk to flat against the wall? Is that 30 inches? Thank you. dorisjd on Jul 20, 2012

Yes. Assembly is required with all furniture items. You will receive all hardware required for assembly. This is going to be considered light assembly, which means it will not require you to use extensive tools or hours of labor putting this together. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 21, 2012
The only assembly I had to do was it install the two small shelves. Put the pegs in the pre drilled holes and put the shelf on top. justap0 on Mar 5, 2015
