We ordered the Murphy Desk for my 16 year old daughter. It actually came the very next day. It was easy to install and of great quality. She loves it and it looks great. Very sturdy and perfect for space saving in a teenagers bedroom. Great product, price and service. I would recommend Overstock.com to anyone looking for a great deal on furniture!

I recently moved into a 400 sq foot house with my boyfriend. I work from home and this desk is an amazing space saver. I'm a designer and can fit my MacBook Pro AND my Wacom tablet side-by-side no problem. It's holding up very well and I love it. I would like to add that I didn't have an issue with paint smell as I noticed other people mentioned.

This isn't exactly the easiest thing to hang -- anchoring is always a little tricky -- but my husband and I have managed to install it in two different homes this year without problem. The only thing I'd recommend is making a point to measure it so that the desk portion will be level when open. (In the first installation, we had it up a tad too high and I had to makeshift a solution to compensate. We were more careful the second time around.)
It's just the coolest thing, really. I have a work room that's also a guest room, and this allows me to have a desk in there when I need one that basically disappears into a simple piece of wall art when I don't. I love it. I wish I could have Murphy everything. Footprints are for suckers. This thing ... It's one of my favorite buys.
This is a cool product. My daughter loves it. I had a professional install it. He made sure it was extra sturdy so if kids hung on it, it would not fall down. It is very very heavy. I would never have my husband hang it. It could be a safety issue if you do not get a professional to hang it. The product is awesome! Lots of compliments. space saver!

I have not purchased this yet, but I have a suggestion for those who have a bad smell. You can place an open box of baking soda in the unit and close it for a few days. You can also purchase and ozone spray. It has no odor but it absorbs other odors and makes them go away. Try placing a small deep dish that will fit on one of the shelves filled with the ozone spray and close it up for a few days. It should work. I have purchase furniture on sites like these and they often have an odor in the drawers.
The unit looks nice once mounted on the wall. The installation instructions are pretty bad. Even though it's made in China you'd at least hope the marketing company that rebrands it in the US would spend the time to make the instructions easier. The instructions said to install the unit at around eye height, which makes no sense because the fold out table has to come out of the unit at a precise height or it will be uneven. In any case, after doing the math it turns out the cardboard box it came in was almost exactly the right height (on its side) to boost up the unit and then mount it on.
The latch is pretty cheap and wobbly and I anticipate having to replace.
I do like how it looks and use it as a compact breakfast table, which seems to work well so far.
Received the desk in Sydney, Australia - there are 2 issues I see. Firstly I would not call this desk white, it is definitely an off-white/creamy beige colour and I have now installed it against a white wall and there is a major colour difference. Secondly, the desk was scratched on the top right-hand side and my husband had to superglue it down - it is unknown how I could at least get a slight refund or return the product to the States?
However the desk is excellently designed and a great space saver in our small apartment and we love it!
I got this desk for my daughter who is in college.... she loves the pockets and her and myself bought a mirror on O. and put it on the bottom with hot glue not when she folds it up she has a mirror instead of a block of wood. very impressed and buying another one for myself

My only complaint about this desk...which I do love!! Is that the paper pockets on the right go all the way down to the bottom of the first one. So if you try to use the top or middle one and your paper is normal length...you will lose it and not be able to get it back out. The only way for me to use them is to fold my item in half and just lay it over the edge. Useless really. But the rest of the desk is amazing!!

Anything can be painted with the right preparation & paint. However, there will be areas of wear, where the paint will most likely "rub off" after a while. You can retouch the areas that show wear, or go with that look. If a distressed look is what you're going for, then that could work perfectly. Just distress other areas (those most likely to be touched or "rubbed" against, and it should all blend perfectly.suckmadick on Feb 7, 2015
Anything can be painted. You just have to sand it first and then use a good primer. After that any paint will stick to it. If you want to skip some of the work, make it the primer, not the sanding. Be prepared to use multiple coats if you do not prime.bellabarleylady on Apr 17, 2015
