I ordered this desk 8 days ago to set up for the move to my new office.. I received it in UPS last night and unpacked the entire messy, foam filled box, only to find that the instructions and hardware are MISSING. I immediately called Ostock and told them. They proceeded to tell me it would be 1-2 business days just to get an ANSWER as to when they would ship the hardware and instructions!! Called back after day 1 and still no progress. The didnt even offer to overnight the hardware once they "located" it. So far, the experience is VERY disappointing.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not well. Pieces of table are disclored and look as though the paint job was rushed. Can still see grain of plywood through coat of paint
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Pieces seem sturdy enough, however the hardware and instructions were not shipped with my table so therefore I cannot put it together
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? somewhat
We were prepared for challenging assembly, having read another review before buying this desk. The product arrived without one of the pieces. We called the mfgr, and were sent the missing piece immediately. Overall, we love this desk. It's sturdy, well designed and built to last. Once it's put together, it's a winner.
The first line of assembly instructions is "Relax..." The diagrams are reversed and inaccurate. The best approach is to not screw everything too tightly because you may have to reassemble. Whoever made copies of the manual must have reversed the images. After putting it together, it looks decent and is solid. Makes a great corner desk.
I was excited to order this desk as it was the perfect size for my daughter's bedroom. Unfortunately, the method of joining the various parts is terrible. The quick connect screws are of inferior quality and either do not hold well or break when you try and tighten them. Because of the loose connections my desk wobbles. I'm going to need to take it apart and so that all of the joints can be glued. Very disappointed in this product...

This is a great desk if you are trying to maximize space. We used it in an office and it works great. It is while, but it is not shiny. It arrives in like 1000 pieces, but is pretty easy to assemble. Took me about 25 minutes with a single Philips head screwdriver. Happy with it!
It is a nice desk and it holds what I need it to. It was not super hard to put together but there is some time involved all the same. It could use to be a little bit more sturdy, but over all I do like the desk and have no complaints.

Pretty good quality piece of furniture. The placing of the bottom shelves are a little awkward, you really can't make full use of them. And the keyboard drawer had been a bit of a challenge to open and close smoothly. I, however, feel it is solid and won't fall apart anytime soon. Color is very pretty and just like it was featured and the application of the color was done well

I was a little concerned about the construction of the desk based on all the other reviews I had read prior to purchasing this item, however, if you are organized and put all the pieces in alphabetical order first, then slowly follow the instructions and look at it to make sure it looks appropriate as you're piecing it together, you shouldn't have a problem. I recd all the necessary fastening pieces unlike other reviewers who claimed they didn't get all the wooden connecting pieces or screws/bolts. I set up my new desk, which fits perfectly in the corner of our guest room for my extra computer, and couldn't be happier.
Perfect addition to my daughter's room. A lot of desktop and shelf space yet such a space saver fitting right into a corner. Bright crisp white as Shown in picture. Assembly required of course, but easy, non time consuming, and great directions. Also, it came 2 days after my order was placed and I didn't pay for express shipping!
received the shipment on time but the desk was shipped with two left legs with no right leg. I had to call customer service to replace it. The CS acted very responsively and effectively. I received the replacement desk in two days, fast! I am a bit concerned about the quality control. This type of shipment wasted me lots of time trying to assemble the furniture just to find out that the parts don't fit.
This desk was relatively easy to put together. The directions could have been a little clearer. Usually the quality of furniture from Overstock is great but the quality of this desk was just ok. For the price, the desk was definitely worth it.
After reading mixed review about the assembly of this product I still ordered it because I liked the look and thought it would fit perfectly. I'm a 57 yr old woman & consider myself moderately handy. When the big, flat box arrived I thought 'oh boy' but lugged it upstairs and set to. The parts were labeled, the nuts and bolts were organized and numbered and I found the instructions easy to follow. It took me a couple of hours and except for the blister in the middle of my palm from screwing things into place I'm happy to report that the result is a delightful, compact desk that totally meets my needs expectations..at a great price!
I was excited to get the desk, figuring it would make a lovely addition to my 2nd bedroom/office. In assembling the item, I discovered some critical hardware missing. Called the company to request it, and they sent it, but a week later! Some of the holes could have been placed better and the directions definitely could have been clearer. The desk isn't as sturdy as I would like but it suffices and looks nice in the space. All I can say is buyer beware!
