  • A Good Looking Desk For A Good Price

    The lack of reviews for this desk was concerning to me, but the product looked great and I have a good amount of experience assembling knockdown furniture, so I gave it a shot. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase. The desk has some minor cosmetic flaws like drawer alignment being slightly (1/8" on one) off, which are only noticeable if you are looking for them. I did not have the same issues that another reviewer had with misalignment of holes. The finished product looks as good as the picture.Assembly took about 2 hours total and was done by one guy, me. Instructions were average in difficulty / helpfulness based on what I have experienced with other knockdown furniture and overall only resulted in me having to backtrack once to redo a step.You will need to have the following tools in order to put the desk together as none are provided (Phillips screwdriver with a long neck, 4mm Hex Wrench and a rubber mallet). A cordless drill with a clutch for sinking many screws and turning lock nuts is a major effort and time saver. Also, there are 6 long screws that secure the desktop that require and extra long (3") Phillips Head bit if you are using a cordless drill. It was impossible for me to get two of the screws into the desktop by hand, but that was a minor inconvenience and easily solved with a new bit for under $3.One other recommendation if you purchase this desk. For some reason, the drawers do not come with pre-drilled holes to align the drawer tracks to when inserting screws. Aligning the tracks is easy per the instructions, but without the holes, the wood will crack when you sink the screws. I'd recommend drilling pilot holes before attaching the tracks with the screws. This additional step eliminated the wood cracking issue for me.

  • Looks good but quality is not as expected

    I expected this desk to fit my office well, and it does. It is wood. But the top panel came with a big crack line at the bottom side and the drawer panel was easy to crack when I assembled it. I requested the customer service to replace the top panel but only received cancellation and return label. How could I put it back into original package for return for such a complicated packed furniture? Then I called for replacement only the top panle, but received no further attention. I am disappointed with the customer service.

  • Definitely Worth the $$$

    After reading some of the reviews and deciding that some of those people didn't have a clue, I took a "leap of faith" and ordered this desk. This was my first order from overstock and it was a good one. My husband put this desk together and he has put together several pieces of our furniture. He did had to predrill the holes on the drawers, but other than that, everything went fine. This desk is a great value for $150. The size of it alone is going to keep it in our family for a while to come.

    This is a nice desk, especially for the price. It took about 2.5 hours to assemble, but I did it mostly alone. The directions are short, but if you use the pictures it is easy.

  • Awesome!

    Great desk. Comes in two boxes. One box is heavy, have someone help you. I carried it all in by myself, but needed my husband to help me assemble, because of the weight. There are LOTS of pieces, but it goes quickly. Read the directions about the drawers very carefully.

  • Love the desk!

    I am so pleased with this desk, with the one exception... it is really hard to put together. The directions are very hard to read and often times you have to hope that you are putting something on correctly. But the desk is lovely and was exactly what I had hoped for.

  • White Writing Desk

    The finished product is a very nice desk. However, the amount of time and effort it took to get there was ridiculous. The instructions are very unhelpful, and although we followed it as best as we could, at the end we realized we had missed a few things here and there and had to return to certain steps. The keyboard draw does not stay completely shut, and is supposed to be held up by a magnet that doesnt quite work. Once the desk is configured, its nice, but I wouldnt recommend this product to others. Too much time and effort.

  • Pretty, but...

    Love Overstock, but this was a bust. The first one came with the top split right down the middle. Overstock replaced it with its usual great service. Overall, the desk looks fine, but as we began to use it, the paint has begun chipping off and along the front edge and on the drawers, there is now bare wood showing. Also, the keyboard drawer front does not stay closed because the magnet doesn't touch the metallic hold. I'm thinking of using wood glue to bind it to the sides. At least it won't always fall open. :-(

  • Sturdy and beautiful

    This desk is very substantial and attractive. I paid to have it assembled because I read that it might be difficult, so I'm not sure how difficult it was but the pieces were very heavy. Only two disappointments kept it from being 5 stars for me...the magnets holding the keyboard tray shut are too weak so that keeps flopping open and it's heavy so it could hurt your hands. I will try to add stronger magnets. The second thing is a hairline crack midway on the left edge side of the top of the desk...so disappointed! There was no way I would pay to have it disassembled to send it back so I will live with it and try to touch it up. Overall, still pretty happy and get compliments on it. Lots of desktop space and nice little side drawers. Seems comfortable as a workspace and looks elegant.

  • Very nice desk. Wife's new craft table.

    Very nice desk! I was surprised at the quality of the table top. Only had a couple of issues with assembly. The instructions for the most part were pretty good. The desk took me right at 2 hours to assemble. Had all the necessary parts. The only issue with assembly was the middle drawer guides. I had to move the middle drawer guides that are attached to the desk, not the drawer back approx 3/4" on both sides. Then the drawer closed. Overall we are pleased. This is our first Overstock.com furniture purchase. The shipping was very good with the UPS tracking numbers furnished. Both boxes came in good condition. One is fairly heavy, the other not so much.

Answer This Question

I too had the same problem. It seemed that the drawer would not go in far enough. I ended up moving the slides that are attached to the desk, not the drawer, further back. First I moved the screws to the next hole. Then marked where the other hole is, then drilled a small pilot hole for the screws. Ended up moving the metal pieces back about 3/4". Now the magnet catch works just fine. electricianjoel on Feb 12, 2014

I'm concerned the desk may be too white for my room. I have some white furniture in the room that isn't pure white. I may want to "soften" the white on the desk.

It is not recommended that you paint your writing desk. I would suggest that you search a little more on Overstock.com and find a color that you are interested in. If you do decide to paint, it would be recommended to go a your local hardware store and find a spray paint in the color you want. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 29, 2013

Does this product allow for cord management? Does it have the hole in the top to run cords? tidewaterplanning on Mar 7, 2013

Thank your for your interest in the White Writing Desk. Upon researching your question, I have found that the desk does not have a hole in the top to run cords. Please let me know if I can be of assistance on this or any other issue. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 11, 2013
 
No it doesn't, however the middle drawer does not have a back on it. I have fed my laptop into this drawer from the back so the cord isn't laying across my desk. When I need to use the computer, I just pull it out of the top drawer and during that time, I see the cord. When I'm done using the laptop, I just put it back in the top drawer and then there's no cord visible. The only time I see the cord is when I pull out the computer to use it. Hope this helps with some additional info for you. carrielane on Mar 13, 2013
