For the price, and from the description, we thought this would be a mostly wood desk. It is not. Also, the instructions were poor, and my husband had to drill extra holes to put it together. Plus a lot of banging and trying to get the pieces to go where they are supposed to. Now that it is put together, it is a very nice addition to my daughter's new bedroom. It look nice and is sturdy. We just don't think it was worth the price we paid for it.
