I absolutly love this desk! I purchased it for sewing. It easily fits my sewing machine and serger on the desk area as well as inside the desk for storage. I love the design and massive amounts of storage. I have all my sewing stuff in one place-thread, scissors patterns are easily found with the see thru top while the bins on the side are large enough for storing fabric and ribbon. I also like that you can adjust the side shelves to your liking. The velcro bags that stick on the inside of the shelf with the side storage are a really smart design. I thought I wouldnt use them since when you open the cabinet, its only about 5 inches deep, but I am amazed how much stuff I have in there. This desk in ideal for anyone with a hobby whether its scrapbooking, sewing, quiltting...You can fit EVERYTHING in this desk. It also arrived in perfect condition very quickly. The construction was an all nighter with two people. The only problem I had was that NO directions came with the boxes but an email to the manufacturer cleared it up although the directions they sent were for their newer desk that had two extra drawers. Once we figured that out, it was just a matter of putting it together.
