The product feels like cheap plastic and the inside of the drawers has a faux wood looking paper coating which rips off when you peel off the labels that guide the assembly. I have purchased these types of items from other companies and found that the materials and construction are better than this product- ie. the inside of the drawers on the other desks I've constructed are not made of paper, they are the same melamine coating as the outside of the drawer. Also, the drawer mechanism feels wobbly and the screws for securing the ends of the drawers do not lock as well as the other ones I've put together. I liked the look of the desk online as it matched the existing style of furniture for a child's bedroom but the product is not one I would have purchased had I seen it before ordering it. I'll be surprised if this desk lasts a year.
