We had to drill a few of the holes out and there were more of some screws than needed and less of others than needed. Overstock was fast to help, amazing customer service. The desk is stunning. I use it to paint in my living room. After the issues assembling everything else is amazing, it attracts a lot of compliments, and looks as good if not better than the vintage achitectural desks I looked at that were thousands of dollars.
I found this desk to be exactly what I wanted. I was worried about shipping so far that there would be damage by the time it arrived but it came in great shape. Really well explained instructions on putting this desk together and it went really quickly. If there was any negative at all, I would say that I wish there was another piece of wood above the drawer so that the items in the drawer will not get any dust on them over time. I just laid a piece of fabric over my drawer to prevent this. The shipping was fast and I love the tracking, I knew exactly the day the desk would arrive.
This is a great product at a great price - only problem was bad instructions and a missing piece - which my husband improvised to fix. In general he said putting it together was a challenge - of course I just saw the end result and was happy. The nice thing about this piece is it takes up little visual room because of the design but provides the work space I need.
Very Versatile Art Table !!! ..... A.)Rea$onably Priced; B.)Table Tilts;
C.) Several Drawers; D.)Foot Rest & Can accommodate Children & Adults..
Got for My six(6)-Year Old Grand-son who absolutely loves.
I dabble in calligraphy, scrapbooking and card making so I wanted a desk that tilted and had a glass top so I could place a light source behind it. This desk fit the bill and as an added bonus its sleek modern design is beautiful. I've had it for about a year now and I love everything about it. It was easy enough to assemble. It took a few hours one evening of very distracted assembly while sitting in front of the tv so it didn't require a whole lot of attention. The assembly instructions were a little vague but not too bad. The tilt mechanism is easy to use and sturdy enough. My only criticism would be that the side trays are a little flimsy and have a tendency to pop off if you're not careful.
Beautiful piece of furniture!
Will complement a small to large room.
Tilt and height of writing surface is nicely adjustable for every need.
Very easy to adjust both.
Can't beat the value in price for the all the above!
Arrived early, too!
Totally in love with this. After reading tons of reviews, pricing these on other sites, and comparing features, I finally settled on this model with the drawer and folding shelf. I wanted a glass top for tracing and a side shelf to hold the rinse cup when watercoloring. Took forever to decided on white (which I really love and works very well with the other white furniture in my craft room.)
This comes with detailed diagrams which are actually large enough to see. From start to finish, it took two hours and fifteen minutes to put together alone and I did not find that I was needing any help. In general, I'm moderately experienced with assembling and, on the Ikea scale of trash to heaven, this weighs in pretty close to perfect. It takes a little time but everything lines up and every piece is high quality and well designed. I did find that the included screw driver was useless and switched to an electric screwdriver. After that, no issues whatsoever.
A couple of nice surprises-- the drawer can be opened partway and my watercolor palette fits quite nicely, making it easy to access. The pencil ledge can be adjusted up and down just a bit when assembling and, if you don't tighten the screws all the way, can be taken off completely if needed. The mechanism to raise and lower the glass top works smooth and easy and the stuff in the bins stays put without a problem. When putting on the clips that hold those bins, leave them a bit loose until you snap the bins in place, then tighten. No issues at all doing it that way.
Couldn't be happier with this and recommend it to others without reservation.
I needed a Home office desk/table that could be used in a limited space for laptop, drawing, doodling, (drafting). I wanted WHITE the "new" design color. This has some light grey and black caps/end caps with snow white table tops and off white legs and pencil tray. I would have preferred the sleekness of ALL WHITE everything, but for the price and quick free shipping - I cant complain. I worried that it might be wobbly since it lacks a back crossbar but its very sturdy/heavy. Having previous "assembly experience" helped to make the project go faster and less frustrating. The directions are very small, and a little hard to see, The packets are numbered which saves time and confusion. Its just what I wanted as a multi-function space saver. A beautiful design, I recommend it.
I love working on this table!, I use it to illustrate and work on my laptop. The extra trays and cubbies really help with all the art supplies that I use. Also I love that I can write on the table with expo markers and erase them easily.
My thirteen year old likes to draw and trace as well as needs a functional smaller desk for homework in her room. I bought this as a Christmas gift along with a wall bracket for her computer monitor. Shipping was quick, but putting it together was a little annoying. The instructions only had pictures no verbal written instructions and it was hard to tell if some of the pieces needed to be turned at a certain degree or not in order to assemble. Overall, both her and I agree it was a great buy. I now want to buy her a light so she can use it as a light box for tracing when needed. It has a sleek, modern look, perfect for any teen. I will also buy her a wheeled storage for underneath for all her markers, pens and paints. She loves the fact that she can place the glass flat or at a 45 degree angle. By placing the monitor on the wall it gives her the perfect space for both school work or artwork. I also like the black side parts of the table where she can place her wireless mouse, speaker and keyboard while drawing. I recommend for anyone who is limited on space that need a dual function of a desk and art/craft table.
I live in a small condo and almost every piece of furniture needs to do double duty. This one table has replaced a large drawing board and a computer/office table for me. Plus if I ever put down the top shelf it can become an extra table to eat on or spread out large projects. I really like the adjustable height possibilities. Seems very strudy. Quick delivery and a handy man type quickly set it up for me. I am an artist who also works a real job officing out of my home. I am almost living full time at this table. A great buy. Typing this on my laptop at the table. Very pleased. Thanks OS.
The desk is sturdy and completely functional as well as attractive. I am very impressed at the quality at such a great price. My only small issue is that the four pencil cups, two at each side are rather shallow and the pencils tip out. I solved the problem by using Dixie cups in the pencil holders so now they are cup holders. I had to split the Dixie cup down one side in order to squeeze it all the way down into the pencil holder but it really works great. Definitely happy with this.
Would have given it five stars but there were some issues. The box arrived okay. The flaws were that the shelf/foot rest was bent and the drawer looked like it was repaired (and poorly). Call the support line listed in the manuel and they were very helpful. Received a good shelf/foot rest but the drawer came bent. Call them again to request another replacement for the drawer and that one was good. All was complete until I started to use it for my larger drawings that I found that the table top dimension were off. It was not quite 24" as specified (42 in x 24 in) and was short 3/4". I don't know if that makes a difference for you but it did for me. Call the support line but unfortunately they couldn't do anything about the size. Disappointed about that. The assembly took a while. The drawer assembly was not very clear in the drawing instructions making it appear as if the holes for the screw appear off center. Otherwise, the styling is sleek and modern, very cool. Easy to raise and lower as well as tilting the glass top to the correct angle. Drawer pulls out smoothly. I would still recommend this product so I hope this review is helpful.
I'm an exploration geologist and decided I wanted a smaller draft desk to have at home for after hours or emergency work. This desk had mixed reviews but at the current price ($***shipped) I went for it and do not regret it. The item was on my door in two days. It was packaged very well and looks the exact same in the stock photos (except the glass is not tinted - but I knew that from reading another review so no surprises there). It was easy to assemble with good instructions that included diagrams on every stage. Took me about 40 minutes to assemble. It's sturdy, modern and looks very nice. It double as a light table for tracing since it has a glass top and has plenty of storage. Of course there are much nicer draft desks out there but for the price I give this an A+ buy.
I cannot say enough about this crafting table. It has everything I wanted and need on it. At first I was a little hesitant to order because of the reviews
about putting it together. But then I remember I have a husband that love a challenge of putting things together. Once he started on it, he had to stop because of other things he had to do. The next day after a good
night rest, it was put together so fast I could not believe my eyes. So to
say to everyone that is a little afraid to order because of the assemble,
just be patient get a good night sleep and work on it only when u are cool calm and collected. I really do love this crafting table . I have so much room to put my art work and supplies. Also the price was very reasonable. Again I cannot say enough good things about it. If u need a
large strong good crafting table don't be afraid to order this one. Don't
let some of the reviews scare U off like I almost did. ( Listen to your inner-voice) That is all I can say. For those who has this product, I hope
they enjoy it as much as I do.

This table weighs a ton! I bought it for my art studio and initially was very excited when it arrived. In order to get it into the room, we had to assemble it in pieces. (Keep the top off until you get it where you want it. I think we even needed to keep the legs off to transport it.) If you wish to sit down and work you will need a very tall stool or bar chair. I couldn't get it right...but I am on the short side. As we were putting it together something cracked in one of the legs. For us, we had to then keep it up against something to have it be sturdy so that it wouldn't shake. It is a beautiful table, I just feel it wasn't the best purchase for me.
I purchased this table for my husband and he loves it! It is easy to assemble and very easy to store. It did arrive chipped in two places but they were easy to smooth over. I would recommend this table for any project you have. We used it has a craft table. The table does not lay a true flat, however. Overall, a great product. Very happy with it.
As usual Overstock's customer service was easy to reach. Two critical pieces were missing so i had to wait about 10 days for the parts to arrive but Overstock made it ok. I really don't like having to go thru that kind of delay but I'll live. Over all it is functional for a retired old fart like me.
