  • Buyer's remorse
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Desk, Sonoma Oak/Gunmetal

    I needed a small width desk and this fit the bill but did not have the right look. I would have returned it but return shipping was 1/4 of the cost of the item, so I will be repurposing it. It's only redeeming quality is the hairpin legs, which cost $25-plus per leg online. I plan to attach the legs to a thick slab of reclaimed wood when I find the right piece. PROS: The height is good for keyboarding, hairpin legs can be repurposed, easy to assemble, holes drilled in the right places CONS: Looks too short like a kid's desk, the tabletop itself looks nothing like wood, It looks cheap

  • As expected. Great accessory table, maybe not desk

    My expectations were pretty mild given the price, but I was pleasantly surprised that the desk was "as expected". CONS: The table top is digitally printed and embossed to look like wood. Not ideal, but for $XX you can't expect real wood. I use this as more of a secondary table, not a desk. The height is a little low for normal to tall people (I'm 5'9"). But I do use it as a craft table sometimes without a problem. PROS The quality of the wood reproduction is good enough that no one will take notice. And I actually really like the grey color. Yes it's GREY, fyi. As another reviewer mentioned, the hairpin legs are worth the price of the table alone. In fact, I bought this table half assuming that I would use the legs with another tabletop. (Thought they would look better on a bigger surface as well.) But in the end the small table fit nicely in the house. Overall I think this is a great accessory piece, but not ideal for a desk.

  • Good value and perfect for small quarters

    Option: Desk, Sonoma Oak/Gunmetal

    There's really not much to say about this table/desk — what you see in the pictures is pretty much what you get. It's a nice mid century-ish option if you need something small and are into the "fake wood" look that was prevalent in the 60s. Plus, it's quite a bargain — just remember that you're not paying for a keepsake piece of furniture. Very easy to put together. Like some people have mentioned, this is a fairly small desk — particularly in height. If you have a chair that's a little lower to the ground, it's not an issue. So, buyer beware.

  • Great table.

    Option: Desk, Sonoma Oak/Gunmetal

    I was specifically looking for a shorter than average desk with a minimalist style and footprint. At 27 inches in height (exactly as described in the listed dimensions), note that this is a good 3 inches shorter than your average table or desk. I'm 5'4", and this is the perfect ergonomic height for me to place my laptop keyboard (I pair it with an external monitor & riser). I am also able to use this for sewing, as it puts the working surface of my sewing machine at just the right height. The work surface is constructed of MDF/laminate (again, exactly as described), but the printed surface is attractive and the legs are sturdy and stylish. I can totally see myself replacing the top with nicer wood down the road, but it's exactly as described, took about 5 minutes to assemble, and perfectly suits my current needs. Be sure to read the fine print on the dimensions and materials on this, and if they meet your approval you will not be disappointed. UPDATE: I just ordered my second desk so I can have a dedicated computer desk and separate sewing desk. I'm so happy with these desks!

  • Looks nice, but short!

    Option: Desk, Sonoma Oak/Gunmetal

    Everything about this desk is great...nice construction, looks nice, good solid weight, the only problem...it's too short! At only 27 inches high, sitting at this desk felt strange (I am 6'4"), as if I was playing office while sitting on children's furniture. Just didn't work for me, so I am using it as a media table now. My record player looks great on it!

    This isn't a fancy desk and it's small (both size and height). But great value for the price and exactly what I wanted for my sun room. I love the legs and the Oak top is laminate, but looks like wood from afar. Seems water and sunproof. I figure I'd use it a few years, then take the legs off and attach them to a nice piece of reclaimed wood when it's time.

    Very good purchase; I had another desk from ****** which took my friend 1 and 1/2 hrs. to figure out and put together. This one took me 5 minutes. Looks good, saves me space, fits well. It had a small dent on the table but kept it anyway as returns are a pain and not that noticeable. It's under my computer right now, good price,and have extra space, Good choice. Would recommend.

  • Q:

    "can a keyboard drawer be attached and how thick is the top?"

    • A:

      3/4" thick. Very sturdy but I wouldn't add anything. The table is low to the ground as it is. If you add a drawer, there won't be much leg room. I'm short and this works for me. If you are average or tall, yikes
