Bought this for my wife and didn't realize it was being shipped from outside the States but it arrived unharmed even though it's very heavy and not overly protected in the thin box. We put it together in about an hour without much trouble. The panels aren't labeled so care must be taken when assembling or one might find them self taking it apart and correctly assembling the panel(s). If the panels had been labeled and the colored screw covers fit better I would have given it a 5 star rating. There wasn't enough screw covers for all the visible screws which was interesting and a few don't fit so need to modify them. All the negatives are very very minor considering this is a mass produced desk; therefore, quality can only be expected to be so good. It did come with a stain marker for touch ups but thankfully we didn't need to use it. I don't know how well it matches the color but is nice to have regardless. Overview- instructions could be better Panels aren't labeled to follow along with instructions Caps to hide/cover screws/hardware could be better and some weren't included. Overall just being picky/technical but factory should supply enough to hide "all" metal hardware. And there were no caps for those that didn't want to install the small shelves on either side which would leave the holes visible. Assembly was easy Hanging the desk was easy with the supplied hardware but would recommend using better screws for the rail hanger. Bolts/screws for the hanging rail system were cheap/soft so an Allen Wrench style stripped easily. Purchasing 3 bolts/screws from hardware store would have been the way to go in hindsight. Very nice looking and modern touch with it floating on the wall My favorite looking desk of our 5 that range from handmade to mass produced Very happy overall and would highly recommend
I absolutely love everything about this desk. From its overall solidness to the beauty of the wood that's not a straight rectangle but cut as a handmade piece would be which follows the grain of the wood. I fell in love with even the way it was packaged; so beautifully and carefully all in one box with easy to follow instructions, each piece numbered for fool proof assembly and the tool needed to put it all together. A perfect delight for one of my first purchases.
Exactly what I needed to combine mismatched bedroom and living room furniture with style and imagination. Also ordered the chest/bookcase combination and am very happy with both pieces. I am a 76 year old female with heart problems, but had no difficulty assembling the two pieces. There is a slight chemical smell I the chest, but it us fading away. The top of the desk is slightly uneven, but that comes with the nature of reclaimed wood. And no monkeys or tigers or rain forests are endangered by reusing old wood.
