The worst thing about this desk is that it makes the rest of my bedroom furniture look cheap! I've been scouring the internet for a desk that fit all of my needs. I needed something small enough to fit into the room that I rent, but big enough to function as a worktable for the hand crafted items I make. I also needed something sturdy enough to hold up to the that work, which entails hammering on metal. And because it's in my bedroom and I have to look at it every day, I wanted something nice looking in the clean yet rustic style that I like. The shelves were an added bonus for me, and replaced the cheap wire drawer unit I was using with my last desk. Overall, this desk my needs perfectly and it's excellent quality for the price. Plus, shipping was fast (and free!). Highlights: -Easy to put together, and no power tools needed -Sturdy. Not that I recommend it, but I could stand on it without worrying about it breaking (I'm about 130lbs). -Real metal and wood. -Should be easy to move. Despite being sturdy, it's not absurdly heavy so moving it wont be hard. And if need be, it shouldn't be too hard to take apart and put back together. -You can put the shelves on either side Things to consider: -The desktop is textured, so if you're planning to write on it you'll need to put a mat down. -This is not a large desk. It's a WRITING desk, so it's really not meant to be a large work space. It makes a really great laptop desk, and is perfect for smaller spaces. -The open space underneath fits an average sized office chair. Those big monster chairs some people have may not fit. Also, if you're a bigger person, this desk may not be very comfortable for you. Tips for a small space: Pair this desk up with some nice open wall shelves above it and a wall mounted lamp to free up space on the desktop. If you need easy access to plug your electronics in, attach a power strip to the underside of the desk or a nearby wall with some easy to remove 3M adhesive strips.
love overstock. have gotten great deals from them, but this desk was just ok. it was cheap, really, cheap, and worth exactly what I paid for it. harder to assemble than most of the pieces I have bought from them, and just nothing really quality or above average about it. if you want an inexpensive desk at an inexpensive price, this one can be considered. I would suggest spending a bit more and getting a better one.
made of pretty decent quality materials, easy enough to assemble, and is extremely convenient for space. Got the black one, very happy with it. Also quick shipping and boxed well to avoid any problems. It is heavy however, so if you are of small build or on a floor above the first maybe get some help so you don't drop or damage it.
