This mission oak corner desk was very easy to assemble. Bolting the three side/back braces, pre-assembled top, and L-shaped bottom shelf together took less time than unpacking the whole thing! I purchased this desk for small-space living and it's a perfect compliment to the mission style book cases I've had for several years, along with a nice quality TV table from Ashley Furniture. All three are a slightly different color and style, but very much in the same tonal range, so they go well together. This corner laptop desk is a rich, dark reddish brown and it's just beautiful looking. I am very satisfied with the quality of construction, weight, and substance, and have already earmarked companion pieces in the same family for future purchase.
Pretty heavy duty once put together. The faux wood top and shelves look like real barn wood from a few feet away. I put it together alone and it was not all that difficult. Works great with the Nelson rustic console stand I bought to form a large L shape desk. WELL packed!!
I didn't want to spend this much on a desk for my bedroom but I broke down and bought it since the dimensions were perfect for my space. I have to say I'm very happy with my purchase. The desk is sturdier and heavier than I thought it would be. I thought the directions were pretty straightforward and easy to follow. Put it together by myself in about an hour. For those with limited space such as myself and need to know exactly how much wall space you will need hopefully this will help- the desk part is 47.25" wide and the part with the swing out shelf will take up 42.75" of wall space. I have just this amount of space on the wall that the swing out shelf is against and that is fine for me since I intend to leave it in the L shape. But if you are going to be swinging it in and out and want to do so with ease I would allow for a couple more inches.
This was perfect for the purpose that I purchased it. Not the sturdiest, but ideal for a small space as the L shape creates 2 smaller work spaces. It was harder to put together than expected, but still done in less than 2 hours.
