      Really great desk for the price! I needed a desk for my mother, who moved in with us and needed extra room for her computer, etc. She loves that she can fold the Murphy Desk up when not in use and "hide" her stuff, but easily fold it out and put her laptop on it. She is 60/short and cannot lift much, so this gives you an idea of how relatively easy it is to lift and pull out the desk top. There is not enough room for her little printer, but we have the desk next to her dresser, which allows for "overflow". There is definitely more than enough room for her rather over-sized laptop, some paperwork, and her various pictures and things she likes to keep around. The desk also keeps her organized in terms of having three little pockets for her papers, a nice little bulletin board for her memos and notes, as well as three little adjustable shelves for pens and note pads. Some notes: the desk is definitely black, not espresso colored (a previous reviewer said it was more espresso); it definitely takes two people to hang (everyone says this...they aren't kidding!); the instructions say to hang desk from studs, but we used some of the mega anchors--the ones that support 200+ lbs. each--and the desk is doing perfectly fine. Pros: easy to use once it is up; easy to pull up and down; keeps my mom fairly organized; adequate space; comes already put together Cons: definitely black (a previous reviewer said this was more of an espresso color...it is NOT); hangs lower than you think and looks somewhat odd when closed--like a really, really low cabinet; can only be set to one height

      Received this Murphy Fold-out Desk quickly from Overstock. Solid and Heavy and well-made. However, there was a chip with missing veneer on the edge of the desk's table that was stained at the factory to cover the flaw. The overall staining on the outside of the unit was good but some areas inside were missed. VERY heavy item required more screws to make sure it would be securly attached to the wall. We drilled more holes through the back panel of the unit and attached to studs in the wall to secure it. Murphy beds were a clever design and so is this desk. You can fold it up and get it out of the way when not in use, and quickly fold it down when you need a desk for writing, crafts, or to use your laptop on. When closed, I place a bench underneath the unit, and use the same bench to sit on when it's open.

      I needed a small desk with a lot of power for my teenagers room. They share a room and I wanted to reduce the clutter. This desk is the perfect option. It was very easy to put up; but you do need two people....also when using the template, take into account whether or not you have carpet. I need to lower the unit by an inch because of the carpet-when opened the desk would slope otherwise. All in all, Im very please and the kids are actually using it.

      Verified Purchase

      I ordered the murphy wall desk in the black finish for my Mom who is in assisted living. It looks quite expensive and works wonderfully. There are ample slots for her mail and the inside bulletin board is a nice touch. This product is great for someone who needs a small writing desk and bill storage in a compact space. The product in the black finish looks like wood but the finish is smooth. It blends well with the other espresso finished woods I used in the room even though some of them are on the brown end of the spectrum. The desk is very heavy and must be mounted in the wall studs so if you are thinking of centering it on the wall you need to be mindful of this issue. I had only one place to put it and it had to be mounted slightly off center. I solved the design problem by centering and hanging a wall clock above the desk which balanced the off center mount.. Also, when I pulled the desk down there was a slight paint run on the table top of the desk. I didn't exchange it since we needed to finish her room. You should inspect the desk carefully though since I didn't see this until it was mounted.. All in all this is such a clever,beautiful, functional item. I don't think you will be disappointed if you need a spacesaving desk or just don't want a desk sitting out. Love it and may order one for my own home.

      Very cool Harper Blvd Murphy Black Fold-out Convertible Desk. Perfect and ideal for a college dorm room. Unfortunately had to return but Overstocks customer Service is awesome

    • Great space-saving desk!
      Verified Purchase

      This Murphy Convertible Desk is great for people who don't have enough room to put in a full size desk. I love it! Just enough space to store only necessary items and not fill with papers that should be filed away. That helps 'me' out. :) The desk-top space is large enough for my laptop, beverage, notepads and in use papers and does not feel cramped. The unit looked new out of the box...I've seen reviews of items that some said appeared to be someone else's return. The black color is even all over. It is very sturdy and has a very solid desk-top surface. There was a strong smell that is dissipating with time. I took a soapy cloth and wiped all the surface to remove any residue that might be there from the manufacture of the desk and that helped. All pieces needed for assembly were included. One last thing...the holes for hanging it on the wall did not match the studs, because I only had a specific area in which to place the desk. Since it is such a sturdy item, hubby just drilled new holes in it at the studs exactly at the spot I wanted it to be placed. Perfect! And he used the same black screws, etc. that came with the desk. I highly recommend this desk and I can be quite picky. ; )

      We have a lot of issues in our home of the kids taking over the kitchen table even though they have places in other parts of the house to do homework. We purchased two of these to put up and let them put their favorite artwork on the outside so they knew which one was theirs. They really love this desk and it easily holds everything inside that they need for homework. The reason that I give it 4 stars is because sometimes papers will slide behind the shelving inside the desk and it is hard to get your fingers down there to pull it back up. If you are using this for arts and crafts instead of papers and homework, it would work well. The only other con is that it takes two, possibly three, people to hang this on the wall correctly to ensure that you perfectly align it for the desk to sit on the floor. And once you hang it, you really don't want to move it. I would recommend this product overall and it has handled two very rambunctious elementary school kids hanging on it and using it daily. We have had this product for 1.5 years now.

      This desk is perfect for my teens room and laptop, the desk area is enough to double as a little snack table. It is sturdy and well made. The fold out leg hinges are surprisingly strong. The design of the legs fitting into the wall cabinet make this an attractive feature. It must however go into studs at the right hight. There are pre-drilled holes at the 16" standard stud width (but my studs were off and I had to drill another hole.) It is a two man job to hold up at the correct hight. It does have to sit a little low for a standard hight of a wall cabinet but I have a mini fridge/freezer in this teen room which is at the same height as the top of the desk. It is also NOT a flat pack--so no making the thing up first! We are very pleased with the look and quality, let alone the good O price!

      I bought this for my 7-year-old daughter. She has a closet-sized bedroom (in NYC!) and it is just the solution we were looking for. It is VERY heavy--I could not lift it (single mom, no one here to help!), let alone install it on the wall on a stud as recommended. I just set it on a shelf in her room that was the right height and it works fine. She absolutely loves it and I do, too.

      Fits in my sons small room great. Keeps it off the floor for when he wants to do connect or has friends over but big enough for his laptop and school work.

    • Product matched the description

      No damage from shipping, had to drill additional mounting holes-but that is to be expected. Throw away the mounting hardware that comes with it and invest in longer screws and/or molly bolts. The unit is quite heavy and needs to be mounted well-or use a cleat across the bottom to support the weight. Wife loves it and it fits in laundry room perfectly.

    • Great functionality, atrocious quality control
      Verified Purchase

      I didn't return this item because I really needed it immediately... but I probably should have. It arrived damaged (pic included...box was in tact, I suspect I got someone's return and overstock never inspected it before shipping it back out). I glued it back together. Spray paint coverage was poor and there were some chips (see pic). Additionally, I think the shelves for filing paper were meant to be already installed but they were not, and I had to take apart part of the desk just to install them. If I hadn't had so many quality issues I would have rated this five stars bc the design is just what I need for my small space! Looks junky due to all the defects it came with, but, still works for my purpose.

      love the look....came in perfect condition.....used heavy duty wall anchors to hang because I could only hit one stud...for those of you who have no help to hang it.......you can take the box that it comes in ....turn it on its side....and it is the exact height you need to hang the desk.....just ordered the Christopher knight ball chair to go with it!

      What a space saver and easy to install. Just make sure you install it in an area with studs. I spray painted the front side with chalk paint, it makes a super cool area to post notes. I located it in my kitchen and the drop down is perfect to serve cocktails or appetizers from.

      It’s a great table for a small room like my son’s bedroom. We put the table down when he needs to do his HW and up when he finished. So he can have more room to walk around.

      Love this item. We've had it for over 5 years and it is holding up well. Our staff break area has limited space so this works wonderfully as a lunch table when needed. When done using can easy be folded back up to keep the walkway clear. Light weight and can pretty much be let down and put back up with one hand.

      This was one heavy item to carry but once I assembled it elegant, styiish compact design along nice shelf made is worth me carring desk up two fligts of stairs. Easy to stowed away and let down with use. It is an outstanding space saver and recommend purchase for anyone.
