      While assembling this product, I somehow managed to install a drawer upside down -- requiring several replacement parts to fix the mistake. Since the desk came from overseas, I assumed this would take forever and cost a fortune. That’s why I was surprised and grateful when the your Customer Care Team sprung into action. They went on a “treasure hunt” through several warehouses, soon locating and sending me the critical parts I needed to build a beautiful piece of furniture -- and at no expense to me. In my professional and personal careers, I’ve dealt with literally hundreds of companies. Overstock has, in my opinion, by far the best customer service! This in addition to offering an excellent selection of high quality, reasonably priced merchandise. As a result of this amazing experience, you people will now be my first stop whenever I need anything for home or office. And I’ll certainly recommend you to family, friends, and colleagues!!

      This desk is so cute! There is ample top surface to add a desk top computer and printer just to give a visual. We won’t be doing that but my daughter now has a space in her room for homework, coloring, and writing and she loves it.

    • I have this in yellow, but it looks like it's not offered in yellow anymore so I am choosing to post this where it might help. First of all, it's extremely heavy. I guess it's 69 pounds but it feels like 150. Some parts were scratched out of the box and the colored areas seem like a very scratchable material. There is a one or two inch gash at the back of the tabletop. I'm glad it's at the back. Now I'm going to recount my ordeal with this desk that I had today. I've had it for a few months but I put it together wrong (the top was backwards) so I decided to take it apart and reassemble it the right way. First was getting the drawers out. I've never seen this before but it appears common according to Google: you have to press down on these flimsy plastic levers on the side of the drawers. There's only like a quarter inch of the lever that you can actually reach. On both of my drawers, something wasn't right with the right-hand track so it wouldn't release with the lever. Luckily I managed to finaggle it out somehow, but in the process one of the tracks separated from the wood a bit and there's a gap there now. The process of removing the drawers probably took an hour. When I unlocked some of the bolts, the desk unexpectedly fell apart, and since it's so heavy it actually bent some of the bolts and put some cracks in the wood. I was really not amused by bolts being bent. I feel like that should be something that doesn't happen. I bent them back with a pliers. After getting the main body back together with a huge amount of effort, I went to put the drawers back in. Actually I had also disassembled the drawers in order to help remove them. The drawer fronts have the same locking bolt things but you can't turn them very far so the front sometimes comes off. Additionally, one of the tracks must have gotten damaged so that drawer will not open anymore. The non-working drawer is not the one with the separated track, so both of them have issues. Basically, now I have a super scratched up yellow desk (one of the drawers just looks like it's been in a war) with one working drawer. Not the best experience ever! I like the color though. I wouldn't recommend this desk in the end - if you like the colors I'd suggest painting another desk.

      My husband and I purchased this desk for our Granddaughter for her 8th birthday. Of course turquoise is her favorite color and I couldn't believe that we found a desk in a beautiful shade that compliments her room so well. It has two very large drawers which hold her pencils and writing supplies. It is very sturdy and is large enough and high enough that it is perfect for an 8 year old or an adult. Children's desks don't have enough room for a very busy child. We complimented it with a clear ES Robins Everlife desk pad from Overstock to make it even more durable and easy to clean. Just an overall great product.

      This is a very well made, very well packed desk. I thought at first it might be too "child like" but desk works really well in my studio. Be warned though -- the finish scratches very easily. Lay a towel down when assembling.

      I love this desk and it's color. Was not hard to assemble and took about 45 minutes. Holds my 24 inch monitor and printer which is just what I needed to get everything in one area of the room. With rounded sides I don't worry about bumping into a sharper edge. Product information is accurate. I have had this desk for a few days and would recommend it to a friend. This desk has met my expectations and is sturdy.

    • Great Purchase
      Verified Purchase

      This desk was a great purchase for the price point. It was exactly what I was expecting for a desk for a little over ***. I was in need of a small desk because i didn't really have space for a desk in my small apartment but needed one for the few times I work from home. Only words of advice I would say is if you're not mechanically inclined this desk might be a struggle to put together. As anything that is shipped it is completely flat packed and will need to be put together. The hardware is not your typical nuts and bolts. As with any assembly instruction for in-stock shipped products they are very vague. Images only. I would also like to add I lost or it was missing from the packaging one piece of hardware that locked the leg in place and when I contacted customer service to see if they could ship that one piece to me they were fantastic. They were not able to just send the hardware but offered a full replacement. I denied the replacement because it seemed to be more trouble than it was worth. I am hoping to find the piece or purchase it locally. When i denied the replacement they offered an in store credit instead. Which they didn't have to do. UPDATE: After a year or so of use I’m a little disappointed in the durability of the finish. It chips easily. I don’t use the desk a lot but just having my laptop on it chipped the surface.

      I was hesitant to purchase at first as several reviewers mentioned buying it for a child, but at 70 years old, I wanted something fun I could sit at with the computer. The desk is very sturdy and well made. No damage when received and easy to assemble which I did myself. The drawers have metal slides and certainly hold enough stuff for my needs with room left over. It's a nice addition to my guest room/office.

      Beautiful piece, but not enough storage. I suppose that's my own fault for choosing this, but just think carefully about how much desk storage you need. The drawers are really small!

      This is such a pain in the behind to put together. Otherwise it is a great piece. I love the color, it creates a pop in an extra bedroom. Not too big for a small bedroom too.

      I'd rate this three and a half if I could. The upshot is that it looks great -- I love the color! And it's perfectly functional and fairly sturdy. However, assembly didn't go fantastically. The instructions were easy enough to follow, but a bunch of the screws just would. not. catch. in the connector. It's possible this was user error... but most of them worked fine, so I'm not sure what I could possibly have been doing differently. (I checked the alignment and all to make sure they were able to go in, but they wouldn't no matter what.) Because of this, every time I tried to shift the piece upright I found a section that wasn't firmly attached, and trying to fix that required a fair amount of taking it apart and trying again. In the end, there were a few screws I just left out (luckily enough in each piece would go in that it stayed pretty sturdy) and getting it upright was tricky, but gravity will now hold those bits in place. And in the process of all of this it got a little banged up with some nicks in the turquoise color. So overall -- it works great as a desk! Now that it's together, I love it! The color, size, and shape are exactly what I wanted. But putting it together was frustrating.

      This desk is WAAAAAYYYY nicer than I could ever have expected! It is solid, heavy wood! Beautiful paint job and really solid and sturdy. The wood is really thick and heavy! Took about an hour to put together, but was an easy assemble! Only bummer is the one back corner was messed up... but at least you won't see that...

      I purchased this desk for my daughter, she picked out the turquoise color. It is cute in our home office but I was hoping for a little better quality. It’s barely more than cheap particle board, but I don’t think I could expect much more for the price.

        I was looking at this for a salon as well....wondering what the back looks like and I'm assuming you would want a glass top on it...but the glass would be more expensive than the desk.
