  • Nice Sturdy Frame
    Verified Purchase

    This is a good-looking sturdy desk with clean, modern lines. In response to other reviews which note the difficulty of assembling this desk I'd have to say it is no more difficult than the average piece form Ikea. Although the top and shelves are hard to attach since there are no pilot holes - the shelves especially since you cannot put them on the floor for better leverage when screwing them on the frame (as is possible with the top piece). Still, the frame seems to be solid wood and would easily support a glass top and shelves - which I am considering having custom cut at a glazier. Considering the cost of the desk, plus glass top and shelves, I will have a very high-end piece of furniture for a relatively reasonable cost.

  • Looks nice, but hard to build
    Verified Purchase

    I like the look of the desk, but the top piece was impossible to connect. In fact, I could not screw the nails into the top piece as the directions stated so the top piece is sitting on top of the legs without any screws connecting it. Most of the screws have specified pre-made holes that makes it easy to put together, but the shelves and top piece did not. I was pretty disappointed when I realized that. For the price its decent, but not amazing.

    this desk would have been easy to put together if it came with pre drilled holes. if your not handy or have tools stay away. not worth the time or the money...

  • Good construction
    Verified Purchase

    Like the desk very much for my teenager. I added black leather covered boxes from Hobby Lobby on the shelves, and it gives it a nic completed look. Very happy with the desk for the price.

  • wouldn't buy again
    Verified Purchase

    I wouldn't purchase this again if I knew the difficulty of assembling it. It's cheap and didn't come with directions. Many holes are missing or misplaced and they aren't properly put it so it's nearly impossible to put the screws in with a cheap little allen wrench. My fingers are almost bleeding and I'm only half finished. It's not worth the price or frustration unless you are a big strong man with great tools and much patience.

  • Not worth difficulty in putting it together.
    Verified Purchase

    The desk is okay, but it was horrible to put together - took me at least 3 hours. The holes were not even close to complete, so without a drill, and only an Allen wrench provided, it was painful and difficult to complete. There were at least 40 holes to do this way. I would not have purchased this had I known it was this difficult. Not worth it.

  • great for students with tight spaces
    Verified Purchase

    Easy to put together, very slim, but big enough for a computer - use in tiny space to maximize area
