    I love everything about this desk, from the color to the design. Seems to be very sturdy and easy to put together as well. I have absolutely no complaints.

    The desk is what we expected except that either the directions are bad, I can't follow them, or the holes were drilled wrong. The right side of the desk was not able to be installed correctly.

    I bought this desk for my daughter to put in her new apartment. She loves this desk because it is so cute and functional. It took about an hour to put together, and once together, it seems pretty sturdy. No problems at all.

    Although it said in the instructions that it would take 2 people one hour to put together, it took 3 people about 3 hours, and my husband used to be a cabinet builder! So many pieces! When put together it's nice and heavy, but the finish is strange. The top is textured from the paint being sprayed on. It's a even coat, but evenly bumpy, like sandpaper, but not as sharp. We'll have to get a piece of glass for the top for my daughter to write on paper without the texture showing through. The glass will also be helpful because the top seems like it can easily be damaged. Not worth returning after spending SO long building. My 11 year old daughter loved the modern style and is happy with it. I guess for the price, that's satisfying enough.

    I am in the process of completely redoing my 15 year old son's room. On the plus side, this desk is very spacious and sleek looking. However, the materials are not the best. (the wood is kind of cheesy and it's put together by glue and screws) And it took much longer to build that it should have. The instructions were confusing and were not easy to decipher. It was easier for me to put together a metal bunk bed than this desk. I figured this desk will last him 3 years until he graduates high school. I doubt I can take this with me when I move. However, it will fulfill it's purpose and accommodate his school needs for the next few years. This is not a forever desk- but it will do for now.

    I have had this desk now for several months. I am happy with the appearance and materials. I am extremely disappointed with two features. 1. the hanging file drawer....the drawer will not open far enough to get to the files in the back of the drawer. You hurt your fingers while trying to pull those files out far enough to take one out. You can't file anything in them. 2. the shelving on the end is not tall enough to stand up standard sized notebooks. You have to lay them down (both shelves). Wish I had known this before I ordered.

    Came with a dent on the table top, very hard to assemble even by my professional carpenter husband. He wanted me to return it as it looks like it wont last for too long.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "I know items are not always restocked on overstock, but do you know if (and when if yes) there are plans to restock the grey and white version of this desk?"

    Have an Answer? Be the first to answer this question!
  • Q:

    "Is the all white desk available? It does not show up as an option."

    • A:

      Unfortunately the white is out of stock at this time.

  • Q:

    "Will this desk hold a laptop and a printer?"

    • A:

      Yes, I have both on my desk, however, there are some flaws in the design of this desk and make it impossible to use the drawers.

  • Q:

    "Hi there! Can someone please tell me if there is a way to lock the drawers with a key ? Thanks!"

    • A:

      No, the front of my drawer keeps falling off. I am sure someone could figure out how to install a lock but I'd invest in a better quality product if you're going that route.

    • A:

      Poor quality product! Don't buy!!

    • A:

      A key and lock is not included.

    • A:

      Nope. Only if you installed your own desk lock. This does not come with a lock.

    • A:

      No. Try adjusting or reinstalling the "cams" that attach the side to the front of the drawer. We learned with another piece of furniture that it is vital to insert and turn these cams exactly as instructed or they do not work. Good luck. We were successful with our desk and the drawers are no problem.

  • Q:

    "Are the angeled shelves on the right hand side open ended on both sides? ie: if the right side was up against a wall could I access them from under the desk?"

    • A:

      Yes I love this desk it was for my granddaughter it's perfect size as she gets older

    • A:

      Yes, the shelving is open on both sides. One thing I don't like is that the large bottom drawer does not open up far enough to see the hanging files in the back of the drawer. Annoying!

    • A:

      yes they are open both sides

    • A:

      Yes that would be fine if you put it against the wall. It's open on both sides with plenty of space for whatever you want!

    • A:

      Yes, however you can't really put big books on it.

    • A:

      The shelves are closed on both ends I can put books in the front and stick a small tissue box in the back from the other side no crawling required.

  • Q:

    "What are the dimensions of the drawers?"

    • A:

      The inside of 2 top drawers are 13''ins.Long by 12''1/4ins.Wide and 4''ins.Deep. The Bottom drawer is 13''ins.Long by 12''1/4ins.Wide and 10''ins.Deep. The Bottom drawer holds Letter Size hanging File Folders size 9.25in X 11.75in. Hope that helps! If not let me know!

  • Q:

    "When will the all white desk be available ?"

    Have an Answer? Be the first to answer this question!
  • Q:

    "When beginning putting together can you put the drawers on the right side of the desk, ant the shelves on the left side of the desk. Opposite of the photo on the page where the drawers are on the left side. I would appreciate the answer, Thank You!"

    • A:

      I don't think you can unless you redo all predrilled holes

  • Q:

    "What size file holders do I order for the bottom drawer, please!"

    • A:

      This uses the standard letter size hanging folders, NOT legal size. The metal bars to hold the hangers are already included as part of the desk, so all you need is the folders.

  • Q:

    "is this desktop good to use for a desktop computer"

    • A:

      We don’t recommend using this desk for a desktop computer as this desk is a writing desk.

    • A:

      The desk is too shallow for a monitor and keyboard. It's great for a laptop

    • A:

      Yes this is what I am using it for. I do have an all in one computer so no tower.

    • A:

      They don't recommmend it, but u can use it as a desktop computer as well:) It is amazing!!!

    • A:

      That is what i'm using it for. Great lil desk. I have my tower and printer on it as well. So far so good. Love it

  • Q:

    "Do the bookshelves have a closed back or is it open? I would need to be able to access the shelves from the middle of the desk as the shelves would be flush against a wall."

    • A:

      It is open - you can access the books from either side.

    • A:

      It's open - can access from either side.

    • A:

      You can access from either side but it's just easier from the outside.

  • Q:

    "Hello!! I'd like to know what the shade of grey the grey/white desk is please? I understand nobody can be exact, there's so many greys. Maybe this is a better question to ask those of you that purchased it...I painted 3 walls a very dark/charcoal color and the window wall a very light silver color and my curtain panels are charcoal w/silver designs. All of the bedroom furniture is white with chrome hardware. Should I purchase the grey/white desk or play it safe and buy the all white desk? I would appreciate input from those of you that have seen the grey/white one in person please. I'd definitely prefer not to deal with returning this item!! Thank~you so much for your time!!"

    • A:

      The grey and white would look good. My daughter's furniture is black glass with chrome accents and her bed is a painted grey metal. The desk fit in beautifully. They grey is right in the middle .... not light but not terribly dark either. The desk is small but it was perfect for what she needed. My husband hated putting it together-- was not easy and he is very crafty.

    • A:

      Very dark grey

    • A:

      Sorry for delayed response; I was out of the country. I got the all white version and like it a lot....

  • Q:

    "If we buy in white, can we easily paint another color?"

    • A:

      We do not recommend painting this item, as it is MDF and once it has been altered, it can no longer be returned.

  • Q:

    "We purchased this desk but are having a problem with the drawers. The drawers will not fit into the roller guides. Can someone please explain how the guides are screwed in? Are the rollers on top or bottom in the cabinet? We just can't get the drawers in without falling out. And the middle drawer doesn't fit at all. Help! Thank you in advance, Lisa"

    • A:

      We had the same problem. If i remember right, the illustration was a bit off. On the drawer, the white glide part should have the phalange on top and roller in back. On the desk, the rollers are toward the front. To get the drawer in, tip it down to place the roller and then tip up to slide it in. Hope that helps!

  • Q:

    "When will the all white be available?"

    • A:

      The desks in white are now available for purchase.

  • Q:

    "How wide are the shelves and drawers? For the drawers, I'm hoping to find out how wide they are, as measured from the outside, as well as the usable space on the inside. Thanks!"

    • A:

      The top shelf is 13.75 inches wide x 9 inches deep x 10 inches high and the lower shelf is 16.1 inches wide x 9 inches deep x 10 inches high. The two small drawers are 12.1 inches wide x 12.75 inches deep x 3.1 inches high and the file drawer is 12.1 inches wide x 12.25 inches deep x 10 inches high.

  • Q:

    "What does the back of the desk look like? I'm interested in placing it in the middle of a room? is it painted or particle board?"

    • A:

      No, not good for the back showing. The part that has the drawer is a light fibre board, so not a good idea.

  • Q:

    "Will the gray and white be available soon?"

    • A:

      The ETA of the grey/white desk is approximately 12/16/2016.

  • Q:

    "How much weight can this desk hold?"

    • A:

      The desk can hold approximately up to 60 lbs.

  • Q:

    "How deep are the shelves?"

    • A:

      The top shelf is 12.1 inch deep and the lower shelf is 13.5 inch deep.
