      It's described as 'espresso' colored, but it's a bit closer to black than brown - otherwise, it's a good, functional unit for someone simple who doesn't want to spend a lot on a writing/computer desk. The ledge on the bottom makes a convenient location to place a modem or router, so overall I am happy with the quality and the price.

    • Great small desk.
      Verified Purchase

      I've been looking for a smaller desk and this is a great size for a small area. Price is good and built well. Took about two hours to put together.

      I bought this writing desk a few days ago. Despite their fast shipping, this writing desk is very easy to put them together. The desk is not that small, it still has space available after I put my laptop there and other paper works. Since I don’t have that much room available in my bedroom, it fits perfectly in my room with limited space. I really recommend it to people who want a comfortable workplace with a little space.

    • Black X Writing Desk
      Verified Purchase

      I received the desk a few days after I purchased but when I opened the box (which was badly beat up), some of the wood pieces were damaged. The wood on some of the pieces is flimsy. In addition, the instructions were not clear whatsoever so I can see the frustration other purchasers had. The picture looks like a high-quality sturdy desk, but it's very light weight wood.

    • I'll let you know when I finally finish Step 1
      Verified Purchase

      I've been working on Step 1 for two hours, and I still haven't gotten it put together. And I'm the handy one in the house. Ugh. Miniscule diagrams with poor labeling of parts. I'm having to take a break, and I thought I would be nearly done by now.

    • Looks great,assembly instructions not specific.
      Verified Purchase

      Once its assembled it looks great, but the screws that came with it were very poor quality and broke. We ended up using different screws. Also the assembly instructions are awful, Luckily my husband figured it all out by himself. For someone who is not that handy you will definitely have problems putting it together. In our case it would have been more trouble to return it.

    • Good buy
      Verified Purchase

      The only complaint I have about this desk is that the drawers don't pull out smoothly. Other than that, I would recommend this product for small spaces, as a desk, entryway table, or vanity for your bedroom. I purchased two to use as laptop desks in an office space. They look great sitting side-by-side.
