I really wanted to like this desk. I really tried to like it. I bought it for my home office. Once assembled (fairly easy), it was smaller than I had envisioned, and just looked cheap. No matter... we put it into my 9-yr-old daughter's room. After a few days, it started displaying its flimsy characterics. We decided it just wasn't worth keeping. As we dismanteled it, it actually just fell apart in our hands. Out to the kerb it went!
