This is a great desk for my kids. It fits great into the space we have in the kitchen. My husband and son(3) put it together in no time. It is a little darker than I thought and a little bigger than I expected. My husband bought it and knew the measurements. I just looked at the pic online and agreed to it. So far it has held up to all the kids that play on the computer. I do not let them put out the desk part by themselves because I can see this getting less sturdy the more it is used. We are extremely happy with this purchase.
