I had shopped extensively on the internet for a small secretary desk. I found Overstock.com by far had the best prices! Make sure you measure your area, and take note of the desks' dimensions before you order! This desk is much darker-more like a cherry/walnut stain then what is shown in the display pics. It is beautiful! It was very well packaged- LOTS of styrofoam. It wasn't too difficult to unpack, but the styrofoam makes a pretty good mess. Here's a bit more info. regarding attaching the legs that was omitted from other reviews I read. There's 8 really long screws that get screwed into pre-drilled holes. The manufacturer includes a hex-head type tool to use. But about the 4th screw, my hand really hurt. For a woman I do have a lot of hand strength...it still was a bit difficult. If you have a ratchet w/ a hex bit get it out. The slot shelving is removable, it just slides out if you'd like more space. In the picture it shows items on the top shelf...FYI, that shelf is 7" depth. And the side section supports slide out automatically when the desk is opened- very cool! :) There are drawer-stops inside at the top of all the drawers that get turned downward preventing the drawers from coming all the way out. Just feel around for them. The one reviewer stated that they added some knobs. The drawers have carved-out sections for you to grab onto to open the drawers. But fold down door does not. You have to grab it from the sides and pull it down. Not difficult at all. I did not bolt it the wall as some have. I had stored some heavier items in the bottom drawer which no doubt helps prevents it from tipping. With the exception of a few areas where they missed a spot in staining (I just touched it up w/ furniture stain markers) the desk is well made and worth the money.
