My son really wanted this desk for school work. When I took all the pieces out of the box I noticed that on both of the sides had part of it broken off. I decided to glue it back together since my son really needed it and didn't want to wait for replacement parts to come. The broken parts are on both sides of the glass top and they are made of layers of compressed recycled paper type material wrapped in some type of plastic material. It went back together ok but there is no way to repair the broken plastic wrap so the line shows, especially with it being on the top. I am giving it two stars since my son still likes it despite that problem and Overstock probably would have replaced it if I had the time to ship it back and wait for the replacement. The title says it is dark brown, but the one I received is all black.
