great prouduct - matches the description from Terre Haute, IN on 07/27/2015 – Verified Buyer
I got this desk three days after ordering. I put it together and set it up on my office and WOW - it fit in the space perfectly and it looks great with all my other furniture. I spend a lot of time in my home office and this desk and very comfortable to sit at. I Love it. Pros: Every easy to assemble - took 5 minutes Cons: No problems with this product

Decent little table from Novato, CA on 12/03/2014 – Verified Buyer
If you're looking for a spectacular piece of furniture, this isn't it...but look what you're paying for it. If you want a good, basic little table that has a small drawer for pens and so on, then this works. It's definitely easy to put together, looks okay where I have it and is perfect for what I need to do and is worth more than what I paid for it. The drawer really is too small for anything other than pens or very small things, so storage of paper isn't going to happen, but other than that, it's a good little particle board table. I'd definitely purchase it again. If the drawer depth were deeper I'd have given it another star. Pros: Very easy assembly Cons: The depth of the drawer was a disappointment and it doesn't allow for a full pull out. Also, the finish is a little tentative.

Solid nice small white table from New York, NY on 02/26/2015 – Verified Buyer
I don't have much space in my bedroom but I needed something that was big enough yet small enough to fit next to a wall and my bed. This took maybe 30 minutes to put together because I didn't read instructions correctly and skipped some steps so I had to unscrew all of the legs. Simple to put together. Buy a glass countertop if you want to make it last pristine. Great space. Drawer is small and can handle pens some papers, note pads but not spacious. Solid value for sub $75 desk. Eventually I will upgrade. For now it was what I needed on a budget.

Simple at the right price from Dublin, OH on 04/15/2015 – Verified Buyer
I think this desk is a great option for the price. I was looking for something simple without a lot of clutter below the table surface. This fit my needs and had clean lines. The assembly instructions were easy to understand and it didn't take long to put together. Some of the pre-drilled holes didn't line up perfectly with the provided hardware, but no one else will ever notice. It has a decent weight to it and the legs are pretty long, so I would recommend assembling it where you want it. I also like that it is simple enough to be versatile and could double as a console table if you no longer need it as a desk. Pros: Great value, minimalist, quick assembly, sturdy weight, versatile

First Wayfair purchase from Warren, MI on 11/11/2014 – Verified Buyer
For the price, this desk can't be beat. I needed something small and plain and this fit the description. The desk itself seems sturdy, however, I would not recommend the drawer for more than a few pencils. The drawer does come in the desk top (the drawer did have to be hot glued as it was broke) so assembly was easy, just put the legs on. This desk will be used for kids homework so should work well.

Great desk and unbeatable price! from Nashville, TN on 09/04/2014 – Verified Buyer
Great desk, and it looks just like the Desk found on other sites for a higher price...I think the quality is comparable. However, mine arrived with the front corner smashed in from shipping. When we realized it, we had already assembled the desk (and completely destroyed the box) and honestly didn't have the patience to send it back for a new one. I flipped around the desk to hide the bad corner, and it still works fine. All in all, a great purchase for under $75 that looks like I spent $200+.

Using as a vanity desk from North Plainfield, NJ on 07/23/2014 – Verified Buyer
Overall easy to put together. I was surprised there was glue involved but so far it is still in one piece. I took away one star because the drawer could have had more depth & height to it. I cannot even fit a bottle of nail polish upright in it. The 'wood' material is also pretty cheap but. I do not mind for my use - but personally would not use it for a day to day computer desk.

parsons desk from Spokane, WA on 07/23/2014 – Verified Buyer
I really like this desk Some of the reviews had me a little scared but took a chance and am glad I did. It was in perfect condition and when assembled proved to be sturdy. I used all the glue on all the places the legs came in contact with the top. I use it for a TV in my day care space. I have small white shelves under it for kids movies, The drawer opens just enough to store remote controls. The price is more than fair too.

Awesome Desk from Chicago, IL on 10/13/2014 – Verified Buyer
I was looking for a desk for my bedroom where I can write in peace before going to sleep. This desk fits perfectly. It was extremely easy to put together. Took me exactly 20 minutes to assemble. It is very sturdy. The drawer is not very deep, but it fits a small drawer organizer for pens and paper clips and a medium sized diary. The surface of the desk is large enough for my notebook, my laptop, ashtray, mouse pad, coffee cup. It's absolutely perfect and the white looks perfect in my Shabby Elegance bedroom with the white wicker chair I use for it. I am extremely happy with this purchase and highly recommend this desk.

Awesome Desk from Coldwater, ON on 12/29/2014 – Verified Buyer
I bought this desk so I would have somewhere to film my YouTube videos and this works perfectly! The drawer is a little small as it doesn't go all the way back but it's enough to hold a couple of my notepads which is all I need it for. The assembly was very easy and was well written! Everything also fit together perfectly (I have purchased furniture online from other places before and the holes for screws and such didn't line up) I am now awaiting my couch I ordered from Wayfair because I loved the desk so much! I hope it is just as perfect as this desk is!
