    nice size but beware

    PAM from Mesquite, NV– Verified Buyer

    This is the perfect size for a space challenged bedroom. It's nice looking and good quality, but it was not easy to assemble. Comes in a flat box, so expect to use up your time and patience. All parts were there and lined up as they should.

    Great little desk

    Interior Designer from Manvel, TX– Verified Buyer– Top 50 Reviewer

    We have used several of these desks in our office. They come in a flat box and you need a lot of patience to put them together, but they function well for light use in our space. Would recommend

    Shoal Creek Desk

    ken from Westminster, CO– Verified Buyer

    I ordered this for my Grandson (8) and after it came I realized it was almost identical in looks to one his sister got about 6 months ago. the difference is we did not have to add any reinforcements to the Shoal Creek model to feel safe about it. The instructions are clear and anyone that has a lick of ability putting a Lego set together can do this, simple-simple...screw driver and rubber mallet and all went well in about 30 minutes; mainly due to the fact that the material is heavy and I put it together on the living room floor(carpet). Good desk for the money, would recommend to anyone for kids room or for smaller spaces as a computer desk.

    Nice desk

    Heather from Fort Worth, TX– Verified Buyer

    This looks great and I am glad we found all matching things to complete a bedroom. We did run into a problem where the instructions were confusing and we were missing a peice, but the manufacturer replaced and shipped at no cost.

    Great Desk with Only a Few Flaws

    Gavin from OZONE PARK, NY– Verified Buyer

    It took about two and a half hours to assemble this desk, but in the end it was worth it. Really love the finish and overall sturdiness.

    Main flaw. The top does not secure to the sides completely. One of the screws on the left will not stay in place no matter how much I tighten--it comes loose every time after. Moving this desk requires a ton of caution, as the top is like to come right off. I think it might just be my desk, but I wish it was more secure all around.

    Works for what we need

    Amy from Escalon, CA– Verified Buyer

    This is a nice piece for the price. It works for what we need, and blends with our dark cabinets in the same room. It is particle board, but I think it feels pretty sturdy. A little time consuming to put together per my husband.

    Nice with Sauder Bookcase

    Toya from Liberty, MO– Verified Buyer

    I purchased this to match a bookcase that I'd purchased some time ago. It's heavy and rich-looking. Because of its weight, it may be easier to assemble with two people.

    Love the desk!

    lenzi from centerville, IA– Verified Buyer

    love it but it was banged up when I received it!

    straightforward assembly

    Beverly from Troy, IL

    I really like my new desk. Assembly was pretty much straightforward though the instructions could have been better explained and only half of the parts were marked andor shown on the inventory list. If you've put together this type of furniture before, you've already got an idea of how it all works. All the holes lined up very well, parts were all there. I only needed to adjust the drawer fronts a little and it all went smoothly.

    I'm using this for a makeup vanity and I put a glass top on it as well for spills, etc. I must have gotten the last white one because now they only carry the black one. It's very nice looking with my white molded leather chair. And the price was nice too--I had a 10 coupon as well!
