Shoal Creek Desk from Westminster, CO on 11/11/2014 – 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.

straightforward assembly from Troy, IL on 10/25/2013
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!

Wonderful Product from Glenview, IL on 08/14/2015 – Verified Buyer
This desk is press wood and heavy, but it is beautiful. I was leery due to some reviews saying it was easily scratched and took a rocket scientist to assemble. The truth is, I took my time removing the desk from the packaging, and read through the instructions before I started assembly. The directions were very clear and easy to understand, assembly took one hour without assistance (and I had to be quiet as my wife was sleeping in the room I built the desk in). My son loves it, the lines are clean and will work nicely for him and his little sister. This is one solid and sturdy little desk. Pros: Great value, Looks nice, Functional Cons: Missing one screw for the drawer, (But I had extras from other furniture)

Special Study Place creates a positive start. from Kanab, UT on 08/18/2015 – Verified Buyer
Everyone likes their space and to make it their own. Student's have little to say about their desks at school, but a home it came become a very special space with pencils, saved notes and things of yours within arm reach. Big enough to spread things out and not pile up while working allowing the student to actually research or read support material. Things can be left and remain undisturbed to go get a snack. The out of sight out of mind principle of homework may no longer be a problem. No book bags on the floor or couch. Easier for the books to come out and get used. Nice piece of furniture that is cheap looking. Pros: Combine with other furniture without being exactly the same. Cons: Recently purchased and no cons at present.

Spacious Writing Desk! from Grand Rapids on 06/30/2015 – Verified Buyer
Very solid piece of furniture. What attracted me to it was the simplicity. Easy to assemble and doesn't feel cheap. The top of the desk if very spacious and the picture doesn't do it justice. I easily fit a lamp and a couple of desk ornaments, and I still had arm room to fit my laptop and an accounting book. The only thing that bothers me are the drawers. They don't sit correctly and leaves a bit of a gap. I even adjusted it like the instructions told me, but didn't really help. Either way it's a great desk and a great buy! Pros: Spacious top. Drawers are very functional. Cons: Knicks and Dings. Drawers are weird.
