Great small desk

from Florida on 11/19/2014 – Verified Buyer

It is a small student desk but has plenty of space for storage. It works for my teen's small bedroom. I messed up a bid putting it together and scratched the top (my fault, I was looking where I was putting it) but the enclosed touch up pen covered the scratches perfectly and now you can't even tell.

from Boerne, TX on 04/11/2015 – Verified Buyer

This desk is perfect size for small area. The pieces were a bit time consuming to put together; however, well worth the effort to see the finished product. The grain that runs through the material gives the appearance of real wood. It looks like a more expensive piece of furniture. Drawers slide well & are deep enough to hold more than the photo shows. The hutch finishes the appearance off nicely & is practical. Photo frames & a lamp fit nicely.

Great product for the price!!

from Ithaca, NY on 01/17/2015 – Verified Buyer

Easy to put together (As long as you have patience), takes time to put all the pieces together.
Con: Followed all the directions to the T but for some reason the drawers don't fit in right! and there was a small nick on the corner of the top structure (but thankfully the black repair marker it comes with fixed that!).
2.0 stars

from Stevens Point, WI on 09/03/2016 – Verified Buyer

The assembly for this desk is absolutely ridiculous. There are no instructions; just illustrations. Which really would be fine, if the drawings were legible. Half the boards were missing letters, which made the assembly that much harder. The holes that were pre-drilled into the boards were not aligned, and now neither one of the drawers close properly and there's a huge gap between the side board and drawer. It's ridiculous, it looks awful, and the drawers hardly open. One of the main boards for the assembly came with a cracked split in it, further making the assembly and final product an absolute nightmare. I really like the look of the desk, and it's the perfect size for what I was looking for; it's just a bloody shame the assembly, the damaged board, and the directions missed the mark. Just an FYI - the desk itself it's crazy heavy and definitely a two-man carrying job.

from Lowell, MA on 07/22/2016 – Verified Buyer

Pros-- cute little desk with nice storage drawers. Arrived earlier than expected. Cons-- The desk was smaller than expected. (Note-- I'm sure the stated size was correct, but seeing my 17 y/o son sitting at the desk is another story). I think this is a great desk for a younger/smaller student who has a very strong person available to lift the box. The boxed product was crazy heavy, and we ended up having to open the box where it was delivered outside to bring it in piece by piece. There was some damage to the desktop corners upon delivery, but it was far too heavy to return/exchange.

Does the job

from Odessa, TX on 01/20/2015 – Verified Buyer

This is my first Wayfair order. Desk came in quick. There was a bunch of parts to put together. My wonderful husband had it done in less than a week. I would say 4hours or so. The instructions are all pictures, no words. We are using this desk for basic small office. The back of the desk and the drawers seem flimsy. I would purchase another one for my teens room.

from Bordentown, NJ on 04/19/2016 – Verified Buyer

Perfect for my 11-year old. There are tons of parts... give yourself a bit of time to put it together. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the top piece (shelf) connects in such an odd way. We felt it needed more support than the 3 braces in the back so we added a couple of screws from underneath. Good quality for the price!

Nice desk for teenager

from Villa Ridge, IL on 12/23/2015 – Verified Buyer

I bought this desk for my teenage daughter. She really likes the desk, but there is a small, oddly-placed shelf in the middle that is more nuisance than helpful storage. Otherwise, it is a sturdy desk and the drawers open fine. Directions for assembly are not fun or user friendly.

from North Billerica, MA on 03/23/2016 – Verified Buyer

I love this desk. It is perfect for my son's room and was very easy to put together. The top piece was scratched/gouged from shipping and the manufacturer sent a replacement asap. Great product, great service!
5.0 stars

from Philadelphia, PA on 05/23/2016 – Verified Buyer

Desk is the perfect size, well made, sturdy, and looks really good. Not a fan of the hardware, which didn't fit correctly, but it didn't matter as I used my own hardware, which makes the desk look even better.
