Functional & Aesthetically Pleasing
Ordered my desk as a set with the Ameriwood 5-shelf Bookcase; had them shipped to the store. The box was in great shape upon pickup (delivery was even earlier than estimated!). I was nervous opening the box because of the issues others have mentioned with broken pieces. Tools needed to complete the task were generic: flat head, phillips head & hammer. I took my time reading the directions (difficult for me to do). The desk went together great; an accumulative hour or so to complete. The drawer at the top glides nicely and the piece looks great for what it cost! The MDF materials it's made of will eventually call for some contact paper to protect it against moisture damage. It's a great size - fits my 17" laptop wonderfully and there's room leftover for my little traveling mouse. I chose not to put the printer on that top curved shelf because it just seemed so bulky but it did fit. Great buy!jessc4343
THE HONEST REVIEW!!! PRO's & CON's
This a cute small desk. It is great for a college dorm room or if u want a small desk in your bedroom. It doesnt take up much space at all. I love the diminsion of this desk, it has cute little style to it. Though I did hit my head on the raised portion of the desk, because it can be hard to tell that there is a raised portion when standing up.
There is a cute swing cabinet attached to this desk where you can store books or printer paper ect.
CONS's not really a con for me because i have a laptop, but the keyboard area on my desk falls into my lap if i pull it out to far. I dont use this part but I dont like that i cant pull it out when i want to put my snacks on there! :-). and the final con is that the raised portion could have been made to snap into place. it easily moves if you lean on the raised area.(pro which makes for easy take down) But overall it is a nice cute little desk. If put together correctly it is very sturdy otherwise(my boyfriend put mines together). So nice for the price and meets expectation for a small work area. FYI small computer chair recommended, Wide chairs wont allow for comfortable seating.WallyWorldDiva82
I got the 'blackwood' color of this desk. It took be about 2 hours (by myself) to put it all together. I plan on putting wooden boards underneath the legs to make the desk a little taller. I plan on using this desk as a computer/writing/vanity desk. The drawer is a little messed up and doesn't look right (see picture). I may have to go back and make sure I did it correctly. Overall, a great desk for a great price!kgarrels
Perfect for a small space.
I love this desk. It's not too big and not too small either. The installation took me about 2 and a half hours to put together on my own. The parts were in great condition and I was not missing any pieces. It looks wonderful, my pictures cannot do it justice. The only thing I was worried about was the drawer since many reviews have complained about it but mine works smoothly. If you do have trouble, the last page of the installation guide explains how you could adjust it so that it works better. Take your time putting it together and read the instructions carefully and it should come out wonderfully. Overall if you are looking for a compact yet spacious desk for a reasonable price then this desk is for you.KarimaG
Perfect look and fit!
I'm on a budget and I needed a desk for a small space. If you're questioning the quality because of the low price, I was right there with you. I thought for sure this desk was going to be cheaply made and hardly sturdy and figured I could just use it as an interim desk until I could find a permanent one. I'm happy to say I won't need another one. I built this desk in about an hour and 15 minutes with just a screwdriver and a hammer. It wasn't hard by any means, just tedious. I have never seen a more clear and concise set of instructions in my life. Every screw and piece was clearly marked and packaged individually. The wood is light yet very sturdy and the black has such a nice, slick, smooth finish. It fits everything I need it to fit, including my old school monitor! The keyboard tray fit my keyboard and mouse perfectly and I'm not using my printer shelf for a printer just random stuff. I have room for drinks and a plate lol! If you align the door hinge and just tighten it really tight, it shouldn't come out crooked. Mine didn't but I have seen a lot of reviews where theres did. Just a quick wipe every couple of days takes care of the dust and other than that I have no complaints. You won't find a better deal for a desk! Get it!dodgexthis
