This desk was easy to assemble and the instructions very easy to follow. It had a lot of pieces but all were clearly marked. It came well packaged with no damage. It took my husband and I about 2 hours to put together. It's very heavy and sturdy. I wanted a smaller desk for my work area and this one fit perfect! I would recommend!
Nice desk! Perfect for what we needed. The only issue we had was with the assembly of it. The instructions where pretty clear to follow. However if you don't know how to measure and have a power drill do not purchase! Not all holes where drilled right to measurement needed for drawers pulls. So had to adjust. Other then that not bad! Overall took about 4 hrs to put together with my 11 year olds help!
It took me a few hours to assemble this desk by myself. The directions are good as long as you read it and follow it to a T. One issue is the big drawer on the bottom doesn't glide as well as the small drawers. Not sure why they don't put it on the same type of gliders, but it is harder to open. And the top keyboard drawer doesn't work. It took me forever to get it to fit and once I jammed it in there, it barely moves and the front doesn't line up exactly with the frame. The sides of the frame got pretty scratched up when I was trying to get it in there. I'm not planning on using that portion for a keyboard, so i won't really need it, maybe just slip some folders and papers in there. Overall a decent desk that looks cute in my home office. You get what you pay for!
The desk is very pretty and looks great in my new home office. However, putting it to together was a challenge: the directions were good and all pieces were clearly labeled; however the cam-locks used for joining the pieces are not sturdy enough to hold the desk together if it is moved. While trying to move it from one room to another, the desk separated in multiple places. We finally took it apart and rebuilt in the room where it was going to stay. My husband glued many of the pieces. it is now very sturdy.
This is my 2nd ordered - 1st was in Black - now white
took me several hours to put together - and organize all the items and pieces - then I needed help to attached the sides, top and door. but worth it.

If you are really into solving puzzles and like to play those type of brain games, then this desk is perfect for you. This desk is probably one of the worts pieces of furniture that I have ever had to put together. And I have assembled a lot of furniture in my life.
The whole desk comes in three separate packages, loaded with styrofoam. Assembly instructions at first look like from some flying airplane manual. It's literally billion separate pieces and several different screws and bolts, that you have to correctly put together for it to become a desk. It's like you are building some complicated time machine and not a simple desk.
Quality of desk is mediocre/low. Uneven stain on top shelf. Screws and bolts are like in typical cheap melamine furniture. The whole construction is partially plywood and MDF. Not crazy about the desk nor quality of it. Should had bought similar looking 100% real wood desk from Ikea. Not to mention the ease of putting it together, compared to this nightmare.
I'm also 6'4" tall and keyboard drawer was hitting my knees, despite adjustable chair. I decided to modify this desk by simply not installing keyboard drawer. This way it's much more functional and chair fits perfectly under the top shelf. This desk in white was on sale when I purchased it. I would've had never paid full (current) price for this type of low quality desk, especially for amount of time it takes to put this piece of furniture together. Not worth it.
