The desk is great. Easy to assemble and very sturdy. However, one gripe is the picture online. Being that this is available online only, one can not actually go in stores and view it. In person, the desk has a much more red appearance than in the photo.
Again I am so pleased with the quality of the furniture I buy at Cost Plus. This is my second desk I have purchased from them. I love that it is real wood. The finish is very high quality. They include a finish pen to fix any scratches you might make. How thoughtful. And, if you can read you and follow instructions it is no problem to put together (especially when you have a handy husband - yes, I'm very luck).
I ordered this desk for my computer. It suits the room just fine and overall I am very happy with it. It arrived in good condition with no marks or scratches. The only thing was assembling it. Thank goodness my husband who is very handy. We were sent one wrong piece for the drawer that contains the keyboard. Although they were marked 7 and 8 they were clearly the same piece. That's where my handy husband come in. He was able to use the piece anyway and drill new holes to make it fit. Because of it's location you have no idea that he had to drill new screw holes. The other thing about assembly was that it was much easier with a drill and a very small bit. Most of the screw holes were only punched requiring a lot of force be place on the screw to actually screw it in. My husband again drilled the holes out a bit deeper to make it easier to assemble. While I recommend it I would also recommend that you have a handy man to help assemble it.
This is a nice desk. I was looking for something basic and somewhat inexpensive until I'm ready to buy a nice, big executive desk. The desk does look like the picture but I would've liked to have seen a picture of the back. While not very noticeable there are two screws that go into the back of the desk. This is an issue to me because I don't have it up against a wall. Also, the drawer pull is not the same as pictured. I was looking forward to the detailed design of the pull shown but the one in the box was just a silver round knob. Oh well. The craftsmanship could've been a little better. A preassembled piece on the bottom of the desk is coming off, not glued down or screwed in properly. I will fix this myself. Overall, if you're looking for something somewhat inexpensive that is functional this is a nice desk.
