Decent little table

from Novato, CA – Verified Buyer

If you're looking for a spectacular piece of furniture, this isn't it...but look what you're paying for it. If you want a good, basic little table that has a small drawer for pens and so on, then this works. It's definitely easy to put together, looks okay where I have it and is perfect for what I need to do and is worth more than what I paid for it. The drawer really is too small for anything other than pens or very small things, so storage of paper isn't going to happen, but other than that, it's a good little particle board table. I'd definitely purchase it again. If the drawer depth were deeper I'd have given it another star. Pros: Very easy assembly Cons: The depth of the drawer was a disappointment and it doesn't allow for a full pull out. Also, the finish is a little tentative.

Great desk and unbeatable price!

from Nashville, TN – Verified Buyer

Great desk, and it looks just like the Parsons Desk found on other sites for a higher price...I think the quality is comparable. However, mine arrived with the front corner smashed in from shipping. When we realized it, we had already assembled the desk (and completely destroyed the box) and honestly didn't have the patience to send it back for a new one. I flipped around the desk to hide the bad corner, and it still works fine. All in all, a great purchase for under $75 that looks like I spent $200+.

First Wayfair purchase

from Warren, MI – Verified Buyer

For the price, this desk can't be beat. I needed something small and plain and this fit the description. The desk itself seems sturdy, however, I would not recommend the drawer for more than a few pencils. The drawer does come in the desk top (the drawer did have to be hot glued as it was broke) so assembly was easy, just put the legs on. This desk will be used for kids homework so should work well.

Using as a vanity desk

from North Plainfield, NJ – Verified Buyer

Overall easy to put together. I was surprised there was glue involved but so far it is still in one piece. I took away one star because the drawer could have had more depth & height to it. I cannot even fit a bottle of nail polish upright in it. The 'wood' material is also pretty cheap but. I do not mind for my use - but personally would not use it for a day to day computer desk.

Solid nice small white table

from New York, NY – Verified Buyer

I don't have much space in my bedroom but I needed something that was big enough yet small enough to fit next to a wall and my bed. This took maybe 30 minutes to put together because I didn't read instructions correctly and skipped some steps so I had to unscrew all of the legs. Simple to put together. Buy a glass countertop if you want to make it last pristine. Great space. Drawer is small and can handle pens some papers, note pads but not spacious. Solid value for sub $75 desk. Eventually I will upgrade. For now it was what I needed on a budget.

Came very quickly, it worked, but it was damaged both visually and structurally

from Carmel, NY – Verified Buyer

The table works, it was very cheap, and it came quickly. Having said that, as soon as we opened the top of the package we noticed the outside of the desk was damaged visually, and very noticably. When we were putting it together we also saw the inside structure where you attach the legs on one leg was completely broken. Thankfully we had some tools and we managed to rebuild it, and glue it together. It should be fine for a cheap temporary desk which is what we bought it for anyway, but it would have been nice to get a fully working and undamaged product.

Parson Desk with Drawer in White.

from Michigan – Verified Buyer

I like the size, I like the color, I like the narroweness of this desk that allows it to fit into smaller spaces. I was a little disappointed in the quality but it serves the purpose for which I purchased it for. It was also easy to assemble.

Extremely Easy to put together

from Blacksburg, VA – Verified Buyer

This desk was by far the easily piece of furniture I've had to put together. I simply put the legs on and it was assembled in 10 minutes. Has been great and sturdy. Using it in my spare bedroom for guests now.

Great for the price

from Philadelphia, PA – Verified Buyer

Giving this a 4 because it's a great deal for the price, but you get what you pay for. It's simple and sleek but the quality of the material isn't what you would get if you had a more expensive desk and my drawer doesn't pull out perfectly (it's fine to use, but you have to pull down on the left side a bit for it to smoothly slide out). However, given it's price, I am satisfied! The piece was easy to put together.

Easy to put together

from Naples, Fl – Verified Buyer

This desk is exactly what I was looking for. It is small and very easy to put together. The little drawer doesn't pull all the way out but it is adequate. After I put it together it was a little wobbly even though it was all tightened properly. It is ok for gently use, I wouldn't put anything too heavy on it.
