Everyone loves this! from Kew Gardens, NY on 06/23/2014 – Verified Buyer
I really love the way this looks in my foyer. And so do a lot of friends that see it. Its not too big or clunky. Its delicate and just a nice piece to have. I simply placed a portrait mirror and an orchid on top. The only thing I didn't like about this product is that its not that sturdy. If you put too many things in the draw on the bottom, it gets really hard to open. And it has slowly become wobbly. You can fix that kind of putting it back together but it would be nice if it just stayed together. Also, I do not use the fold out part of the desk because its not really that strong. The little draws have been helpful to store little things like pens, tape, receipts, batteries and keys. This is more for show than a ever lasting piece. I still really like it and hope it stays put for a long time.

Nice computer desk for our family room from Columbia, MD on 01/06/2015 – Verified Buyer
We love this. We needed a compact desk or table where our son could use his laptop in a tricky section of our family room, along a small stretch of wall between the kitchen cabinets and a sliding glass door. This little secretary is just right. It's more petite than a lot of desks, but provides enough surface area when opened to hold a large laptop and mousepad.

It wasn't immediately obvious to us from the photo, but the secretary is built with extending wooden pulls to support the writing surface when it's opened, so the weight of the desktop (and whatever is on it) doesn't rest on the hinges alone. I was worried that the surface wouldn't be sturdy enough to set the laptop on, but the supports solve that problems. Good design. The drawers are a nice bonus, convenient for storing office supplies like paper clips, pens etc.

We got the black one and it complements our decor nicely as well as serving its intended purpose as a laptop station. Very happy with the purchase.

Great vanity alternative from AUSTIN, TX on 10/02/2014 – Verified Buyer
My 1950's house has no counter space in the bathrooms (pedestal sinks), so I needed to create a vanity space in the guest bedroom where I could do my hair and makeup. I'm not a fan of the old-fashioned style of vanity and I wanted the piece to look more like a desk because it is in the guest room. After a long search, I ordered this piece. The small size (narrow, and the desk surface folds back) makes it unobtrusive. The large drawer fits all my hair stuff, including the dryer. Makeup in all the little drawers. Add a mirror and done. Only complaints are that the wood is sort of rough, there were a couple of minor flaws (scratch, chip), and the drawer has no glides, which means it can fall out if you pull too far and is a little difficult to push back in, especially if you have heavy items in it. But hey, that's what you'd expect for such a good price!

Great small desk with tons of character! from Hilliard, OH on 11/19/2014 – Verified Buyer
I ordered this in white for my 7 year old daughter's room. Delivery was prompt, assembly was simple and fast. It is well constructed, sleek white finish. I had to do a little searching to find a desk the appropriate height, but ended up with a simple desk chair with adjustable height --no problem. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the part of the desk that folds out is supported by extendable pegs that might not be ideal for a child who may tend to lean on it a little more than a teen or adult would. I wish those pegs were a little more substantial, but I truly don't believe it will be a problem. As to the style, it's just adorable. The seven drawers are so intriguing for my daughter who loves to organize. I'm very happy with the purchase.

It has tons of character, great style, nice finish.
Wish the pegs supporting the fold out desk were a little thicker to add sturdiness.

Great Piece for the price from New Orleans on 09/01/2013
I wanted to small accent piece that could function as a desk on rare occasion. I got the Oak finish. The Stain truly looks like an old piece of furniture. Looks just like the picture. There are 2 posts just beneath the fold out desk that pull out to provide extra support for the desk. The assembly was quick and easy......just have to attach the legs (maybe 8 screws or so). Im not sure I would get this to be a desk that was heavily used.....but as an accent piece with a added desk function.....it's a winner.

Gorgeous, functional from New York, NY on 12/07/2015 – Verified Buyer
This little desk makes me so happy. I use it as a vanity (the little drawers are perfect for jewelry and knickknacks) that converts into a desk when needed in my bedroom. I have the (slightly distressed) black finish which is a surprisingly great match with most generic espresso/wenge finishes.

It's true what they say about the fold-out top not resting directly on top of the pull-out shelf supports. However, if you put something heavy on the fold-out part, it does bend down and come to rest on the supports, so they're still doing something. I haven't had any hinge problems despite a little overextension.

Mine came a little damaged on one side but I didn't want to deal with sending it back and kept it. The slight distressing on the finish makes all normal wear and tear easy enough to camouflage; it's no big deal.

Great Little Desk!!! from Fort Gratiot, MI on 03/31/2015 – Verified Buyer
I purchased this desk to use as a make up vanity in our small bathroom. It is perfect. The little drawers are perfect for all your cosmetics and the large drawer is deep enough to hold my tri-fold make-up mirror and hair dryer and misc. brushes and combs. It is solid and I think it is a great little piece of furniture. The quality was better than I expected and the price was a great value.

Pros: Easy assembly, looks great ,lots of storage for a small desk.
Cons: I wish the large drawer was on better rails for opening and closing, just be careful not to pull it to hard because the drawer could fall out. I do not have a problem with that and that is the only con.

Maria from Texas from San Antonio, TX on 09/10/2014 – Verified Buyer
This is a very useful piece of furniture which serves the purpose of desk and storage. It takes up very little space. I got it in black and it is just like it looks in the picture and description . The nice thing is that all you have to attach is the side, the legs are already attached to the sides. Very sturdy with plenty of room for office supplies and other things.I would highly recommend this item to my family & friends.

Perfect size from Kirkland, WA on 02/17/2015 – Verified Buyer
I purchased this to fit a specific spot for my new business. Perfect for my laptop and the extra storage holds what I need. Loved it in black. One of the arm supports for the desk extension is too loose so not functional in support. We made an improvement to the legs by adding adjustable feet for our wood floor. This will also allow for uneven floors or rugs in the future. This is a heavy piece of furniture and is beautiful enough to occupy our living room one that will get passed down to my daughter. I do love it except for the minor issues with the support bracket.
