About this item

Maintain your modern style with the Basic Desk from Project 62™. This writing desk has one drawer for storing writing materials and other office supplies and keeping the tabletop clutter-free. The narrow style is perfect in smaller spaces to make the most of the room you have.

Great for makeup!

I'm using this desk as a makeup desk. I really love the large drawer--I can fit all of my makeup inside! It keeps the top looking nice and clean. The desk doesn't take up much room and looks nice and classy. It was also super easy to put together by myself. *Pictured with the Brookline dining chair ...see moreof the reviewer's review

We receive our desk within very quickly and when it arrived, my husband was able to assemble it in under 20 minutes. I helped, so it probably could've taken him around 15 if he assembled it alone ;) The top portion came already assembled, all we had to do is attach the legs. The finished is smooth ...see moreof the reviewer's review

I'm using this desk as a vanity and it is just perfect. The height and the size are exactly what I was looking for. To be able to find a sturdy wood desk under [$] is fantastic. I would recommend this desk to anyone looking for something sleek and easy to assemble.see moreof the reviewer's review

I bought this desk in white and use it as a simple crafts desk. I love the style and am surprised by it's rigidness (no wobble at all). It is sturdy enough to hold my sewing machine or craft cutter. The large drawer works great for all my pens and craft cutting sheets. Super easy to assemble - the...see moreof the reviewer's review

Poor quality

I love Target and am usually happy with their merchandise. This desk, however, did not measure up. While attempting to gently tap in the very first wooden dowel, the area completely crumbled. Back into the box it went. I will be returning this tomorrow. I realize that it is made of particle boa...see moreof the reviewer's review

i selected this desk over others on the basis that i didn't want any press/particle board. the information stated that it is all hardwood. i have submitted a correction to Target, but should this be important to you, the only hardwood on this desk are the legs. the rest is a particleboard with a woo...see moreof the reviewer's review

I really love the style of the desk but unfortunately the quality was so poor that the desk came broken and had to be returned. The paint was peeling off of it when I opened the box. I was surprised because I am usually very happy with target products.see moreof the reviewer's review

Misleading photo - walnut color

I ordered the walnut colored option and the color was much darker than the photo and had no variation in the grain - looked nothing like the finish in the photo. The color is closer to a dark brown or espresso than walnut. I returned it and bought the same one in the store in white. Hopefully tha...see moreof the reviewer's review
