Q: How difficult is it to assemble... is it possible to get a look at the instructions?

submitted by Kelly - 5 years ago
  • A: Hi Kelly - We think that this is a great desk for that needed work space in your room. According to reviews, this one is an ease to assemble. Thanks! - Shelly

    submitted byShelly - 5 years ago

  • A: My desk came with instructions and it was the easiest one I have ever assembled. The drawer is already done and in tact with the top of the desk. All you will assemble are the legs and support bar. Super duper easy!

    submitted byMelissaE77 - 4 years ago
  • A: HARD... the instructions are not stright forward and it's annoying

    submitted byImani - 5 years ago
  • A: No instructions were included in our box. Pretty inconvenient.

    submitted byValerie - 4 years ago

Q: What tools do I need to put this together?

submitted by Victoria - 7 years ago
  • A: The last answer is wrong. You need a Philips head screwdriver for the cam lock system and to put the handle on the drawer. That said, I had to return this desk twice due to damaged parts. All ordered were site to store pickup. I would get something better if I were you.

    submitted byCovertleopard - 7 years ago
  • A: Hi Victoria - What a great desk to help you get your work done. The tools needed for assembly are included in the packaging. Hope this helps, thanks! - Shelly

Q: Is this desk made from solid wood or mdf/manufactured wood? It says "surface desk wood" but looks a lot like manufactured wood with veneer.

submitted by potato42 - 8 years ago
  • A: Mine is particle board

    submitted byHannah - 7 years ago

Q: What does the back of this look like? Is it something you could have facing the room, rather than up against a wall?

submitted by Jessica - 8 years ago
  • A: It is finished all over, so stand alone is fine.

    submitted bybeth - 8 years ago
  • A: The back is finished just like the front. It could face the room and look nice.

    submitted byOrange County - 8 years ago
  • A: I have it in white in front of a large window. Look gorgeous!

    submitted byAllie - 7 years ago

5/5 assembly instructions 3/5 product PRO I bought this to put in my super small room and was concerned about the length; however, it was not as big and bulky as I expected. The highlight was so easy it was to assemble. I bought a shoe rack from IKEA during the same period and the IKEA product was a pain to assemble, mainly because things weren't marked as intuitively. This table has fewer parts but everything was marked up with stickers so I didn't have to figure out which goes where. Super convenient. Even the tools were in separate slots with designated "steps" so I only had to open each tool when needed. CONS 1. The product arrived with some chipping, it's on the bottom of the drawer so I didn't care much, but if it was super noticeable and in a visible location it might bother me enough to return it. 2. Mediocre craftsmanship -- you can see gluing on the pieces, again it's on the bottom and out of sight 3. Biggest drawback: I ordered the espresso and it leaves fingerprint stains whenever I touch the desk. This is probably what going to bother me the most about the desk. Maybe it wouldn't be an issue if I went with a lighter color.

Mgs - 6 months ago, Verified purchaser
This is a bummer, usually target does a great job with their furniture. This says wood but it’s not. The legs are, the rest is particle board with laminate and not done well. It looks cheap. Was perfect for my space but between the fake look and the legs giving me a splinter right away I’m going to have to return. Sad

Not Wood Desk

2 out of 5 stars
Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
Dino Bravo - 9 months ago, Verified purchaser
I like wood furniture. The heading of this desk is "Wood". It is not wood but particle board and laminate. With the time invested to order this and receive it, I decided to keep it for my 14 yr old daughter. When she leaves for college, I figured I'll donate it. After building it, I noticed the pre-assembled top had a crack in it and a chip in the laminate. It's cute desk and she likes, I just don't like misleading headings. My fault somewhat for not looking at the specifications, but how often does anyone do this? When buying furniture, I'll be taking the time now. Most of the junk sold online today is laminate and particle board so lessons learned. Target is a good company. They sell decent stuff for a fair price. Just a tweak of the heading would be good: "Wood-like" "Faux Wood". "Wood Laminate" student desk. etc.

I’ve had this desk for over three years now! Still in great shape and sturdy. Lots of storage space in the drawer and I love the off white color. I’ve moved a lot and never even taken it apart during the moves. Still holds up perfect! I also remember it being easy to set up.

Love the cute look and I’ve had it for a few years now and it’s held up nicely; it looks just like new. My dislikes is that it is wobbly and the corners are sharp and dangerous but I put a clear rubber ( baby safety item ) to make sure no one would get hurt.

Brooke - 9 months ago
If you’re looking for something long, but narrow enough to fit into a smaller space, you’ve found the right product! I searched long and far for something to hold my 40 gallon terrarium for my leopard geckos, but I needed something small enough to fit between the bed and the wall in my bedroom. This fit perfectly! It’s both small enough and big enough to incorporate my entire space comfortably! The drawer is perfect for all my smaller items that go along with my lizards as well. :))
