Best desk I’ve ever owned with the exception of a few minor issues.I purchased this desk because I wanted something larger than what I currently had at the time. Let me start off by saying that this desk is wonderful. I like having drawer space to hide all my papers and things, and there’s hidden cord storage that runs the entire length along the back underside behind the drawers. I also like the fact that one of the legs is just a metal frame because it gives my computer more room to ‘breathe’.When the box was delivered, I had an awful time getting it up a flight of stairs by myself. It’s not that it was too heavy, but it was just an awkward shape. Keep in mind that I’m 5’2 and am only 110 lbs. It took me all of about 45 minutes to fully assemble by myself, and once together, it was actually pretty easy to move. The other thing I want to mention is that this desk is not plywood or solid wood. It’s your regular run of the mill furniture grade MDF board which is typical for most RTA furniture. Despite that fact, once I put the desk together I found that it’s extremely solid. The directions were easy to read and it was pretty much a no-brainer. The front of the drawers are completely flat, and it doesn’t come with any handles. I like the clean look, but within moderation, so I purchased two white 6” curved drawer handles and attached them. I couldn’t be happier!The only downfall to this desk that I found out the hard way is that because of the drawers, you only have about 24” from the floor to the bottom of the drawers. For most office chairs, that’s not enough clearance even with the seat at it’s lowest position. I finally gave up on finding an office chair that would fit and bought a stationary accent chair with a seat height of 17” which fits perfectly. In my experience with Ikea furniture, some pieces seem to be lower to the floor than others, so just watch out and measure before you buy anything. Also, for those who would like to know, the legs of the desk are in fact reversible and there are clear and precise instructions on how to assemble the desk if you’re planning on switching them around. The only other downfall was the fact that some of the pieces had minimal damage upon delivery. The corner of the top piece was chipped, but I was able to hide it with a picture that sits on my desk. The other piece was the front facing piece of the part of the desk that hides the wires underneath. Not really a huge deal as you don’t see it, but I had to glue it together as it was pretty much broken all the way through when I removed it from the shipping box.Overall, I’m in love with my new desk and I would highly recommend it!REVIEW EDIT: I’ve owned this desk for almost two years now, and I can say that for the most part, it’s held up pretty well with one exception. The top of my desk has chipped all around the edges, and it scratches very easily. I’m a 32 year old woman who doesn’t really use it that often, but the edges are peeling and chipping even around the back where my computer monitor sits. It’s much worse at the front where your arms rest when you’re using a keyboard or writing. If you purchase this desk, you might be better off buying a custom cut piece of glass to put on top to avoid the hassle and it would only cost about $50. The top of my desk has several scratches and I’m honestly not sure why. I don’t put anything heavy on it, and I only use it to browse the internet, so that really shouldn’t be an issue but it is. This desk has still held up better than any other desk I’ve ever purchased, so I would still recommend it but just be aware that it scratches easily and the edges will eventually chip and peel.

Love my vanity/deskLove the white color but the desk came with a few chips in it. 🙁 Still overall I love the color, how big the drawers are, it’s sturdiness, and the fact that there is a space that hides the cords behind the desk so that they’re not in an awkward wad in the floor.
Paying for name brand and shippingIve wanted this desk for years and ikea is either out of stock and shipping was more than the desk. Finally Amazon was a little cheaper with shipping than ikea and I just got it. When it arrived the package could be better with protecting it because unfortunately some pieces had cracks and chips, it’s not that noticeable once it put together but just the point that you paid so much for it to be shipped it shouldn’t be defected. Instructions are not too bad but pay attention to how the parts are facing ect, the desk is long and wide enough for what I wanted and the drawers pull out all the way and can fit a lot. I used it for makeup and was able to Combine my foundation primer beauty blenders and skin care in one drawerIt’s just one of those desk if you want it get it, but it is made cheaply and lightweight. A diy or dupe is definitely cheaper if you aren’t set on this certain Ikea desk like me.I’m happy with it once it was put together, aside from the disappointment about the crack and wood chipping because of the length width drawer size and how the pull out all the way. If you want it and can get pass the shipping get it but lower your expectations and you’ll be fine once you put it together
The drawers aren’t stableI ordered this and I had trouble setting it up. The instructions were a bit confusing. The drawers do not go out all the way and are a little crooked. They fall out if you pull them out too far.

Buy another deskRight off the bat there was problems. The desk came battered with a couple corners being completely scuffed and the wood underneath being exposed. Being an Ikea product, it was a pain to assemble, but looked good and seemed promising. There was almost zero sturdiness and it was very flimsy, as a gamer this is very frustrating. Finally, when I was moving apartments, the whole thing just fell apart when me and a friend tried to move it! The thicker side just came right off and the whole thing collapsed. I would say this is an error in my assembly, but I followed every instruction to a T and made sure all parts were secured tightly. I only had this desk for less than a year and I am very disappointed, especially for the price. Just buy another desk on here for less.

OkayI wish I could give this desk a better rating. The assembly itself was not bad, however the highly visible dents and chips is the reason for the low review. I shouldn’t have assembled it all the way and just sent it back.

Love desk, packaged well, worth the extra $I previously bought this desk from IKEA and my movers broke it (somehow put a big hole in the tabletop which is a hard feat since it’s very durable) so I was on the hunt to replace the desk. It was out of stock at every ikea within 500 miles. I knew it was overpriced on Amazon, I tried to wait it out a little to see if the price would drop to a more reasonable price, and it did (I should have waited longer because it dropped even lower lol) Anyway, yes it’s $80 at IKEA. If you live far from one though this is an awesome choice. I was really worried about the desk being damaged during shipment but this seller is amazing because they put Styrofoam around the box to protect it and then wrapped it in like saran wrap. The desk came fully intact without any damages. It was easy to put together (but this was my second time, remember the drawers really have to be at an extreme angle to fit in, videos on youtube) For me, because I just love this desk and didn’t want anything else it was worth the extra cost to have it shipped right to my door.

Good deskGreat makeup setup desk. The drawers are just deep enough for most products. Assembly took a long time, but the instructions were easy enough to understand. The desk is a bit wobbly, but it’s definitely sturdy enough. Absolutely no damage on the desk when it arrived, Which was my biggest concern because that’s what everyone else was concerned about. Overall, great desk.
Directions for putting it together were poorThe directions were poor. I was able to get it together by looking at the picture after part of it was together. One of the drawers was impossible to figure out until I had it all together and then flipped it over and put the drawer on. Otherwise my son likes the desk and it is really sturdy.
Great for a vanity!The media could not be loaded.
It’s pretty easy to assemble but the instructions could be better explained. I saw other reviews of some people’s desks damaged so I was a little iffy on purchasing this – also considering it’s over priced, but I don’t live close to an ikea so I took a chance and mine came in perfect condition. I wanted to treat myself being that I had a cheaper style vanity I made with 2 sets of drawer units from Michaels and a slab of wood from Lowe’s. It did the job and lasted for 4 years but was too low of a vanity so I went for this one and it makes the hugest difference. Plus I love love looove the sturdy drawers it has too. I posted a video of how smoothly they slide. I’m really happy with how it came out! You should really just get one! 🙂
