I purchased this (with Headboard). Just finished it (I'm an experience builder\/carpenter) and it took 5 hours full time (even using power screwdrivers). It's much more complicated than most anything you can get from IKEA. No assembly manual was in the box (seems common). Walmart.com associate was courteous\/fair, but directed me to manufacture's phone. Over 45 min on hold and they happily sent a manual via email.\n\nJoints\/corners don't line up, instructions confusing, they give you \"stickers\" to cover the screw holes, cardboard drawer bottoms, color is more \"black\" than walnut, cheap hardware, etc.. If I have to move it in the future, I suspect it will fall apart. Cheap - yes. Value - no.
This Student Desk is a great addition to our Mountain Pine Finish group. The item is constructed with sturdy engineered-wood products. It comes with easy to follow step-by-step assembly instructions. Made in the U.S.A.
