Well, actually, it's designed to be a craft table. Whatevs. It's a desk. Thanks Martha!
But first I had to put it together. ALL parts required assembly.
There were a total of 22 actual desk pieces, 124 pieces of hardware (including the drawer slides and knobs -- which I'll be replacing with cuter knobs), and 4 special tools.
It took 11 little bowls to separate the little screws and such.
And it came in a giant box.
It was fairly easy to assemble if you are patient, read the directions ...
and are able to reach odd angles while under low ceilings.
We did have one minor setback and that was that I'd assembled the drawer sides backwards, thus making the slides backwards and so when we placed the drawer in the hole bit, it smoothly went in but with a little too much gap. Back to the floor for more assembly!
But then it was a success!
