Rated 5 out of 5 by paw2014 painted cottage desk
Love the desk as well as the two matching bookcases. Would like to see a small narrow hutch for the back side of the desk for paper work or odds and ends. Thanks. PAW2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by PrairieCal Great Item but With Flaw
As always LLB furniture is sturdy, solid, and should last more than a lifetime. This great looking desk is no exception. I'm very pleased with it despite the fact that the drawer does not roll out well, sticks, the tracks seem flimsy, and possibly not in alignment. One track on my desk was slightly bent. I straightened it as best I could with pliers and used WD40 on both tracks. That seems to help, but the entire drawer system needs to be redesigned. It's cheap and not up to LLB standards. Still, I'm very pleased with this desk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HinghamShopper Nice desk, bad smell
Ordered this desk in the pale green color. Color is as pictured---very pretty. Desk is solid, well-made, and was easy to assemble. My only complaint is that it gives off an unpleasant "rubber" odor and the odor is still strong 3 days after assembly.

We bought this desk for our son's room. Everything was well packaged and easy to put together. Very pleased with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by VNat Good quality, fit and finish, and price.
The desk came easy-to assemble, including a hex-driver to install the legs. Overall fit, finish and quality were good for the price. The pull-out tray will work for a keyboard, although it was a little loose when pulled all the way out. It's not quite long enough to comfortably put a laptop on (13" Macbook Air) because the screen can only be vertical as it bumps against the top edge of the desk.(screen can't be angled slightly back). But I'm very happy with the way it looks and how solid it feels. It's too soon to tell how well the finish holds up to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nfmoon Good Quality and Very Easy to Assemble
Solid construction, heavy, and put together well. The only "assembly" required was putting the knob on the drawer and the legs onto the table top. Quick and easy and all hardware needed is included. There is also hardware included for attachment to a wall but it's not necessary. Table is strong and stable. Took me a few minutes from box to setting it in place. Packing is great also. I have a coffee table and end table from llbean and they were just as easy to put together. All are nice pieces of furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PBTathome Perfect desk for a small space
I bought this desk for my home office which is in a rather small space (approx. 7' x 10'). The desk fits beautifully (doesn't dominate the space) and the black finish I chose is lovely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by northwoods2 Great little desk
The desk arrived well packed and without any damage during shipping. My husband found it a breeze to put together and admired the well designed legs that made attaching it to the desk top simple and sturdy. One solid desk. There were some issues with the paint on the back of the desk, bottom of one leg (no paint at all), and a nick on the front. Others have had similar problems and it would be nice if quality control could catch these problems. Rather than send it back, I asked for touch up paint which I received in just a few days. (I have not had the time to use it yet.) I would have been happy to pay more for the desk if there were no painting issues and better hardware for the desk drawer which does not open smoothly and nicks the corners of the desk when opened unless one lifts up on the drawer while pulling it out. It would be great if LL Bean could improve the drawer design. Might have to see if my husband can do anything to fix the drawer movement/chipping issue.
Nevertheless, we like the desk and plan to order a matching bookshelf.

I bought this desk for my son's bedroom so he has a place to do homework. It looks nice in his room and he likes it. I was slightly disappointed when we opened the drawer to put the knob on as it looked like it has been "touched up" with another brown paint inside the drawer. My husband also noticed that there were two different brackets underneath the desk that are used for the drawer to slide in and out. I haven't called yet about it and don't know if it is worth shipping it back since it is on the inside and probably won't be seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Surfwatcher Great quality for the price
Lately the trend in furniture has been to downsize to "condo" size items. Initially I wanted a larger desk but once I got it I realized that it is perfect for the space. It is compact and does not overwhelm my study which is a small bedroom. I have other matching pieces from the Painted Cottage collection along with some antique pine furniture. Now I have a nice clean, comfy look for working at home. Perfect!
