Abbott Drop-Front Desk is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what we wanted. A usable desk to fit in a small area. Easy to order. Came right on time. Usable amount of desk space. Fits perfectly in a small space. It is exactly what we needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good size for small space The desk is a good size for a small space and holds quite a lot. The construction is not high end but neither is the price so I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble! Love interior color! This desk looks just like its photo. Love the interior paint color. It fits in the small space I needed it to fit into. The only thing is I wish it were a little more sturdy, but overall a great piece!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size for my space I was hesitant to order this from a catalogue but after looking in stores for a long time, I figured I'd take a chance. I'm glad I did. The wood is beautiful, size is perfect and it was not too difficult to put together. The only reasons I didn't give it a 5 are that the back should be finished in case I wanted to turn it around and the top drawers have no stoppers. They will fall out when you go to open them and can chip the wood if you are not careful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vanity/Desk Pros and Cons of this piece. I purchased it to use as a combination nightstand/vanity. The drop front is perfect for this - it comes down at night to hold my water glass, our baby monitor, iPad, etc. and then goes up in the morning to hide all of my make-up. Definitely a pro. Compact, smaller than many vanities which makes it perfect for our small (13 x 14) bedroom. It is fairly heavy and I wouldn't hesitate to place a laptop or something with more weight on the drop front, which is reassuring. For the cons, this will most likely come down to personal preference, but I find the finishing touches cheapen the piece. The "distressed" finishes are merely painted brown lines on the edges. I can see the brush strokes of the white paint on the sides. The inside blue is a nice contrast, but there was a blue paint drip down one of the sides of the drop panel part. The top drawers do not have stoppers or glides, so they pull and push back in awkwardly, if it's not lined up correctly, and can easily be pulled out (may be a pro for some, depending on what is in the drawers; mine house lipstick and glosses). I would purchase this desk again but only if the price better reflected the the quality of the desk.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Price and Quality = Disappointment I looked at this desk for a while before making the purchase. I liked the size, look, and color options; however, the price seemed a bit high. Since I've purchased many items from Ballard and been extremely satisfied, I decided I'd order the piece. I expected to (maybe) attach the legs because the description said some assembly. Again, for the money, I wasn't expecting to assemble the whole piece. Further, the back is not finished; the drawers easily get stuck or fall-out; and the wood is light-weight. I am very disappointed, but after assembly and attaching to the wall, not sure I want the hassle of returning.
