As both a student and a blogger I spend a lot of time on my computer, unfortunately my old desk wasn’t nearly big enough for me to get any real work done so I ended up spending hours sitting at the dining room table every day—not a good time. I needed a computer desk that was functional and stylish without being overly expensive and thanks to one of my favorite online stores, Hayneedle, I found a computer desk that has everything I needed and then some!
Hayneedle has been one of my favorite places to shop for some time now, not only do they have an incredible selection of home furnishings, they also have products that can stand the test of time and that is a HUGE plus when you’re a busy mom on a budget like I am. When I found out that I would be doing a review for Hayneedle I was extremely excited, I really do love their stuff, and I knew exactly what I wanted to review—a computer desk. Thankfully, Hayneedle has a huge selection of computer desks, there is truly something for every budget and every need.
In the past I’ve chosen my home office furniture based on how much space I had to work with within my computer room and in the past that space has been extremely limited. When we moved into our house last March we gained so much more room therefore I had more room to work with when choosing a new computer desk. I looked at so many gorgeous desks before finding one that fit my needs perfectly, the Bush Wheaton Corner Computer Desk.
About the Bush Wheaton Corner Computer Desk:
The Bush Wheaton Corner Computer Desk defines convenient. An included file component catches important documents and can be situated on either the right or the left side of the unit. Its corner design and small footprint won't hog valuable floor space. Printer storage on the desktop keeps equipment out of the way. And when you sit down at it for a bit of work at home, no one will mind if you do so in your pajamas.
This streamlined corner desk is constructed with durable laminate finished in a rich antique black at the base and a warm cherry along the desktop. Pedestal storage - including one large file drawer for letter-size files, one supply drawer, and two top work-in-progress slots for notes and documents - can be situated on either the right or the left side of the unit. A raised printer shelf at one side of the desktop frees the work space for projects, and maybe a few family photographs, too.
I chose this desk for many reasons, but the biggest reason was the large work surface and all of that space definitely comes in handy when I’m working on a homework assignment that requires me to use my computer and multiple textbooks at the same time. I also love that the storage drawers are so spacious and that you can place the drawers on either side of the desk. The corner design makes it so easy to find the perfect spot in your home office, or even your living room, for this desk. The printer shelf is also very convenient for people with small desktop printers.
When my desk arrived I was shocked at how much the box weighed, I seriously could not lift the box from the side of my house (where the FedEx man left it) to get it into the house and I knew that meant that I would not be putting the desk together on my own. When I opened the box (with my BIL’s help) I was instantly overwhelmed by all of the pieces, the hardware, the pages of instructions, to be honest, I wasn’t sure at first glance that I could even manage to put the desk together at all—I should have had more faith in myself. Even though there were a lot of pieces to the desk I managed to put the desk together, with a little help from my BIL, in about 4 hours—not bad for someone who has NEVER put anything together on her own. If I can do it, you can definitely do it! Once the desk was assembled I was beyond impressed, this desk is not only highly functional, it’s also gorgeous, I can’t tell you how many compliments I have received!
If you’re in the market for a new computer desk, or maybe you’re interested in another piece of home office furniture, I definitely recommend looking at Hayneedle first…you can’t beat their selection, price and quality! Check out Hayneedle on Facebook and Follow Hayneedle on Twitter!
