Ameriwood Desk Dover Collection - Staples - MamaMommyMom - #shop

Shopping

When deciding to start my office makeover project, I knew that new office furniture would be on the “must have” list.  Shopping for office furniture can be overwhelming at best, and I honestly wasn’t sure if it would be a “now” or “later” thing.  When Staples stepped up and offered to send me a desk, I started looking at what they had to offer online and wasn’t sure that I could make up my mind.

I knew I wanted my desk to be white, and I wanted it to be big and have some storage.  The desk I was working on in the family room was on the small side and offered very little in the way of storage.  In the end, the result was simply piles of stuff every where.  It was not working for me, and hadn’t been for a long time.  I knew I wanted a desk that had at least one other matching piece, or that would be incredibly easy to match furniture to.  I also knew that I wanted office furniture that was more versatile that the “stick it against the wall” desk I had before.  After some searching, some calling around and a trip to a Staples store to see the desk in person, I settled on the Ameriwood Dover Collection Desk and Cabinet (both provided to me by Staples) and ordered myself a matching Ameriwood Dover Entry Table from Overstock for a steal!

Ameriwood Desk Assembly - Staples - MamaMommyMom - #shopCome Together

My items from Staples showed up quickly and the packages were stout!  My husband helped me get them in and open, then we broke down the boxes for recycling.  I was kind of amazed at the number of pieces in each box.  My initial reaction was something along the lines of “Oh, God.  What have I done?”  To be fair, it had only been a few weeks since I had done a little IKEA assembly (and if you’ve never done IKEA assembly, let me just tell you… *bangs head on new desk* it can be – frustrating.)

I was pleased to see a nice, thick instruction book with easy step by step instructions (that included words!) and that all of the pieces were labeled for easy identification.  Never once did I have to guess if I was holding piece A or piece E.  It was fabulous!  While the assembly did take close to 2 hours, it wasn’t difficult.  There were lots of instructions to go with all of those pieces, but in the end, everything went together with no issues.  I did make sure to keep the desk pieces and the cabinet pieces separate.  Getting those mixed together would’ve been a nightmare!

With about 5 hours of assembly time under my belt, my new office furniture is complete!  I am super impressed with the sturdiness of all of the pieces and how solid each feels as a whole.  The tabletops have a wood grain texture, which gives the pieces an “expensive” feel without the expensive price tag.  The drawers open and close smoothly, though it did take a little adjusting to get the drawer fronts aligned properly.  I like that the desktop has a hole for cords to channel through, and that the desk sits on “feet” rather than flat on the floor, allowing for easy routing of the cords to the nearest outlets.  The cabinet has a large storage drawer, a file drawer and a cabinet with adjustable shelf.  It gives me somewhere to store all of my extra supplies (ink, paper, etc) while keeping them out of sight.
