I already checked Ikea online, saw that. Not too thrilled about the color or the sides, like yourself.

I want black or dark wood, a mature look if that makes sense.

Okay, the guy just said he also has a matching 6' book shelf. Hmmm...

I'm going to go and check it out, see if he can give me a deal. Thanks for your time, sdsester. I might be back with something.

At least I am confident the Wall family will get no major desk purchase from you today. My work on this was worth it for that reason alone. Hate that company and its approach to doing business.

Hey now, I buy all my Wrangler boOt cut jeans from Wal-Mart, plus dog food (Kibbles 'n' Bits), the occasional already cooked, hot and ready to eat small lemmon pepper chicken for something like $5, socks and Dickies.

I know what you mean though, big corporation sucking the little man empty.

Well, that Pier One desk was no where near big enough and that shelf that accompanied it might loOk good in a little girls room.

Good thing about that is the desk/hutch combo is now the frontrunner.

I have never set foot in a Wal-Mart and never will, for the exact same reasons.

I don't have anything against people who shop there - they're going to do it anyway. It's just a personal choice for me.

Good luck on the desk decision.

Btw, it's only for a lap top and not a tower that I need this for. Thoughts?

If you are looking at Wal-Mart you should try Sam's Club. They offer a bit better selection.

I'm not a member. But regarldess, I'm now on to bigger and better quality. I'm thinking I have two days before the sale on that desk and hutch at Office Depot is over so if I can't find something elsewhere of equal or higher value and quality by early-mid day Saturday I'll be buying that one.

Thanks though.

Sam's club actually does have a higher end furniture line. And as far as being a member you can join at the store if you find a a deal worth it. The membership isn't too much and most likely will be covered by the savings. I think it would be worth your while to check it out.

I believe you can. But you can't buy anything without a membership. If they stop you at the door just tell them you are thinking of joining and you want to see if it's worth it.
