Wellesley Cart with Gate Leg Desk Extension is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy! I am thoroughly satisfied with this purchase. I was looking for a desk that was small enough to use in our motorhome and this fills the bill. I chose the cherry wood finish and it's just beautiful. Once we got it put together, it was sturdy and very attractive. We put it together on the patio which was a good plan because it gave the pieces a chance to air out. The instructions were clear, concise, with good diagrams, and they even included a few extra pieces of hardware in case one gets lost or broken. Castors roll easily and locks on them work well. I love that I can extend this to have extra working space, and I can close the gate leg extension when I just want it to be small. Great buy. I looked at hundreds of desks before choosing this one. I am so pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for! I purchased this storage cart because I needed something for both storage and workspace with my Cricut and needed it to take up minimal space until needed! It is perfect!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stinks!! Nice quality- exactly what I needed but my house still smells like chemicals two weeks later. I even put it outside for a full day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my space! A nice piece of furniture that serves a purpose. My husband put it together, with my help reading the directions, in about 2 hours. The small pieces came nicely packaged and numbered - a real help. Love the way it fits the spot I had for it and it rolls nicely. The only drawback for me was the rolling wheels looked like they had been used before but they work fine. As mentioned by someone else, it does take a while for the smell to dissipate.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Product, Smells Awful! Purchased this for my home library. I got the white option. It has been opened and out of the box for at least 2 weeks. Like one other reviewer, I found the off-gassing to be very off-putting. I've purchased several similar style furniture items, but not this name brand, in the past 2 years. Some did have an odor when first taken out of the box, but it dissipated quickly. Not so with this cart. It still makes its presence known in my library :-( I contacted the company and they only suggested that I either put it in a garage until the smell goes away, or ship it back to the company. So I will just wait it out and see if the smell goes away. It took me a long time to find what I wanted. My caution to you is to give plenty of time airing out and not have it in a room that is not well-ventilated. Regarding the assembly and instructions, No problem. I put it together with a 7-year old and we did fine! I do think the screws for the hinges are too wimpy and will need to be replace at a later date.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You Stink I don't mean in a personal sense. We have now ordered two pieces from Improvements and both off-gassed so badly that we had to put them outside for several days. Also, the first piece (the hutch) was very badly engineered with hing mounts that could not even begin to hold up the doors.

What is causing the awful smell? I put this together last night in a fairly large room and was the smell went throughout the entire house. It's January, 34 degrees, and we had to open the windows. I have a terrible headache. What is causing this?

Asked by: Tricia24
The wood and glue when packaged can give off a smell. However, if will fade. You can sit the item out to air it out a little faster.

Does the file drawer extend completely (ie. full extension)? Or is there space in the back of the drawer that is inaccessible?

Asked by: Nancydan
Thank you for your product inquiry. The drawer extends all the way out.

when bottom drawer is full and is opened, does the unit tilt forward?

I have one now (not one of yours) that tilts forward when the bottom drawer is open and is not stable...probably needs a middle wheel. I do have the larger unit in walnut of the Wellesley Cart, which I don't see listed anymore and was wanting to order this piece and the desktop organizer. Would appreciate a prompt response. Thank you!

Hello, all of our products carts and cabinets come with anti tipping hardware to prevent tipping and leaning. Thank you!

Will the swing up part hold a sewing machine and stay put while sewing?

Asked by: Luvstosew
Thanks for your question. Other reviewers have used a serger and it worked well. Since sewing machines vary in size and weight, we cannot guarantee that it would withstand the weight and be stable.
