Driftwood Melamine Tops
This is now my 10th set of Elfa drawers, three in my kitchen, one in my office two in my closet, narrow set in my bathroom, one for laundry and now this to set next my messy spouses recliner so I can organize his mail, laptop and more junk than you can imagine. We downsized and this is an easy way to mazimize the reduced space we have.

Perfect for me
The mesh drawers and driftwood top look great in my bedroom. The single depth top drawer holds small items and the wide double depth lower drawers are perfect for folded knit tops. I plan to keep out of season tops in the bottom and switch them to the upper drawer when the seasons change.

Driftwood Melamine Tops and elfa drawer frame
Perfect for my daughters needs. The sales woman at The Container Store advised us how to assemble the drawers and the trick to putting the top on without a problem. (you need two people) It was simple. For the money, its a bargain and perfect.

Customer service terrific!
We had a great experience at our local Container Store. The associates were extremely helpful and went out of their way to assist me. They even put together the units I bought. Thanks so much to the Container Store. The unit is as expected. It performs and looks good. It is an assembled product, so within that genre, I think it is one of the best looking products out there.

A little tricky to attach
I've now assembled several of these drawer units, so I have the hang of it when it comes to putting these tops on. But it was frustrating at first. They are held on by double-sided sticky (VERY STICKY) squares. If you don't have it lined up perfectly with the drawer unit and it touches one the squares, it's adheres instantly. Best to have two people, and take your time.
Also, it would be nice if they offered the top in the walnut to match the elfa Decor trim for the closets. I used two of these drawer units as an island/folding surface in my master closet. Everything has the walnut trim -- but not this unit. I had to go elsewhere to get something to match in that room.

Good but not durable
Love the color and pattern but the edges chip almost right from the start. Wish they had some protective edging or something on them.

This organizer is perfect for various functions. We use them in our closet and office.

I live and work in a 1-room studio, and decided to purchase Elfa shelving to help increase the storage in my space. Elfa is sturdy and very modular, so it fits in every space. In this case, I purchased the driftwood color tops to match my front door. All around good quality.

adds drawer space to your closet when you need it! Takes minimal space and gains huge space for folded clothes, socks, underwear, etc. in a very convenient location.

Stylish Clean Office
I just did my entire home office over in the Elfa pewter with driftwood tops. It is S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G if I do say so myself! In a 10 x 15 foot space I was able to comfortably design three desk areas and storage for all of us! I highly recommend these systems. So easy to install, change around if necessary, and cleanly store and organize everything. I put everything on rollers so that I can access wires easily; roll a file to another room if I need to; as well as clean under/around everything too. I only wish I had thought of this sooner!

Love the color
We bought these for the tops of our drawer frames to add some warmth into our closet. I love the color and the feeling it gives off.

great storage unit in closet
It was very easy to select parts I needed and was easy to assemble. I love that they have variation in width, height, and basket sizes. It perfectly fits into my closet. These are much better than other cheap storage unit or plastic storage units. Stronger and durable. Driftwood melamine top shelf makes it look sleek!

Elfa metal mesh stacks
I have purchased 3 sets of Elfa mesh drawers to replace plastic hobby drawers that were broken in my move. They are sturdy but easy to construct. I love the fact that you can have different size drawers in the same unit. Also, the drawers glide in and out very easily.

Allows further utilization of storage system and breaks up cold image of baskets/shelving.

Versatile storage unit
Easy to assemble. Comes in a variety of finishes and wire basket styles. Very sturdy. We are using this latest set in the study for storage.

Last year I brought an elfa unit that contained slides for hanging files. I brought a file cabinet recently and no longer need the runners for the files. What I needed was an additional drawer and a top to put on my elfa unit that would stay in place, be sturdy enough upon which to write, inexpensive and blended in well with my office decor. I looked into a glass top, but that was way more than the budgeted amount I had in my mind. The Container store came to rescue with the Driftwood Melamine Top. It is part of the elfa system and it fit all of the above stated needs perfectly. I'm happy....

This works great on Start a Stack and I plan on putting my printer on it for school and keeping my other office supplies in the drawers provided

I bought this for my granddaughter and when I asked her about it she said "I love it".

Organized and Clean!
I placed this just outside the door in the garage to hold shoes. Three boys can track in a lot of dirt so I have them take their shoes off before they enter the house. I added casters so I can easily roll the unit and sweep underneath.
Finally, no more tripping over shoes and screaming... each of us has our own drawer. Mommy is happy!

These tops are great. They add some style to an otherwise purely functional item. So glad I got them.

Great addition to drawer frame
I use the top as an additional storage shelf in the closet.

i LOVE THIS TOP!
I used to have the drawers without the top, but it did not look good, so I went to the store and I purchased the top. It does not only look good, but it looks more organized.

I love the way this tops of my drawers in my closet! It looks clean and just really looks great!

This Melamine Top is a Must
I purchased the Elfa frame and drawers about one year ago and just recently purchased the Driftwood Melamine Top. Elfa offers some great bells and whistles to add to their basic pieces. The top gives the drawer set a more finished look but now I have another usable surface.
The top attaches with adhesive strips. I am concerned that these will not hold up over time. I guess I'll have to wait and see!

Renting and did not want to put anything permanent but really needed organization in closet that was simply open space. This worked great for towels and sheets, Easy to assemble and looks good, too.

Okay, but need more color options
Very easy to add to the top of the frame, but my only color choices were this driftwood or white. My office has a platinum/glass theme, so I really wanted something in the platinum color. I wish I were more handy because I would have otherwise just relaminated a board with something from the hardware store.

Driftwood Drawer Frame looks good.
I was wondering how it would look but with the platinum color drawer system it looks great.

Melamine Tom and drawers
I had a mess of boxes with wrapping supplies like ribbon, tissue, bows, packing materials, etc. I bought the standalone drawer system x 2 for a 36" wide space. I have so many drawers on the 41" drawers that I have 2 open drawers for future use. The deep drawers are wonderful for bows and "pop" paper. The driftwood melamine top is the perfect addition to a nice looking but more importantly, useful setup for a wrapping station.

Great workable top
Installation of this rack along with installing the top was easy. The drawer unit looks great in our office. I wish it came in a darker wood tone - like dark brown, close to black without being black.
