elfa Melamine Desk Top
Simple, sturdy desk
I was looking for a basic white desk, and this does the trick. I did panic at first when it arrived and I found it doesn't have predrilled holes for the screws. I was able to assemble the desk without a drill, using the supplied screws and a hammer to create pilot holes. A very helpful Container Store customer service rep helped with this. I assembled it by myself (one not-very-handy woman) and did fine. It is on the heavy side, so unless you've been going to the gym, probably better to have a second set of hands.

I purchased this top in sycamore with the white legs to be used as a computer desk. Very sturdy though the top had some dings coming out of the box. Love the color, a good value for the price.

Need to have a better quality products!
The top is sturdy and strong enough to hold my computer equipment and files. However, the desktop arrived with scratches and dents - plus there was a strange "white patch" on one side. I used that side for the bottom of my desk. The product chips easily, but I am hoping it will last my a while without looking like total garbage!!!

Elfa flexibility is always useful
Over several decades and 8 moves, I have mixed and matched the varied elfa parts for use in work and home situations. I delight in results of every new reconfiguation, as my need is always met. This new elfa Melamine Desk Top (white to coordinate with all my other elfa tops) and a pair of new elfa desk legs balanced by an old file cabinet on the other end and (by the legs) an old rolling elfa file cart all create a fantastically efficient working area with a tiny spatial footprint. With careful measurements and Container Store information, elfa never disappoints!
