I'm an audio engineer and my needs are very specific. I designed and built my own solution from the Elfa desk top and solid shelving components. I've never been happier with my workstation aesthetically or ergonomically. And I had fun putting it together.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by designer79 Sturdy construction beautiful surface
I purchased two table tops and the platinum desk legs to create my own workstation. The table tops arrived double-boxed, so there was no shipping damage. The table top is heavy and sturdy, and the driftwood color is beautiful. I haven't spilled anything on it yet so hopefully it would hold up to that. The desk top does not come with pre-drilled holes, so you have to be patient and take your time attaching the desk legs. (In my experience, pre-drilled holes usually result in a loose fit anyway.) Tip: Keep the desk top sitting in it's box while you are attaching the legs to the bottom, so you don't scratch the top surface.

I used this across the top of three Elfa stacked drawers as shown in the mesh craft wall. The drawers hold a large amount of stuff and I was able to gather craft items from several locations and consolidate.The desk top makes a great work surface! I find the website a little challenging to navigate. I have to study it for a long time before placing an order. It seems like there might be some place on the website to actually list exactly what components go into each Elfa set up.

We have the Sycamore desk top and several shelves in the corner of our living room. The space serves as a workspace/computer area, but we didn't want it to look too much like an office. The desk is very low profile and ties in well with the shelves to look more like a shelving unit than a bulky office desk. It has a larger surface area and I love that it is totally adjustable/customizable.

Bought this to finish my craft room - when my daughter came home and saw it she was amazed and informed me when she goes to college she was taking the desk with her - bought in white with platnum legs. Extremely easy yo put together and very sturdy. Will be doing many crafted and homework on it. Thanks for making such a great product!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by SusanConti Relatively low cost table; difficult to assemble
This is the 2nd such table we have bought. One is being used as a laundry folding table and one in a home office. The metal legs and melamine top work well for these purposes; however the table legs are difficult to attach since they require drilling holes for the screws and there are NO markings on the table. Since the table top is not solid wood, any mistake could ruin the table. The Container Store should have markings added at a minimum or have pre-drilled holes on table before sale.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Chaoticpix93 Pretty, but that's about it...
There's a lot of complaint of the desk not having pre-drilled holes. That becomes a problem when the desk decides to chip. This stuff, is not the most durable particleboard I've seen. I have the veneer chip on the top as well. So I actually have a leg with one screw that wont fit in because it not only stripped the hole, but also took some of the particle board with it.
Cosmetically it looks great, it's wobbly though, probably from the legs only having 3 points to stabilize from. If you move it, take care because the legs bend a bit with only 3 points of solder on it.
However, it looks great, and despite the wobbly, chipping particle board veneer.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by apartmentperson 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Love2BeOrganized 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!

Bought this white melamine item as a desktop to serve as a bridge over two short filing cabinets. It was well-packaged and despite some challenges to the packaging en route, the item inside was unhurt. It is sturdy and attractive. It took two of us to get it in the house, unpackage it, and place it. But, it is now planted and works great. It's a nice large surface for many uses.

The melamine desk top can be used on either side. Good, strong construction. Long enough to accommodate your laptop, printer and an assortment of desk accessories.

This is a nice desk, big, solid and clean. It is just what I was looking for. I also like that I can add accessories I need as my office grows. My only complaint is that we had to drill the holes for the legs.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by texasshopper Great Family Desk
Absolutely great product. Heavy and substantial feeling. Only didn't give 5 stars because I had to drill pilot holes myself for the legs. Perhaps some people need the in tact top but would have been easier for me if either holes were there or CS offered to drill them for me before leaving the store,

I absolutely love the desktop that I ordered from the Container store. My husband added what I needed and I bought two (2drawer) file cabinets for the legs and I have the right size desk I now need. Great idea to be able to choose your own pieces to make it the way you want it.

I have had my Elfa desk for probably about 9 years and it's still in great condition. I love it so much, I have moved several times and it's been very easy to move. I have the white top and it's still in great shape that I won't allow myself to get the Zabra wood top though I'd love to I have to be practical. I moved back to my birthplace and there is no Container Store here. I miss it so much, I used to go in there once a week when I lived in Ft Worth!

I used the Driftwood Melamine Desk Top to create more work surface in my home office. It made the perfect "bridge" between an existing file cabinet and storage cabinet, giving me more work surface without using more floor space. It looks great and is very, very solid and sturdy.
