Top off your Elfa Drawer Frame with a handsome, scratch-resistant Melamine Top. Available only at The Container Store, it works great as a dresser top. The double-stick adhesive (included) insures it will stay securely on top of the frame. When Elfa Drawer Frames are placed side-by-side, these flush-mount tops allow the frames to be secured together with our Elfa Frame Clips.

Driftwood Melamine Tops is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great top for drawer unit but bad adhesive sticker I'd been eyeing these for my drawer units and finally got them in the elfa sale. I was worried they would appear plasticky but they actually don't- they are heavy and great quality. My problem is with the installation. The product comes with tiny double sided stickers to hold it in place since it simply sits on top of the frame. A) it was near impossible to remove the bottom cover from the sticker, to the point where I only used two instead of four stickers to hold the top in place because the cover just would not come off (even after ruining my nails trying to pry it out). B) I'm not sure what happens when I need to take off the top for moving and such. I'm guessing by the quality of the stickers that they will leave marks on both the frame and the top. I would think Elfa could have come up with a better way to secure these tops that doesn't involve cheap stickers. For example why can't there be a groove on the underside that fits inside the frame? It would then be easy to lift them up when needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra goodness -- Adding a top to your drawers makes an extra surface for storage and adds strength to your assemblage. Although not necessary, it's a good choice. The driftwood color works especially well with the platinum elfa drawer frame. It is a nice neutral, doesn't show dirt or scratches and a good choice if your drawer frame will be out in the open. When you assemble this top to your frame make sure you have it lined up before setting it in place -- the double sticky tape is meant to STICK FOREVER and if it isn't lined up you will just have to live with it! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Completes the Look While I don't think it's truly necessary to have this (as some items you may want to just have in a basket you don't have to pull out), I like that it completes the look. It also makes it easier for me to put things on top (such as the Linen Drop-Front Shirt and Linen Drop-Front Shoe Boxes).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Closet Looks Gorgeous with this addition! I purchased four melamine tops to go with the runner frame and mesh drawers to organize and hold my purse collection. This was the best investment I could have made. I was encouraged to clean out and downsize the amount of handbags I have, rediscovering purses that I'd forgotten I had. Love this!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from functional, mediocre quality This works well and the color looks nice with the platinum frame. However it is tricky to line up just right and the edges are poorly finished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maximize space 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Storage everywhere 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy 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....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

How smooth are the edges of these tops?

Could the edges snag my clothes?
Asked by: ShopsSonya
It's a smooth transition from top to side. I don't find the edges sharp, but they aren't curved either.

What are the white containers that fit so perfectly in these drawers?

The above featured review shows two pictures of Elfa drawers with white containers placed 4 across that appear to fit perfectly in the drawer. I'm looking for something exactly like that, as I'll be storing lots of Lego bricks and we sort them carefully. The clear plastic Elfa inserts won't work as we need to be able to remove each bin individually. What are the containers, please? I feel as if I've seen them at the Container Store but don't know where.
Asked by: Pheebers
The drawer dividers you refer to are our now obsolete White Divided elfa Drawer Trays. The white version has been replaced by our Clear Divided elfa Drawer Trays (shown below). Other individual bins you can consider are also shown below.
