Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra closet storage Love this ( actually have 3 of these , 2 are taller one ) for extra storage in WIC. Looks neat with everything tucked away. Recommend putting on casters to easily move around. Even used in a regular closet that had a deep enough inner side to accommodate and still leave door opening clear. Quick assembly. Even better when they have Elfa sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Purchaser Since the 1980s I've relocated three times since my first Elfa purchase(s) to organize my sewing and craft supplies. The ability to re-configure the various components, as my skills, interests, and life styles evolved, is a definite plus. Numerous Elfa draws and bins keep my tools and supplies warehoused in two (2) 4-5 foot tall carts. Drawer contents are organized by the type of projects they will be used for. Be it quilting, candle making, clay sculpting, haute couture, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and so on. Then I have a desktop-height cart specifically reserved for an active project(s). When I want to make jewelry, I transfer the entire drawer/bin, and its contents, from the warehouse to the active project cart. The gift wrap cart is always stocked and at the ready. When it's time to fire up my kiln, which I must do it outside, because the fumes are deleterious to my pet parrot. Fortunately an Elfa cart can survive outside in a sheltered environment overnight. However I do cap it off with a top made of non-flammable material. As a recent retiree and new homeowner, of a 120-year old house, I’m now upgrading and re-configuring my Elfa components to organize my clothing, hardware, and gardening supplies. Elfa grids, once mounted to the walls, are now either hanging on the back of a door or have been strung together to form a screen/room divider. By the way, individual Elfa drawers and bins can be packed and shrink-wrapped for easy transport from one address to another. I also keep a spare drawer or two in the car to keep stuff from rolling around in the trunk.

This set-up has turned out the very best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the Best! I have now purchased 3 Elfa storage units for my closet, two wider and this narrower one. I have a bedroom with very little wall space for dressers, so these act as dressers within my closet. Easy to put together and so functional. This smaller one houses make-up, and bathroom extras as it is narrower. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use in any room I use these tops on all my elfa drawer units. They are great in the garage, utility room, closets, or anywhere you need vertical storage solutions. They are a melamine that can be cleaned and wiped down. The easiest installation ever, no screws or bolts and so useful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tops slightly too small I love Elfa - and was excited to solve an organinzing dilemma for my mom with four sets of elfa drawer frames side-by-side, each topped with a white melamine top. The tops fit fine if you have one unit - but if you put them side by side and attach the tops so as to not have a space between the units - they don't line-up. I've attached a photo so you can see how far off they are by the third unit. Overall the units look great, and the melamine tops are very sturdy and attach well with the strips - we solved our problem by putting the corner safety pad on the end, so the 'short' top was not noticeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and fits well This top fits the basket unit perfectly. It is attached with an adhesive tape. I'm not sure how effective the hold will be. It does make the unit more useable by giving a solid top on which other items can be stored. I use them in my sewing studio for storing my serger when it's not in use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HATE the new style top! I would give everything else a 5 star rating. But these tops I wouldn't even give 1 star if that were possible. I have some Elfa units that I have had for several years and love them. I just bought 3 more to add to the ones I have and the tops no longer fit down over the frame. Now you have to use tape to adhere them to the frame. WHY did you change them? The old tops could be lifted off at any time but were secure when on the frame. I have a large walk in pantry ready to finish and had planned to outfit it with the elfa units. Not now. Will find another option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful finishing touch We've had Elfa for years and love it. When I got some new drawer sets, I bought the melamine tops and I love them. They finish the drawers so contents in the top drawer are hidden away and the add additional room for extra storage, they are durable once you put them on the unit but be careful not to drop them before that - they are more fragile than they look and edges and corners can be vulnerable to chipping or bending, showing the pressed board underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution I love my elfa cart but I needed to change the way I was using it. I had mine set up for files so to change it I purchased 2 drawers and the melamine top. The top gave me the extra tabletop space I needed. And, by adding 2 more drawers I was able to adapt the cart to fit my current needs. Not only is it perfect, it is really nice looking. I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wrapping paper organizer The melamine top was the perfect finishing touch to my wrapping paper organizer. I had no plans of buying a table top and was going to leave the drawer open but once I put the casters on, the drawers became a great quick card writing table that could roll anywere for wrapping writing or stacking gifts for prep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Elfa I need to repurpose a drawer unit and needed a top for its new use. The drawer unit has been used for years and it's great to still be able to add to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa drawer frames and tops I purchased 2 sets of the white 8 drawer frames and the white tops to go with them and they are excellent! I love the tight mesh of the drawers because it's a lot more versatile than the wire drawers I've purchased at other stores. I also got the tags so I can label the drawers and it works great. The only issue I have is that you have to be very careful placing the top on the double sided tape. It's almost impossible to reposition if you miss and don't get it set straight the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Shelving is a Life Saver I replaced my pantry closet shelving, that drove me insane, with a new Elfa unit. What a life saver!

I use them as dressers and as a nightstand.

Can I purchase replacement adhesive for the top? I needed new rails and would like to reuse the top I already have.

Use of the top means you can't disassemble later?

I have a 15-year old drawer unit that I want to send to college and add a top as a bedside table/storage unit. The reviews describe the adhesive bond as permanent, meaning at the end of the year, we are not going to be able to break down the frame again for transport?
Asked by: 1997
I understand your concern. The older tops had two (2) dato channels on the underside, that interlocked with the frame of the cart. Securing the top in place. Yet still allowing the cart to be dismantled. If the cart is to remain stationary once it's assembled, consider one of the following. * Substitute the permanent tape for a semi-permanent tape, that can be removed with a solvent like "Goo Gone". * Substitute the melamine top for a reclaimed/repurposed surface; like a cutting board, tray, glass, mirror, tile(s). pavers, or similar surfaces. * Elfa once offered a drawer that baslcally amounted to a shelf, because it occupied a single runner. When placed in the uppermost runner it could serve as a top. Any flat, sturdy surface, that's thin enough to fit in the runner might work.

I want to connect several drawer units. Is it possible to buy a larger white melamine top to cover all of them?

I was tempted to do the same with two smaller ones but then purchased one larger one, but you are limited by the sizing of the Elfa products. I suppose you could make your own.

Is it possible to take the two melamine tops I have on drawers off to put a desk top on to use as a desk? Thanks

Yes, melamine tops are typically secured with adhesive strips. Pulling the top up carefully should allow you to remove the top.

I have the older, letter-size rolling file cart with white wire vs. mesh system. Will this top work?

Asked by: Cindergo
Yes, our Medium White Melamine top will fit on top of a Medium-width (letter-size) frame. However, the file channels of the Elfa Letter-Size Cart must first be removed as they are raised above the frame itself.

I want to make a desk between two of the mesh drawer unit...

I want to make a desk between two of the mesh drawer units. Having the drawer u it’s as the “legs” to support each side of the desk or tabletop. I’ve seen it in photographs, but can’t seem to find the components to make it work. Is there a desk or tabletop that is available to work like this? I’d also like to have the drawers slide out from shelves above the work tabletop area, is it possible to have wall mounted or shelving slide out drawers? Thank you!

are the tops waterproof?

can i use these in the laundry room where there will be wet clothes laid on top, soap, maybe spills, etc? will they warp? also are they textured or smooth?
Asked by: kissthedog
These tops are smooth, but they are not waterproof and the melamine coating could warp if wet for long periods of time.
