Awesome shelfajlacombeThis is a great shelf - it has some some drawers inside the shelf. It is super easy to assemble and I really find it useful on a day to day basis. It is a nice way to add some drawers to a place that would not normally have them (under a shelf). The ONLY downside is that it should come in some colors to match the other IKEA lines for drawers and dressers. Only having white means that it could possibly stick out in a room of all blue furniture. A black/brown offering would be a good next one to add - then maybe a woodgrain would be enough, but the new blue would be great.5
Vanity-drawersPaul13Bought it for vanity unit but does not come with brackets so make sure you purchase some brackets from somewhere. No notice on it to say u need to purchase brackets - eight messing about finding appropriate brackets1
Right sizeMomogirlSometimes you need a setup that is simple and minimal to keep your life organized. Bought this desk for my daughter to use as a vanity. She had just a small space available in her closet to make her own and she loves it. We anchored it to the wall to keep it steady and added Ikea peg boards for additional display surface and easy access to beauty products. Perfect combination!!!5
So in loveMeryn62I make everyone come into my room so they can see it! I am completely obsessed.5
Doing the JobNorwaterfordAll in all this suits my purpose as I need extra drawers and something to set my small TV on (on my desk). The downfall is that the drawers don't open very far so you really can't take full advantage of them, but they are fine for sticking papers in.4
LOVE.. but..Amanda34I have had these shelves up in my living room for roughly 6 months now. I LOVE them. They look amazing and are exactly what I was looking for! The only problem is they only come in white.. which is not my jam. I did go through the monumental task of painting them black (Seriously, took forever and was SUCH a pain!).. and it was totally worth it... but, come on IKEA! Help those of us out who just can't do white and add a black, gray, black/brown... anything!!4
good priceAlisa666I got it to use it as a vanity table. It took me less than 20 min to put it together. Because of the really poor quality, I had to spend another $100 to buy a glass to put it over the top. Otherwise, the top of this shelf would get destroyed in less than a month4
X Mas GiftGuerillaGucciBought this for my niece as a house warming present for the new house. She loves it, uses it daily! The minimalist look really adds a modern feel to the room.5
Used for vanity deskKay7110Used it for a vanity desk and I love it!!!!5
Great qualityMgarcia94Am so happy with it, use for my make-up5
Cute and lots of storageAphrodite122I love my Alex drawer set. It holds all of my cosmetics and personal products. I've turned it into a makeup vanity. However, the first shelf I purchased broke during assembly. I barely tightened a lock on the drawer piece and the partical board gave way. I had to replace it and the second one I had better luck with. Just be very gentle when assembling the drawers!4
SharrineTurned two of these units into my vanity.5
Poor Quality for PricesadiemaePurchased this in early November and assembled the same day of purchase. We found that the construction of this particular shelving was a bit flimsy compared to the many IKEA cabinets we have have assembled and installed previously. Also, once the EKBY Alex Shelf with drawers was 75% assembled, we discovered that the top plank had a huge crack going down the middle of it. This meant that it had to be returned an disassembled. Although a shelf with drawers seemed like a cool feature, they are really small and shallow. They would only hold small flat things like scissors, pencils etc. The plan was to add some shelving to a storage closet in our home-based art studio. We ended up buying two of the EKBY JÄRPEN Shelves in birch along with 6 EKBY VALTER Brackets. This setup allowed for better storage space, sturdier shelves and a better value, only $18 more than the EKBY ALEX with Brackets. WE were able to store about 12 gallon size containers of acrylic paint and varnish using the two EKBY JARPEN shelves with six supporting brackets total.1
Looks great!Rebecca50Love the look of this shelf on the wall. Great storage!5
PerfectNara1984I do like it, is not that big of space but it could be used for small items and papers mail, pens, organizing small stuff. Easy to install!4
Dana36I bought a month ago and so happy with this product5

Excellect usage....Well designedBlake403Handy for both storage and display. A chore to mount because of weight but once in place it's perfect. Looks well also.5
