All the drawers are very sturdy. I love the designs on them. The two on the end have been decorated with what looks like oak leaves. The two at the other end are hidden by the drop leaf most of the time so are plain. The middle drawer has a nice curve to the front of it and the carved oak leaves. It has some round holes just inside that are meant to hold something but I have no idea what. I feel fortunate that the drawers are unlocked because they have a decent amount of space in them to hold some of my small supplies.
