Well, I just realized I never posted part 3 of this series with the final pictures. I guess 5 years isn’t too late to wrap things up. We have remodeled our house since the original post was made so the island has been moved to the basement and is now a Craft Center for our kids to play, make puzzles, etc.
The drawers were put back in where they came from and two shelves were added to the bottom. The middle shelf is simply sitting on top of some wood pieces I attached to the inside of the main compartment and the bottom one is just sitting on the bottom.
Overall, this project turned out great. I’d highly recommend trying something like this for anyone with some old furniture that you want to use in a different way.
