The main modification on this project is the locking casters that allow us to use it as an island or a side counter. The legs are also 4x4's rather than 2x4's. The tabletop is five 2x6's at 48" (just cut 8' board in half) joined with glue and pocket hole screws. I attached the top to the frame with three support planks and pocket hole screws (pic attached). The frame and legs are painted white and the top and shelves are stained with Minwax Ebony and three coats on Poly.
Ana, thank you again for such a great service to all of us novice builders. This was a blast and extremely useful for our family. We are most grateful!
