Nightstand turned Kitchen Island

So does anyone remember one of my recent posts, here. Welp my dream has come true, and its finaly done!
See this nightstand...it has been beautifully transformed into a kitchen island...
BEFORE
AFTER
I butchered the poor thing, and ended up with the "skeleton" of my island :)
Got some pieces of these 4x4's. Cut em up a bit, and attached them to the rest...nice beefy legs ;)
Added some bead board, and paint {cotton whisper by Behr}
Topped her off with a wood top stained "dark walnut"
Then attached these hot little "shoes" to her legs...
added a piece of wood to the bottom, as a bottom shelf, also stained "dark walnut". Then finished it off with casters.
And Viola! Aint she perdie!
So hows that for making your dreams come true?
What are you all working on...hmmmm?
Come with me to these parties...
