Kitchen Island Progress - Part 2

I complete the cabinet assembly: Installing the french country legs, base trim, caulking, sanding. We have part of it painted - hope to finish the base coats tomorrow.
Here is island before the base trim was installed:

Here it is after the base was installed and caulked. Once it's painted, I will install a final shoe molding. Here is a neat tutorial on on how to do it.

I used poplar for the base, since it's pretty tough and takes paint really well. Here is the other end of the island. With the legs installed. The space at the floor is for the kickplate drawer

The next two pictures are of the hutch, which is the same design as the island. Tomorrow we will install the legs, base trim, crown molding, and get a couple of coats of paint on it.
The upper center cabinet will get dowel racks to hold plates.
