Love the makeover. I have a couple of these as side tables/dressers. And yup, I've managed to store quite a bit in them. I think you've inspired me to consider changing their handles.

I went to Home Depot and the colour I saw didn't look at all like in the pictures here. Either that or my laptop's screen doesn't render it correctly.

And because I put my clothes rack in the bathroom for my laundry to dry, I set my timer to 15 mins to fold and put away everything (to say that I hate that chore is an understatement but the timer works).
