    You could totally do that. I wanted to keep them versatile and be able to use them as kids storage and a wall unit in the future. It would be easier for me to cover the small bracket holes on the side than screw holes on the top and bottom. The most secure would be to drill a hole and use a nut and bolt to hold it. The laminate is thin for wood screws. I also didn’t mind the (I call it “rustic”) metal brackets…it is a utility table not furniture. But, very good suggestion for anyone who wants it to look better.

    Why use ugly visible metal joining brackets ?
    Just screw the top shelves on to the lower ones.
