How to Recycle Kitchen Island in New Apartment?

Good Questions

Q: Right now, I live in a 300 square foot apartment and use this kitchen island for additional work space and a dining area, as it has a drop-down leaf. I am moving in with my fiance soon, and our new kitchen won't fit the island.

I have an office area (the back bedroom downstairs), and I was trying to figure out a use for the island other than as a kitchen item. Any suggestions? Here, you can see the floor plan of the apartment as well as the picture of the kitchen island. Its dimensions are: 36"H x 36"W x 20"D.

Editor: Leave your suggestions for Christina in the comments — thanks!
