Hackers Help: Lappland TV Stand – Turn on its side?

Hey All!

The measurements and layout of the Lappland TV Stand would be a great fit in my mudroom – for a bench and shelves and to provide a frame for a beadboard backing to put hooks and such.  That catch is, that it would be PERFECT, if I can turn it on its side – so that the 72″ width becomes the height.

Do any of you who have built and use the Lappland know if this would be possible?

Thanks so much!
