How to make kitchen island open shelves useful

Our kitchen island has open shelving, but is not very deep and tends to just look cluttered when putting stuff on it. The other issue is we have an almost 1 year old baby who is going to start walking, so it’s really not practical to store things he can easily pull down.

Would love to be able to use this space somehow without removing the island. Initially thought about installing sliding cabinet doors but that might more of a project than I’d like right now because of the molding. Any other ideas or creative storage solutions that could be used here?

The shelves are about 8.5” deep and about 14” high.
