At this point I would say “no ” to the stretchers, cause like Chris said, it looks like you’ve already finished it, and already have a finish on it. But— in the building process, if you were going to put in a bottom shelf, then that would have been the time to do it. Otherwise, now you would run into problems , and it would look like “add-ons” came later. Leave it alone!! I’ve made coffee tables with and without stretchers, and bottom shelves, but as you know, it all has to be done in the woodworking/ building. That’s my 2 cents.
