Repurposed Red Wagon & Singer Sewing Machine Base Storage Table

I created this one-of-a-kind storage table mainly out of the need to get some of these sewing machine bases and wagons out of my workspace!  Haha.  I've seen ice trays and beverage carts done before but I decided to "turn things over" and make some sort of storage table.   This one could work in any room of the house.  Store away detergent and supplies in a laundry room, use this to help the kids keep the toys picked up. House your cookbooks and hand towels in the kitchen. Put away towels, rags and toiletries in a bathroom.    Plus, I never miss a chance to use more old yardsticks.  The square old measuring sticks serve as guides on the table top and a piece of wood strip from a piano I took apart serves as a back bumper to keep the vintage wire gym baskets from sliding to far back.
