In my pursuit to use every individual piece of your typical antique sewing machine base, I found a way to use the center piece that stretches across to each side panel.  It's a storage rack that mounts on the wall!  I cut off the top protruding piece to round out the design in the front.  Some vintage wire locker baskets work great for keeping things organized.  Some distressed wood, yardstick, and some copper-plated pipe hangers round out the design!
