Repurposed WWII Military First Aid Storage Suitcase Table w/ Sewing Machine Base & Yardsticks

I created this custom table with a vintage WWII suitcase, a vintage New Companion sewing machine iron base and yardsticks. I painted on the custom "first aid" artwork on top to give it the theme. You can see a full description of the project and process via the jump link.

    Very creative. Did you have that WWII first aid box in the family or did you find it at an antique store somewhere? I bet it has some stories to tell if it could.

    Very creative! I made my old sewing machine base into a table for my computer. It has working wheels on it so I can move it from place to place.

    Hello Patti! The repurposed table is now good for a hallway table, or good for a surface top and storage inside in any room of the house.

    Hey Joyce! Old sewing machine bases are so strong and great for so many ideas. Your computer table should last for decades!
