Repurposing Rollers...


I bought two plant stand holders on wheels for 50 cents at a garage sale last summer. When I spotted them I immediately knew I would paint them black and use them under my magazine baskets. I have two baskets that I over load with magazines making them ridiculously heavy when I have to move them on those rare occasions when I breakdown and dust under them. I thought putting the baskets on rollers would entice me to dust more often as the baskets could easily be moved. I should have waited to take these pictures until after I dusted. By the way...it appears that each holder was handmade.

I bought two blue (after all I can't resist blue) pillows for $1 at a garage sale this summer and those are stuffed in one of the baskets...not the best look.

Thanks for stopping by...

How clever, YOu must join me Friday for "Project Friday". Showing how you make that laundry liner would be an excellent project to post. By the way I think I once had a dress out of that material with white and red flowers. Hugs, Rosemarie

What a great idea, I love anything on wheels. I just bought some old porcelain wheels from the flea market waiting for a good use, thanks for sharing
