Project 4 – Casters Make Everything Better
So I have a belief: cool casters make most furniture better. You name it - dresser, table, sofa - it can be improved if you have 10 minutes and some cool casters.

I Have a Bunch of These Clear Casters Just Waiting Around for the Right Project
www.Rockler.com is a good source for unique casters and www.NorthernTool.com is a good source for cheap casters. We get ours from various places for cheap. I buy cool knobs and casters on clearance and stock pile them until I find a use for them. Finding clear or colored casters is exciting! If I wasn't driving to South Carolina right now I would run into our guest room and grab a photo of the blue wool chair we have with pewter casters on the feet. But, I guess you'll just have to believe me - it is pretty great.
Another cool thing about casters is they change the height of things. For example, the play table above needed to be a tad taller and those casters were perfect for that. Plus my toddler can now drag a large white coffee table around the house - awesome ;)
