I’ve fallen into a caster phase. I want to put casters on everything!

I went to a barn board resale shop and by the time I left I had 100 projects floating around in my brain and I wanted to put casters on all of them.

Everything needs a caster.  🙂

Let me show you how easy it is to put caster on table legs.

Our dining table is nice but needed an update. You guessed it, casters.

I ordered these online through Amazon. $24.00 for a set of four.

They arrived two days later and we got to work right away attaching them to the table. This is a very quick and easy project.

Seriously, 20 minutes is all you need.

Using the actual caster as your guide mark where you are going to screw it in.

Drill a pilot hole.

Screw in the caster and repeat for the other three legs. Then flip the table over and you are done.

Easy peasy.

These casters were about two inches tall, which logically raised the table two inches. That meant that I needed to add chair pads to make up the difference. Chair pads were becoming more and more necessary if only for the fact that I was tired of peeling myself off of the wood chair seat on a humid day. Gross.

I had intended to make some chair pads but Wade and I went to IKEA yesterday to buy Jack kitchen supplies for his new college apartment and I found these pads.

$5.oo a piece!!  I cannot make them cheaper than that. Six chairs pads instantly piled into the cart.

While I sit here and bask in all of the dining table update glory, I want to thank you all for following along with my backsplash posts. I would much rather hear your opinions than the sound of crickets.

Have a great weekend,
