Instead of getting rid of older furniture and items, repurpose them using some basic supplies, a little elbow grease, and all-purpose caster wheels from Access Casters.
Online PR News – 10-September-2012 – Chicago IL – With the recent economic downturn, families are thinking twice about investing in high dollar items that aren’t necessary, like home furnishings. Instead of buying brand new items, more people are looking to purchase used items and spruce them up, or re-purpose their own older items.
Access Casters, the online leader in casters and wheels, offers affordable caster wheels that can easily be attached to furniture. While these items are usually used by hospital staff, they can easily be used for creative purposes. Plus, they are durable enough to support large items.
For example, an old dresser can be repurposed into a beverage cart that fits perfectly into the current retro trend. Inspired by the popularity of Mad Men, brand new beverage carts can run from $300 all the way up to $1000 depending on the style and make. Instead, crafty homeowners are repurposing old furniture items, like a dresser or changing table, into a beverage cart. By removing the drawers and replacing them with little doors or storage baskets, the dresser becomes more like a cart instantly. Attaching caster wheels is simply done by drilling a hole the legs of the furniture. The caster can then be inserted in the hole and secured with wood glue.
"Caster wheels are so multi-functional, they can be used for many different purposes," said Kelly Piechocki of Access Casters. "For less than $50, you can have a whole new item in your home, customized exactly the way you want it. Plus, there’s an incredible sense of pride in giving this item new life and having friends and relatives come over and admire it."
In addition to caster wheels, Access Casters offers stem casters, wheels, and other components. The Chicago-based retailer is well known for their focus on customer service and low pricing.
