Under the bed storage...

For spending $5 and about 30 minutes of time I'm pretty happy with how this project worked out.
I got an old suitcase at a garage sale.

Remove the top (I already know what project is happening with that, I'll show you when I'm done).

Then I bought a $4 pack of casters from Home Depot and used Gorilla Glue to stick them to the bottom.  They suggest you clamp it but wheels tend to be difficult to clamp so I just used the suitcase lid to rest on top for weight.

The glue foams and expands and I forgot to come check and wipe off the excess so if you use Gorilla Glue make sure you do that!  Now it fits perfectly under the bed, with a handle to pull to store shoes!
I love it when something works out, don't you?


What projects have you been doing lately?
