How to add castors to furnitureDo you have any pieces of furniture that seem a little low to the ground? I have a lovely sofa table that I picked up at a garage sale and wanted to use as a writing desk. When I placed the table where I wanted to use it, I realized that the drawer trim made it impossible for me to sit at the table with my legs underneath. The drawer was too close to the seat of the chair.

I searched around for some ideas on how to lengthen the legs and settled on casters.  I wanted the same old fashioned casters that were on my antique furniture pieces and after much searching, found the perfect ones at an online hardware store.

The casters I picked out are gorgeous vintage look wood wheels with stems that were the perfect addition to this table.  Here’s the step-by-step guide to how to add castors to a piece of furniture.
