Make a portable toybox

You can use any box to make a portable toybox. All you need are four castor wheels and some Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint and you have a portable toybox that can go anywhere! Designed by Erin Loechner at Design for Minikind.

1. After gathering our materials, we sprayed a primer coat and two coats of Rust-Oleum 2X onto the casters and let dry overnight.

2. Because the wooden base of the crate was thin, we cut thick blocks of wood to swallow the screws from each caster. This ensured a stable, sturdy fit.

3. We then placed our thick blocks of wood on the inside of the base and pre-drilled our holes in the bottom 4 corners of the crate.

4. Lastly, we used lock washers and screwed in each caster. Super quick and easy, right?
