DIY Rolling Book Basket

I realized the other day that I never shared with you guys how I made this rolling book basket for Carson's Room, so I decided to throw together a quick post about this super easy project!

This is what you need:

I picked up my wire basket on clearance at Home goods for $10 and the castors form Lowes for about $3 each. For the base, I just cut a piece of plywood we had laying around to size and stained it the same color as the over sized chalkboard frame in the little guys room.

After staining and applying polyurethane to the base, I attached the wheels to the bottom at each corner using wood screws. I then used some small L shaped brackets to attach the basket to the base.

 I stamped a fun little name plate......

And now Carson has the perfect rolling basket for all his favorite books!
