Our kitchen chair finally had to go. Well, almost. I took it apart..and used the wheels for a dolly for the shop garbage can. I used the wood from the seat to make the base. Added some scrap wood along the corners and works like a charm. No more dragging that can around. Now to show it to my hubby. So hint..don’t throw out a chair with rollers!

Awesome. When I first saw the picture, I didn’t notice the dolly. I was thinking, “well, that definitely is a trash can”. :)

Great idea Cathy. I’m going to do that with my dust collector.
