  • Sturdy-lidded basket

  • Four 1-by-2s

  • Latex satin-finish paint

  • Six 1 1/4-inch wood screws

  • Power screwdriver

  • Four casters and screws


  1. Paint the basket and lid.

  2. Position two 1-by-2s, cut 2 inches shorter than basket's length, inside basket, 1 inch from each side. Align with second pair -- cut the same length, mitered at a 45-degree angle, and painted -- placed on the underside. From inside basket, join three layers with wood screws.

  3. Screw casters to supports on bottom of basket. If you plan to put heavy books or plants on top of the lid, it's a good idea to insert a strong plastic- or wooden-lidded box inside the basket, flush with the rim, for additional support.
