Instructions

Step 1

Sand both sides, the ends, and the edges of the pine panel. Lightly round each sharp edge or corner.

Step 2

Drilling guide illustration.

At one corner, use a square to measure 3/4 inch from one end and 3/4 inch from the edge. At the intersection of the lines, drill a 3/32-inch pilot hole 5/8 inch deep. Place a caster on the board with the outside corner hole in the caster base over the pilot hole. Then mark the remaining hole locations, and drill three more pilot holes. Repeat for the other three corners.

Good to Know

Wrap tape around the bit 5/8 inch from the tip to show you how deep to drill. Work carefully and avoid rocking the drill even slightly when using narrow bits that can snap in two.

Step 3

Measure and mark 8 inches from one end along a long edge and 5/8 inch from the edge for the first cabinet pull mounting hole. Then measure 11 inches from the end and 5/8 inch from the edge for the second hole. With a piece of scrap wood underneath the panel, drill mounting holes to fit the screws that come with the cabinet pulls. Repeat for the second cabinet pull at the other end and along the same long side.

Step 4

Apply three coats of paint (Peppercorn shown) to the entire panel. Let the final coat dry overnight.

Step 5

Shoes stay organized but roll out of the way on this under-bed storage platform. --Lowe’s Creative Ideas

Screw the four casters to the underside of the panel. Then screw the two cabinet pulls to the top side.
