Adhesive Castor wheels for my ink tower? What?!?

  As I was browsing youtube I noticed that people were buying castor wheels and similar rolling things to put on the bottom of their trash cans so that it rolls around.  I thought hmmmm I could put these on the bottom of my ink tower instead of using a lazy susan. I found these on Amazon here . For a box of 8 pcs I paid 6.49.  They come with a circle tape pad to adhere them to your item.   They work very well, they allow my ink tower to slide and turn on top of my desk and that  is exactly what I was looking for.  I love it! There are so many things I can think of to use these wheel castors on in my craft room, I am so excited! If you have used them for something, leave me a comment and let me know! 💓Imginbugcrafter
