Organizing Your Garage: Wheels and Casters are a Must Have!

Pin It

The keys to an organized garage are...


What is the difference between a wheel and a caster?

Ron, my intelligent hubster, enlightened me on this topic about five minutes ago.

The answer: A wheel has a stationary axle (moves forward and backward only) and a caster swivels (can turn in all directions). Smarty pants Ron! That's one of the many reasons I love him!

Lots and lots of wheels and casters in the garage make organizing a breeze!

Wheeled carts, bins, and other contraptions make it easy to store project pieces, items to sell, etc.

Vintage floral carts with casters make great junk-inspired mobile workspaces.

Industrial carts with ladders are great for storing DIY materials AND for reaching items on high shelves.

Does anyone else get excited about casters and wheels?

Especially when they are on vintage industrial pieces?

Maybe it's just me, but I doubt it! :)


  1. Yes I do get excited about vintage wheels and casters ! It is all the industrial look that I love!!

  2. LOVE'em. I wish I could find some good vintage ones that didn't cost an arm and a leg!

  3. It's not just you; me too! Everything looks better on a great set of vintage wheels or castors.

  4. I love the old carts with casters and wheels that are popping up lately! I especially like it when they are made into things like sofas - so kewl! I think the best way for me to organize would be to load everything onto carts and just send it all down the street! LOL! Hugs, Leena

  5. If I could find wheels and castor as fabulous asbyours, I might have to move into my garage & stay there!! Loooove....and now inspired for a long over-do clean-up...thank you!!

  6. I just bought my mother a vintage shopping cart with wheels. Shhh, it's part of her birthday present and she is going to love it! And my antique dining table with wheels, oops, casters works like a charm!

  7. I too love castors and wheels!! And vintage industrial makes my breathe stop!! Ahhhh!!

  8. Everything LOOKS better with wheels/castors!! I'm digging the industrial look, big time!

    Have fun,

  9. OK, now I'm drooling over your garage storage!!! And I kinda want some of that stuff IN my house :) Tell Ron thanks for the info. Hope all is well, Laurel
