Serving tray (must have wood bottom around 

¼- to ½-inch thick)

Four 2-inch wheel casters (preferably the 

“no mark” kind for wood floors)

Eight ½-inch screws


Tape measure



• Style it with an umbrella holder next to it, or put a plant next to it or on top of it.

• Tray could also be used for a printer caddy, or to throw a tall laundry basket on top for easy maneuvering around the house.


1.Flip over your tray and measure out for the casters to be evenly spaced on the tray bottom. Use a pen to mark your drill holes.

2. Drill screws into tray bottom, one caster at a time.  Flip the tray back over and your boot tray is ready to go. Place near entry or back door and enjoy!
