How to Make Homemade Furniture Sliders

Moving furniture, especially large pieces, is often the biggest hassle of household projects. Furniture sliders are an effective way to slide heavy objects around your home with minimal effort. Sliders fit under the legs or corners of heavy furniture and can be pushed over hardwood, carpet and laminate flooring. They are decidedly low-tech, but furniture sliders can prevent back injuries and other bodily harm caused by heavy lifting. While sliders can be purchased at home improvement stores, it's easy to make your own.
