Moving Men


My dear friend, Sharlene, has a breathtaking home that has had designer showhouse organizations and magazines knocking at her door. Needless to say, the place didnít get to be what it is overnight. There has been lots of blood, sweat, and tearsÖ Mine! Though I certainly canít take credit for most of it, I did contribute in some small way with countless nights of moving furniture and artwork around to test every possible configuration until it was Ďjust right!í

I recently came across the Moving Men furniture sliders online and remembered using them at Sharís house to reposition many a sofa and I have to say they were truly amazing. Perfect for legs that would otherwise scratch your floor if dragged across it, these little discs are foam lined to protect your furniture. In addition, they have a smooth plastic shell that wonít mar your floors and lets you easily slide heavy objects over floors, making Ďbulkí moving a breeze. Works great with carpeting, as well as wood and other hard flooring. Very useful if you are trying to work alone, too!

Iím not usually big on touting items that have the ĎAs Seen On TVí endorsement on the package (except, of course, if itís for kitsch value), but these really do work great. The set included four regular and four mini sliders.

There are very few purchases that I've been excited enough about to call one of the 'best purchases ever,' but these fit the mold.

I picked a set up at a garage sale a couple of years ago for $1.00. Best buck I ever spent.

They actually make a special one for wood floors with a cloth bottom instead of the hard plastic.
