Use as a laundry cart
If your home has a laundry chute, keep a basket atop a skateboard directly below the chute. When you’re ready to do the laundry, simply roll the load over to the washer.

Make a shelf
Is your kid an avid skateboarder? When he or she is ready for a new skateboard, turn the old one into a shelf for his or her room. Support it on a couple of metal shelf brackets. You can remove the wheels or leave them on.

Use as a painter’s scooter
