You know those felt glides on the bottom of your chair and table legs that always fall off? Here’s the permanent fix for that problem.
You’ll need a hot glue gun, a natural wine cork and a sharp knife. I like to use a serrated bread knife, but any sharp kitchen knife will do.
Start by slicing your wine cork into discs about 5-6mm (1/4″) thick.
- First scrape off all the old adhesive from the felt glides you’ve removed and cover the bottom of your chair or table leg with a blob of hot glue. It’s important to apply the hot glue to a clean surface.
- Then press one of the cork discs you cut earlier into the blob of hot glue and let it cool and set.
- Repeat this process for all the legs on your table or chair and stand it upright.
That’s it. This great little life hack is a permanent solution to those self-adhesive felt glides that always fall off.
