Last week I showed you that old mouse pads needn't be tossed in the trash or Goodwill pile — they can be re-born as coasters. On that same token, the soft squishy fabric is great for a number of uses around the house.

If you've got a table or chair that's semi-wobbly, cut a small piece of an old mouse pad to fit under the wobbly leg.

On chairs, you'll want to affix the padding with some glue, so you can move them without losing the pads, but for a table, you probably don't even need any adhesive at all.

Stable sailing!
