Lazy Susans are just so handy. When I find them at thrift shops, I snag them up. They are great for organizing in cabinets, nice for serving pieces on the table or counter, a quick spin for decorating cakes, and even used as a pedestal for serving food.
So when I saw this HUGE one at the thrift shop, I grabbed it for the size. But made of general manufactured product and not wood, the only way to make it better is to cover it.
I chose to decoupage it with these dollar store napkins from a leftover project. Right now, flowers and the Eiffel Tower cheers me up. The snow is still very deep and the temps are continued freezing.
AND, I saw this beautiful old French clock face on Pinterest and wanted to use it. So I sized it to one full sheet of paper, printed it and cut it out to add to the center. .
It took one and a half napkins to cover this lazy susan. I cut the paper to over hang and go over the sides.
I brushed on glue to the entire surface and over the sides and under. Then carefully laid the napkins on, smoothing over to rid of wrinkles or bubbles.
Once I had the napkins and the clock face glued on, I used Mod Podge to decoupage over the entire surface and the underside.
It still bubbled a little and it didn't take too long to dry. (A couple of hours)
Most of the wrinkles and bubbles were gone when it dried. Then to protect it and make it easy to clean from spills, I sealed it with coat of polyurethane.
Then another coat after the first dried overnight.
This lazy susan is great for the counter top or table. It's huge! And instead of being plain and ugly, it matches up with the kitchen.
The cheery print certainly gives us a little spring feeling in the kitchen during this snowy and cold ... never getting here Spring this year!
What are you doing to get Spring Fever? Personally, I want to be outdoors looking for crocuses! I don't think that will be happening here for a long time.
