I'm so excited to share my new creations!
Please bear with me as I try to work on my photo editing techniques
I started out with two double decker lazy susans that I picked up at the thrift store eons ago for .50 each. Today they finally found a purpose.
I'm always getting up and down out of my chair to get craft and sewing supplies. Oh bother! I started thinking about how great it would be to have a double decker lazy susan for my craft supplies. Now these just wouldn't do. This dingy yellow is NOT inspiring. Yucky!
I went shopping around my house and found the perfect supplies to make new lazy susans.
For the first one, I used a candle stick and two platters.
I took the lazy susan apart and just used the bottom twirly section. I gave the sides a nice coat of heirloom white. There was no need to paint the top or bottom since it wouldn't be exposed.
Then I used this stuff to glue it all together. I wanted it to be permanent and knew that E-6000 would do the job. No craft supplies crashin over on me.
I put a generous line of it on all the parts that would be touching and started piecing it together.
Here's the first one completed.
I haven't decided what's going to go where yet, but I know all the glasses will fill up quickly.
I knew I would use the second lazy susan for my sewing supplies so I wanted to incorporate some sewing elements. How about some antique spools of thread?? My mom mailed me oooodles of these... how perfect for this project!! Moms ROCK!!! I peeled off the paper on the ends, sanded them and then glued them together using E-6000.
Don't cha wish they still cost this much???
Here's the second one completed.The glue is so tough that I can pick the whole thing up by the pillar of thread on top.
Here's a better look.
I LOVE all of the pretty colors!!! And better yet, the spools of thread belonged to my mom and grandma AND... it spins!!! How fun is that??
