~diy lazy susan centerpiece~

Ever since we got our round dining table, I have wanted a lazy susan for the center. 
But I have never been able to find one that was just right.
So, when I stumbled across one in a thrift store, I decided to buy it and paint it out to match my own decor.

It started out really plain and boring, but was only $2.99 and it was the right size.

Here was what I used to make it over.
I had the stencil but you can find similar ones here.

After you paint your base coat, let it dry, then stencil on in a contrasting color.
Once that is dry it will look very "new" and it will need to be distressed.

I used an electric sander but you can also do it by hand.
There's no rhyme or reason to this, just sand away.

 Seal it with a wax or varathane and it's done!

As you can see, I used it to hold extra silverware in a vintage jar, and it also houses extra plates, napkins, and a my favorite candle.

It's so fun to spin it around when someone needs something within reach.
Don't you just love simple stylish solutions?
