Lazy Susan--Redo

So this week I spent a few "moments" in a local Thrift store called Teen Challenge(**seriously Spokanites check this place out, they can super cheap on certain days.) 

So I grew up  in a house with lots of  ‘Lazy Larrys” (aka brothers) and my mom always thought that a Lazy Susan would be super cute/awesome  to have for the kitchen table.. But honestly I've always thought they were awkwardly ugly. When I found this little lady for $1.00 …a light went off in my head ((BING)).... don't be intimated by the light in my head it only turns on occasionally—diet coke and no children help that :)... And I thought why not make this thing functional and cute. (my husband would be so proud)

If you know me....which 82% viewing this blog do...  I LOVE damask print... love it. love it..  And the functional part: I had some special batting leftover that is used for making hot pads. 

I started by cutting out the fabric and batting to fit my lazy lady. 

Hot glued the batting to the top of the Lazy thing. 

And then I started using a reupholstering technique to glue the fabric on it. I used my hot glue but you could use a staple gun. 



 Looky... Looky.. 10 minutes later I have a pretty sweet little Lazy Susan!

 " Please pass the salt and pepper!? Ohh wait... never mind.. Lazy Susan got it for me!!"




  1. That's a neat idea. Why the batting? And why such a small piece of batting instead of covering the whole thing? Curious because I have an ugly but functional Lazy Susan and I think I might have to pretty it up.

  2. I love how you transformed that plain Lazy Susan into something stylish! I have made a couple of them in my free time,I will def be back to check out your blog to see what else you come up with!
