Upcycle a dated lazy Susan for your craft room

I have recently created my very own craft room, and in an effort to be organized, have scoured thrift stores, dollar stores, and garage sales for items I can upcycle or repurpose for craft room storage and organization. Here’s an old lazy Susan I bought at Good Will for $.99 that I repainted and now use on my desk to hold tools and adhesives!

Here’s the final product — simply cleaned, spray painted (several light coats), and a little washi tape I had on hand. How cute is this?

I remember these from the 80s I believe 🙂 Obviously this apple pattern doesn’t match my white & green craft room very well.

Make sure you spray paint outdoors, in a well-ventilated space. Watch for overspray (I moved my toes before I painted lol). As many times as I have spray painted projects, I’m still aware that spray paint can travel a long distance. I use a flattened shipping box underneath to absorb most of the spray paint.

The final product one more time! Simple $.99 lazy Susan makeover with paint and washi tape I already had. Happy Crafting!
