DIY Lazy Susan By Caroline Bell Creative

True to their name, lazy Susans are shockingly easy to DIY.  So if you’re having a lazy artist day, check out what Caroline Bell did with our wooden circles and lazy Susan hardware. This  project is not just pretty; it’s super useful!


(Really, though, there’s no such thing as a lazy artist. It’s only creative overload that slows us down sometimes ;))

Supplies & Tools:

Enjoy this video below showcasing how to create this project


Step 1:

Connect the Lazy Susan Hardware to the Wooden Cutout. Caroline used a Ryobi drill to attach the screws in the hardware’s 4 inner holes-see the graphic for reference.

Step 2:

Turn the wooden cutout over so that the hardware is on the bottom side. Paint the top of the wooden cutout. Caroline used Krylon spray paint, but any acrylic paint you have on hand would work as well. Caroline used 3 coats of Krylon Gloss Coral Isle and allowed 1-2 hours of drying time in between each coat. Once the top is dry, spin the Lazy Susan to apply spray paint to the sides of the circle.

Step 3:

If a design is desired, utilize a stencil for easy application. Once the wooden cutout is completely dry, use painter’s tape to secure a stencil mold to the surface of the Lazy Susan. Apply 2 coats of spray paint and allow a minimum of 1 hour of drying time in between coats. Let the paint dry overnight. 

Step 4:

Carefully remove the stencil and painter’s tape. Enjoy your Lazy Susan!
