Lazy Susan

I can't believe how fast the weeks are going now that school is so close. I know some of you have already started, but we don't start until after Labor Day. It is only two weeks away! Although it will probably take that long to get them going to bed earlier so they can get up earlier.  That always seems like a difficult process.

I have had fun getting ready for our end of the summer BBQ coming up. On our trip to Michigan in May we went to Ikea and I picked up a lazy susan and some metal buckets. I was going to use it for craft supplies but I don't have a place to leave those out all the time and the lazy susan is pretty large to just leave on the kitchen table all the time. I decided to add some paint (of course) and use it for entertaining instead.


Here are my supplies:



I used Valspar spray paint in Indigo cloth satin. I just love that color. I also thought I would use magnets to hold the buckets in place but they seem to stay just find so I didn't add them.

I just LOVE how it turned out! It was such an easy project and will be a great addition to our backyard BBQ and will be great use for other entertaining as well.




I love the blue with the metal buckets.




I hope you are enjoying the rest of your summer. Are you working on any projects? I don't know if I will get more or less done when the kids go back to school. Our schedule will sure change.
Have a great day!



That’s What Che Said…
