Let’s get Started
This Lazy Suzan is sure to draw attention to any table it adorns. When people ask “Where did you buy that”, you can smile with confidence and tell them “Oh, that? I made it.” Let’s jump right in and start creating! This was such a fun live to do, you can catch the replay HERE.
First you are going to start with the Lazy Suzan (Get it HERE). Take a brush and some white/off white chalky style paint, (any will do) and cover your Lazy Susan. Make care to cover the base and sides thoroughly use your heat gun (get one HERE) to dry each coat of paint, as you may have to do two or more coats.
With a brush and Mode Podge cover your Lazy Susan. Once fully coated take your Prima Rice Paper (get it HERE) and line it up to where you would like it on your Lazy Susan. Placing your Prima Rice Paper sheet down push out the bubbles, making it nice and smooth. After that, take your second sheet of Prima Rice Paper and line up your patterns, again making sure to smooth out and remove any wrinkles or bubbles.
Once your paper is in place trim the excess and save that paper for another project. Secondly, take your coarse sanding block and go around the edges using the sand paper to trim away the excess paper and to give it a nice clean edge.
With some Mode Podge seal the Prima Rice Paper by adding a coat on top, making sure to get right to the edge. This step is important to prevent lifting and will ensure the lifetime of your piece. Once fully coated take your heat gun and dry all the Mode Podge.
Start by taking your heat gun and your Wood U Bend Bead Roping (get it HERE), and heating your roping up. This step is important as it will make the Wood U Bend pliable, easy to work with and helps it stick. In addition to warming up your Wood U Bend take some Elmers Wood Glue Max (get it HERE) and spread on the back of the bead roping.
Carefully follow along the edge of your Lazy Susan, making sure to firmly glue down and keep it straight. Additionally keep hitting the Wood U Bend with heat as you work to keep it pliable. Go along the entire outer edge then trim the excess. Quick Tip, use your heat gun to also dry the glue while you are applying the trim, this will help it stick a littler easier.
For our next step take your Wood U Bend Rose Garland – WUB1413 (get it HERE), heat it up and apply Elmers Wood Glue Max to the back. After adhere it to the the surface of your Lazy Susan using your heat gun to dry the glue and secure your bond. Repeat this step for the top half of your Lazy Susan.
It is time to bring the BLING! We all know how much I LOVE the sparkle! For this step I took Posh Chalk Pigment in Lemon Gold (get it HERE) mixed it with activator then painted all the Wood U Bend elements.
For this look I used the Antique Paste Pentart. Take your paste and stipple it over your Wood U bend accents and dry brush it around your Lazy Susan. You’ll then want to take a baby wipe or damp cloth and wipe away any excess.
These next steps are completely up to you and your imagination! I used this Purple Pigment (get it HERE) stippled them on the Wood U Bend, and wiped the excess away. Take your finger and add some Antique Gold Rub N’ Buff (get it HERE) to highlight, lightly wiping it across your accent areas. Up next Wax, take your clear wax and coat your brush then dip your brush into your dark wax. Tap and drag the brush over the areas you want to age.
There you have it, your very own Not so Lazy, Lazy Susan. I had so much fun creating this piece and would love to have you join me on my next live (Follow me HERE). Can’t wait to see you on our next DIY adventure!
