i was out thrifting with my mom last week and came across a lazy susan begging to be made pretty! since i’ve been on my yellow kick lately–i thought that was a good place to start.

here’s the ‘before’. blah, boring, heavy 70’s dark wood.

i thought this was going to be a piece of cake project, but nope. it took about 5 coats of paint to cover the dark wood. then halfway through i started to question my choice of yellow. i was seriously tempted to throw the whole thing in the trash and call it a day. but i plugged along.

now it’s sitting on my kitchen island with sweet daisies, fresh fruit and napkins. adding some happiness. you can see our kitchen chairs are lime green and my aqua, reupholstered chair in the background.

can you tell i’m ready for spring? how about you?
