Hi, Remodelaholic peeps! It's Jessica from Mom 4 Real back with an easy DIY project for under $20! Here in our home, we have spent the summer traveling, swimming, golfing and cooking out a ton! Now that the kiddos have gone back to school, we have moved our meals from the patio back into the dining room. I just love hearing the kids tell us about there days, and getting back into a routine. What I do NOT love however is being asked to pass the ketchup or salt and pepper every 5 seconds. So, I fixed this problem by making a lazy Susan for the middle of our table. It has made our meals much more enjoyable and much less hectic! Here is what we used to make a lazy Susan…

A prefabbed round piece of pine (found at Home Depot for $7)
A rotating spice holder (Found at Target for $4 — but here's a similar one on Amazon)
Stain or Paint
First, start by painting or staining your piece of pine. I chose to stain mine since my table is already white. I used pre-loaded stain cloths which literally only took 3 minutes. I slipped on my gloves, wiped the stain on and let dry overnight.
Once the stain was dry, I used a heavy duty multi-surface glue to adhere the top of the spice holder to the bottom of the stained piece of wood. I let this dry overnight as well.
Once dried, I placed it in the middle of the table and added a cute centerpiece as well as our salt and pepper shakers for daily use.
And for regular dinners, we can place a pizza on the stone (using a trivet of course), place our ketchup and mustard there on burger night, or set out all of the toppings for taco night…the possibilities are endless! I love that with a small turn of the lazy Susan, each family member can help themselves!
