Divided Wood and Metal Lazy Susan

make your own Pottery Barn inspired metal and wood Lazy Susan

Jaime from That’s My Letter is back again with another catalog-inspired project that is sure to knock you socks off! Jaime turned a large cake pan into a divided lazy Susan that offers the “perfect mix of warm wood and shiny metal.” The generous size of the pan allows plenty of room for utensils, napkins, and anything else you might need for an outdoor BBQ. Between her mini croquet mallet food labels and this lazy Susan, I’d say Jaime is all set for some summer entertaining!

Bonnie from Uncommon Designs decided to step out of the box and try her hand at something new… painting.  Amazingly, Bonnie painted these coasters while she was cooking dinner. Bonnie says she doesn’t have a gift for drawing and actually surprised herself with how the coasters came out. The vibrant colors and patterns are so pretty!

Kim from Made in a Day scored quite the deal when she got an old stool for only $1.99. It might not have been much to look at, but Kim took care of that! She recovered the seat with a kitchen rug from Wal-mart to mimic the look of hand-woven, recycled fabric stools she had seen at both Pier 1 and Target. I love it when a rescue and knock-off come together!

Summer is just around the corner, which means it’s time for backyard BBQs, bonfires, and pool parties. Jaime from That’s My Letter shares an idea for creating the perfect party table with her mini croquet mallet food labels. I mean how cute are these? Aside from just looking adorable, these food labels clearly mark all the grub so guests know what’s being served. They’re also versatile enough to be used as place cards or garden markers if you remove the base.

DeDe created her blooms from tissue paper and then hot glued them onto branches. It is amazing how real they look!
