Lazy Susan

Just finished painting and decoupaging a Lazy Susan / Dumbwaiter, both rather unflattering names, especially if your name is Susan 馃檪 Anyway it was plain pinewood and sits on my kitchen island, so I decided to jazz it up a bit.

Painted it with white chalk paint and decoupaged the fishies and quotes. I bought the tissue paper from the local craft shop. On top, I applied a liquid glass epoxy coating, which can take a certain amount of heat and is impermeable to stains, etc. on the side I sanded down the small amounts of liquid glass that had spilled over and coated it with a high gloss varnish

Music Rack

So…..Still on the subject of the office/music/ironing room聽 I have a wooden magazine rack, that I麓ve had forever but never painted or used. Now I usually keep my music sheets on top of the piano in a messy pile, but since I麓m on a mission to prettify this room, I thought this magazine rack thingy would work great for my music sheets.

I decided to go mustard, so I painted the whole thing in a chalk mustard color from Rust-oleum, however, it came out looking cream-colored, very little mustard there! so I bought another container of mustard from Fleur, and this was the color I was looking for, I distressed the edges so that the bottom lighter color shows through. I bought wooden music notes, and a wooden dowel, painted and distressed them in white and granite, and glued them to the rack, a little light waxing all over and Voila, there it was all done.

No more messy pile of music sheets on top of the piano.
