This simple DIY Lazy Susan was completed in less than 15 minutes and looks like a million bucks!

Did I mention it uses no paint?

Easy DIY Lazy Susan design with stains and spinning component from Amazon. Color blocking was done with American honey stain, Colonial black stain, and Picklin' white stain. This is an original design by whimsical artist Tracey's Fancy. Design is food safe because of hemp oil used for sealant.

Step 1: Gather your materials

I purchased (ok….I sent Matt to purchase) this wooden disc at our local hardware store (thank you, Home Depot). I gathered my VERY FEW supplies needed (listed for you below) and got started!

Step 2: Decide on your design

Using a ruler and pencil, I drew out my design.  I then taped off the first section of my design (the mountains) using painter’s tape.

Step 3: Get to Stainin’!

I applied my Dixie Belle stain (that’s right – no paint!) in American Honey to that section using a cut-up piece of cloth.

Make sure to wear gloves to prevent the stain from discoloring your hands.  Rub off any excess stain and then remove the tape.

Step 4: Rinse and Repeat

I was able to immediately tape over that stained area so I could stain the next section of the design.  I was originally worried that my tape would pull back the stain but was happy to discover it does not! 

Again….stain….wipe off excess….remove tape….and move to the next section. 

I divided the sky into night and day using Colonial Black and Picklin’ White.  I then framed out the outer edge of the disc using the Colonial Black.  

Step 5: Seal

To seal and protect this Lazy Susan, I chose Dixie Belle’s Hemp Oil, since we want this to be food-safe (just in case someone would like to use this to serve food).

 Hemp Oil absorbs into the wood, dries with a matte finish, and is water-resistant when fully cured (30 days).

Step 6: Make it lazy

Now to make this Lazy Susan spin!

I ordered the spinning component from Amazon and had Matt attach it to the disc!

And that is it!!!  

Such a simple project with a big WOW attached to it!
