My First IKEA Hack.

June 13, 2010

I have officially joined the ranks of IKEA hackers.  

I started with the SNUDDA lazy Susan for $8.   Why is it called the SNUDDA and not the “Lata Signe?”


Anyway,   I tossed on a primer when I was doing the guest room dresser.  Which, yes, I know…I need to post the finished product.  

Then, I spray painted a little ivory paint, traced a 4 (my favorite number as well as the number of members in the SNM household), and painted it with some acrylic paint.

After that, I aged it with some glaze and then sanded with the power sander. (I am addicted to this tool.  I wish it had to power to erase freckles and age spots, but it just gave me a really bad road rash).



Here is sits.  Ready to have a Star Wars action figure go spinning and pull about 3Gs.  (I know this since I tested it on my sister’s Dolly Parton Barbie back in the day). 

I’d love to say that this baby is going to make access to the salt and pepper easier.  But, I know it will just end up being the source for some childhood naughtiness and thus a lot of yelling.

PS:  Yes, I know the last picture is out of focus.  Sorry.  It’s late and SNM is beat.

    That is such a simple, yet brilliant idea! I have one of those lazy susans, too, but it looks funny on my (also wood) dining room table. I may have to add another project to my never ending list!
