Susan I am but "lazy" is not a word in my vocabulary...

I love to keep busy and I love to create...

Today I'm using a large wooden plate very much like this one I found at the thrift store...

I gave the plate a coat of Graphite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, then a coat of Pure White over the top when the Graphite dried. 


I used 220 grit sand paper to lightly sand off some of the white so the Graphite showed through. 

Using one of my favorite Vintage Sign Stencils from Knick of Time
I used the Graphite once again to stencil the image onto the plate. 

When the stencil was dry I sealed the paint.

Lazy Susan hardware is added to the bottom of the plate (I'm sure there is a technical name for this piece) ...

    1. I'm pretty sure you can Angie but you know me... that piece came from something else I had. I'm always removing the pieces and using them over :)
