Lazy Susan with Penny Tile Stencil

 Sometimes random projects are the most fun! 

The ones with no particular direction until you're well into the project. 

Today's project was just that, a random project with a random design. 

Funny thing is that for the first time ever, my oldest daughter loved my project and wants it for her house! 

See what I mean!...

I began this project with a Lazy Susan I found at the thrift store and had painted black at one time.

I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black for the base coat. 

When I started this project I had no real direction.

I love this penny tile stencil from Old Sign Stencils and I just recently used it on a table that came out amazing

So today I wanted to use the stencil again but wasn't sure exactly what direction I was going in.

I began by stenciling the whole top of the lazy Susan with white penny tiles. 

You will notice I went right over the edge of the lazy Susan.

When the white paint dried, I used the second stencil in the set which is the design stencil, to randomly create a design on the top.

I used different colors of craft paint to fill in the white "tiles". 

I made a few flowers, a few lines, and a few zig zags. 

Then I went around the tray filling in random circles with different colors.

If you look closely you'll even find one penny tile in gold!

When I was finished painting this very random design I painted the edge of the lazy Susan with more black paint.

I then sprayed the lazy Susan with a glossy spray sealer.

When the sealer dried I used my very favorite gel stain to "antique" the design

I then gave the lazy Susan another coat of spray sealer.

When the lazy Susan was finished I was pretty happy with the artful looking finished product but not as happy as my daughter Kasey who fell in love with it.

The Mid-Century Modern look of it was right up her artsy alley!
