Lazy Susan re-do

We use this Lazy Susan for our Scrabble games...I like it so much better now!


First step: painted with ASCP Old White

Second step: Used part of this image from the ever-so-generous Karen over at the Graphics Fairy:

Even though the talent to create music passed me by (lol), I like the image anyway. Two of my sisters are musicians, and my last name is "March,"so this image just seemed to "fit" for me. The image transferred easily by covering the back of the image with scribbled pencil, positioning it on the wood, and tracing the letters with pencil, then painting with black acrylic paint:

Here it is, ready for the next step. I used one of my very favourite Dreamweaver Stencils (LJ896), and simply pounced some brown acrylic paint through the stencil:


Here's the end result, with a layer of Benjamin Moore Aqua Glaze mixed with a few drops of the same brown acrylic paint, and nicely scratched up.



THANK YOU so VERY much for stopping by!! I'll come by your place too.

Partying with these fine bloggers this week, and THANKING THEM for all their work in hosting these parties!

HEY...one more thing...a great big hearty eastern Canadian THANK YOU to Ms Ashlee for featuring this over at
