Lazy Susan + Mugholder = Jewelry Holder

While browsing around Good Will the other day I came across a lazy susan and two mug holders. I stared at them for a while trying to come up with something to do with them - then the light bulb came on! I have an over abundance of jewelry and I hate digging through my jewelry armoire to find the pieces that I wear most often! SO - I decided to make a spinning jewelry holder for my dresser.

Here is a sneak peek of it in action:


Here are the pieces I started off with:

mug holder thingy ( I actually used 2 - one tall and one short $1.00 for tall and $.50 for short)


and this lovely $1.00 Lazy Susan:


All I did was spray paint each piece white and glued the holders down on the Lazy Susan. It would be hard to find an easier project!

Here is one more shot of the finished piece:


I already had the paint and glue so I got a really cool jewelry holder for only $2.50!

Someone asked me why I painted it all white - I did that so the jewelry would stand out more and take center stage!!
