I got this tired old Lazy Susan for free at a garage sale. I knew I wanted it to retain it's purpose but it definitely could look a bit sharper. I added some typography (abc's) using stain to give it a striking graphic look
Figure out how many pallets needed for the size of the project and salvage them if you can. Clean and sand them slightly, then cut off the nails keeping the nail heads showing, which
looked great! The wall this pallet were adhering to was a concrete wall, so first plywood wood was glued on and anchored to the wall.
Then stagger the planks on the floor to get an idea of how it was going to look once it was up on the wall. Then cut the end pieces with a chop saw, which is the best tool for this job. it will give nice straight cuts.
We have been working on a project for the last 13 years that involves the relocation of 64 historic buildings in the Ybor City National Historic Landmark District. Last week this one was
moved at night. Thought you might enjoy seeing some photos of it loaded and on the road. For some background on why the homes are being moved, see the entries under Tampa Interstate Study at http://preservationresource.com/projects/
I had a plain little rickety beat-up table. Now it's my cool quirky table!!! I used 4 colors of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint layered on. Lots of chipping and distressing. Take a peek http://petticoatjunktion.com/miss-mustard-se...
