Commercial Lazy Susans are expensive, but you can easily make one yourself for half the cost!
Easy DIY Lazy Susans for Less
Adding Lazy Susans to your pantry instantly adds storage and utilizes awkward spaces more effectively.
Commercial Lazy Susans run anywhere from $25 and up. I made these for half the cost and only a couple of hours.
In your local big box hardware store, they sell Lazy Susan kits. The one we purchased was a little over $5. However, it didn't come with screws, so have someone help you to match the holes with the appropriate sized screw. We purchased 3 rounds of wood found in the trim section of the hardware store for less than $10 each and cut scraps of MDF to fit the Lazy Susan kit. First, measure and mark where you want to attach it to the wood round. We predrilled holes into both MDF pieces and the round.
Next, screw one side of the lazy susan to the MDF you've cut.
Align it with the predrilled holes on the Wood Round and drill the base to the round. Notice how you have to angle the it to be able to affix it.
That's it! Super Easy!
Pretty up your pantry with jars and baskets.
