    I made a lazy susan out of an extra one I had. I glued a round piece of wood on the bottom. I didn't want it to move so did not add a swivel to the glass.

    Use it on the table as a Cooking Dish Tray/Coaster- Make a flower arrangement on it for the table - Drinks Tray - Cosmetics Tray - Small Table top for the garden + other things if you decorate it.........

    Hello Zozo; I made one into a Jewelry plate. It really ruined out beautiful!!

    You can recover it, paint it or embellish it.

    I painted mine by using Folk Art Enamels Paints.

    I hope that this helps you!!! Take Care!

    oh do I have ideas for you,,,i picture can be glued to the back side and used as a coaster table in an end table or you can use it as a glass and place some small votives on it and use it as a table centerpiece or you can place it outside on a patio table with bird seed...endless possiblities

  • I would use it to make a cake/dessert pedestal. find a nice sturdy base (like a clay pot or a glass bowl) and use E6000 to attach them together. Put a doily or cloth on the glass plate if it looks too plain.

    I use my old microwave plate as a cutting plate. I can wash it and sanitizer it between uses for cutting meats and veggies.

    It can be used as a very large trivet to place hot pots. Also as a serving plate for Bar-b-que meats.

    The glass works great as a trivet for hot pots placed n a counter or table to keep the pot from damaging either surface.

    Hello Zos: They make excellent trays for larger plant pots. You can get some adhesive felt squares to stick to the bottoms. That will let the air circulate underneath so that your table, or whatever, doesn't get stained.

    They make a great cake plate, especially if you decorate them. You can use the ring that was underneath and then it will turn. I would sit on a shallow cake pan or pie tin. If you didn't save the ring, you could put marbles in the cake pan or pie tin.

  • Use it as a serving piece.

    Place it on top of a plastic lazy susan and use either in the bathroom or kitchen to have small items often used right at your fingertips.
