Table Turned Kitchen Must Have!

A friend gave us a homemade wooden round table. It was a great side table that you can throw a tablecloth over it and voila, instant table! Well, we took it apart and this is what we did with it.

The pieces we started with!

So here is the table top and a swivel turn table. Can you guess what we’re making?

Filling in the hole.

There was a hole in the middle of this table where the bottom was attached. So, the hole was filled with wood filler, left to dry and then sanded.

Painting and stenciling.

It was painted a cottage white color.

It was then that a friend walked into the shop and saw it. She loved the size, it’s pretty big, and she knew exactly what she wanted stenciled on the top! So the stenciling began.

Here the stencil is done. Little “bright” though don’t you think?


So it got a good sanding to give it a distressed look.

We then turned it over to attach the turn table.


The top was not very thick so I needed to find short screws so they wouldn’t go through the top.

Attaching the turn table.

If you have never done this before it can look confusing, but it’s easy. There are holes in both sections of the metal pieces. To attach the screws, you line up the holes and screw the section that is to be attached. Easy Peasy!

And it’s home!

Looks great and she is happy with it.

But wait, there’s more.

She had another turn table, but thought it looked a little small. So, she just set it on top of the new one. They have many gatherings, big and small, at the their cabin. Now she can choose which one will work best for the gathering!
