lazy susan update

we have a funny situation with our dining table: because its so wide, its really hard to reach anything in the middle.  i like to keep napkins out with salt & pepper, but to get to them the kids have to climb onto the table.  not my favorite.

i picked up this large lazy susan at the thrift store almost a year ago, waiting for the prefect… something… to put on top of it.  turns out i had that perfect something hanging from my wall already!




i picked up this metal tray at a flea market last year.  i think it was actually a table top for a small table.  it fit perfectly on top of the lazy susan!


my best friend gave me this old tool caddy for my birthday because she knew i’d love it and find some quirky use for it.  it currently holds our napkins and s&p shakers.


our table’s finish is starting to wear off so we use coasters every once in awhile at the table, so on went the coasters.  another friend made those for me years ago. i know, i have great friends!


and then i finished with a hydrangea from the garden popped in a mason jar!


now we can all actually reach the items in the middle of the table!
