My Lazy Susan-step-by-step

I finished this Lazy Susan about 3 am this morning. Z-z-z-z-zz-zzzzz...I am half asleep! I took some photos of the process. Thought y'all might like to see.
This is the unpainted piece. It's a very heavy, well made, composite wood. A flea market treasure!

Here's the bottom of it. No markings on it except for that # 6 or 9??

I basecoated it in black. I always do at least 2-3 coats.


After adding the main designs, I used a candle to wax the spots where I want the paint to look chippy.

Adding more details after baseing in the designs.


A closeup of the crow pull toy.


Another closeup of the pumpkin pull toy! I love these Terrye French designs!!



Here's the finished lazy susan! This will be so cute as a table centerpiece with a bowl of candy in it, a floral arrangement, or maybe a bowl of sweet smelling prim fixens!

Hope you enjoyed seeing the run-through! This item is for sale on Etsy. It's OOAK!
