Napa Style Inspired Lazy Susan ~

I saw this great lazy susan in my latest Napa Style catalog - 

I love this! I just love the rustic feel and the functionality. But the price tag is a bit high at $249.00. Now have I mentioned how much I enjoy Micheal Chiarello? Maybe for a later post...

So I have a bunch of spindles (thanks Gayle) and I was going to cut one down, sand it and get it prepped, until I laid eyes on a candlestick ($1.99) that I picked up at Goodwill awhile back. I also recently picked up  a lazy susan for $4.99 and a wood plate for $1.99. 

I assembled them, 

and played around a little bit, 


and finally decided it will be a piece for my "new" craft room.

I like the Napa Style version for $249.00, but I LOVE my version for $9 bucks!

I love your version for $9.00 too! This is a wonderful repurposing of three items into one perfect lazy susan.

Great post! Wow! $9 spent on things you repurposed vs $249 on something that could possibly have been made in China. And in the process you saved at least 3 things from a a potential landfill. That's what I call an economic stimulus package. Outstanding!
We need more americans to think that way. Keep up the good work!

Yours is fabulous! Are you serious about the $249??? How could that be? Is it made of gold? Love your eye for putting things together.

Vanessa said...

Great job, you've inspired me! I think I'll keep my eye out for component that could make one of those. I'd love to pile it high with cheses and fruit. Of course a glass of red wine goes without saying!
Love

Love it. I just bought a nice wooden lazy susan at the Goodwill for $2.00 and thought I would make an art caddy for my daughter, but I might like this better.
Great job!

Wendy said...

We love Napa Style, too! You did an awesome job! I like the color of your candlestick against the wood! Thanks for sharing :)

How does a company justify a price that high to begin with.
Good for people like you who take the idea and show how simple it it to do it yourself.

You are so clever, Chelsea! I love this! I like all the ways you played with it, but I think it's a perfect piece for a craft room.

i LOVE! getting my Napa Style.....

So stinkin' cute!! My mom and her friend saw a lazy susan at a winery that was made out of wine barrel slats, complete with red wine stains and the stamp of the winery on it, for sale with a hefty price tag as well. My mom's friend came home and made us each one out of a salvaged wine barrel, complete with red wine stains and winery stamp on it, for pennies on the dollar, just like you did. It is a fab piece in my kitchen. I keep it next to my stove with my cooking oils and such on it.

Millie said...
