Lazy Susan, and you shall have some pie...


mmmmm.... pie
Last week I went thrifting and occasional saling with the one friend who knows about this blog (Hi Dii).  I didn't get much at the occasional sales, if anything, but I did get a few things at our first stop, the thrift store.

I wasn't looking for mittens, kittens, or lazy Susans.


Don't be jealous of this big beauty, but do be envious of her girth.  Ms. Susan is a heavy 20" across.  She gets that from eating pie. 

You can laze a lot of goods on her top, 20" is a generous width.


Since I am still avoiding my dining room redo, I worked on this project by the dark of night.  I think I'm an owl, meow-l meow-l meow-l.  (Get it...the 3 Little kittens?)

I wanted a barrel-top-look so when Brawn seemed comfortable with no intention of moving, I asked if he would router some grooves in the top.  I wasn't fussy about how wide or how far apart, just do it NOW.  Please and thank you.


And while you're out in the pigstye garage, find a couple old handles, I don't care what they look like either.*

*I really did care and these were not what I envisioned but didn't think I should be too picky as I was being pretty bossy and he was clearly engrossed in Duck Dynasty.


I summoned the troops..... CeCe Caldwell, Annie Sloan and La Craie.  The ladies stepped forward and for this project two sample pots were used as well as some pure white from Annie.  Letters courtesy of my Cameo Silhouette.


The inspiration for the wording shall not be revealed. The reason for that is I preferred the original source and I don't want you to say to yourself, "self..... Bliss's rendition looks nothing like that".  But if you want to stop over at MissFlibbertigibbet's and poke around, look for a really cool pie sign.


I had to go back and add all the white on the letters because I wasn't liking them without.  I'll remember that next time.  

When I was all done, this sad little kitten-owl had no pie.  

Microwave Brownie In a Cup from No. 2 Pencil.

But do not fear, I just clicked to the Bliss Ranch Pinterest boards for a quick dessert for one.

  1. I think I remember that sign from a Decor Steals deal a ways back...but I won't tell anyone ;-) The lazy susan looks great, and I'm glad you got SOME dessert out of the deal!

  10. That is one heck of a transformation. Only you would have taken a boring lazy susan and turned her into a stunning susan :).

    ReplyDelete
  11. I don't know what is more impressive - your imagination with this project or the fact you were able to tear Brawn away from Duck Dynasty. In our house, if Dynasty is on, a certain male figure who shall remain nameless blanks out everything. Even screaming children and real, meowing kittens...It used to drive me insane but then I became impressed with his ability to totally focus on something. Wish I could do that...

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow what a great makeover! 1000 time better than before. Love the new patina and everything else about it!

  13. My husband's nickname is "Pieface" and today is "Pi" day...3/14. So this post is like Mary Poppins...practically perfect in every way!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I saw the original sign at Antique Farmhouse and LOVE yours! What a genius you are for having Mr. Brawn router the edges in it - I shall call you Ms. Blissful Brain! Seriously...I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Love your routerered Suzie and for 23 cents, sign me up for five! Great upcycle Bliss and fabulous lines Brawn! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ooo, fancy. And now I want pie to. I've wanted pie all day today beings it is Pi day.

    ReplyDelete
  17. No way!! I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this! That transformation just blew me away.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That is absolutely fabulous - HAVE TO MAKE ONE NOW -
    Hate that they're called Lazy Susan's - who invented that name for it anyway?
    Going to call mine the Lazy Bliss..............

    ReplyDelete
  19. WOW! In the biggest way! Stop, stop, stop! I want to make things just that fast...Yes, it would help if I had a Brawn to do my bidding. Maybe that's my problem. That dessert ain't too bad either!

  20. Really nice Bliss! While I'm not fond of the name "Lazy Susan"...... I really like your very creative turn table :) lol
    Love it! You always make awesome creations!

  21. love the lazy susan Bliss! I just found one of these in my stash last week. It's not near this large.... and I don't have a trim router... looks like I'll be doing something else with mine.
    You're lucky to have someone to trek to the garage for you!

  22. Oh my word.

  23. I love it. The routered grooves alone was a cool tansformation. Wasn't expecting the sign. Very cool.

    ReplyDelete
  24. My group stared referring to them as lazy Fred's ~ just to be equal opportunity about it ;)
    Either way, it's a lovely one for pies to take a spin on!

    Thank you for partying with the Wildly Original Crowd.

  25. Looks great! I like the routered top!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love u're lazy and loled...a little cause I have heard you say lazy on yourself...cleaning spam out of my blog...and checking on my blogging BFF and this caught my attention and yes what is it about Duck Dynasty...my hubby too I don't get it...but love what he did and thinking when all the kids and grands are around how fun this will be...take care

    ReplyDelete
  27. Seriously, you have the only hubby that would miss a whole episode of Duck Dynasty to do your dirty work!! Quack, quack.

    The routering is a brilliant idea and makes Miss Lazy look like a vintage find! Our granddaughter was using my IKEA lazy susan as a sit-n-spin. At least it was used for something! Now if I could just get my not-so-handyman interested in woodworking.......

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm indeed very jealous. Not only of your Susan, but also of your "on demand" skills you have with Brawn.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That is truly fabulous!! The routing and paint job really make is sparkle!! (and those handles!) Now where are you using this beauty??? I'm sure that was sugar free brownie in a mug, right??? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Brawn is a KEEPER! Your redo was fab and I loved that you used the Silhouette. I LOVEEEEE mine :)
    Hugs and keep the shovel handy :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. LOVE it!! You two make such a good team :) Did you make him a cup of cake too? Pinning of course...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Her girth is amazing and that new paint color really slims her! Now if she could just pass by that brownie in a cup!

  33. You are the junking queen! I can't believe how fantastic that looks from where it started. It's so cute! I knew exactly what sign gave you the inspiration as soon as I saw it. Love your version. Btw, we are huge Duck Dynasty fans too. That show has surprised me how funny it is. I didn't think much of it at first, but now my whole family is hooked! We don't miss a show.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Pretty, pretty, pretty! I don't care if it's not what you envisioned... It is AWESOME!!! How you can take something and turn it in to something else that looks nothing like the previous something BLOWS. ME. AWAY. Now... I'm coming to steal it. Who cares that I don't cook... Who wants a pie to cover up that perfection anyway? (Poor Brawn... How did you dare interrupt his time with Willie and Si. You're so mean. LOL!)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ah-Maze-Ing!!! I would have never thought to route out the ridges. I must confess that now I'm coveting a router. I MUST HAVE ONE. Beautiful job my new friend : )
    Have a wonderful weekend ~

  36. This is fantastic!!!! I LOVE, LOVE IT!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. That is so cute! I would love that in the center of my breakfast table for salt and pepper, napkins & flowers. Pinned!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love that you have one in-real-life friend who knows baout your secret blogging life:)

    Now I have the "any you shall have no pie" song stuck in my head!

    ReplyDelete
  39. That came out GREAT! Your little alteration of my sign worked perfectly!! Love it! And, yours was SO much cheaper too!

    ReplyDelete
  40. That is so cool, I love the addition of the handles! When I went thrifting this week, I only found a "plastic" lazy susan...I left it there! Maybe I need to make that a rule here, I don't get desert or snack until I do something creative... I think I might get more done!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have the exact same lazy susan, but it has sat all lonely like in the closet of doom due to lack of inspiration on my part. This turned out beautiful; the grooves really put it over the top & kinda got me swooning. I have to pin this for when I drag my poor girl out of her closet imprisonment. Thanks for the inspiration:)

    ReplyDelete
  42. You've done it again, Bliss. I love it. Madly.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love it! Fantastic job, Bliss!

  44. What a great project. I love the handles, but especially love the wording. LOL on the "ladies" stepping forward! You did a sweet job, and that's no humble pie!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Insanely gorgeous. And no invisible hands or anything. I need a router.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow, this is a great transformation, Bliss...you have wonderfully creative talent!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Well that is one fine lazy susan! Genius on routing the top. Now i want pie. Now...for breakfast. Guess your St. Pat's post will be up tomorrow huh?

    ReplyDelete
  48. I see I am not the only one who thinkings this is fan-flipping-tastic. I love the routing (yeah, keep him around).
    "when Brawn seemed comfortable with no intention of moving". HA. That's when I like to ask my Hubs to hang something heavy on a random wall.
    Love this. Pinning and all that jazz.
    Have a great weekend! Claire

    ReplyDelete
  49. Look at you kicking butt and taking names...THis thing is the BOMB! I saw it and knew I had to pin it...and realized I already had...Figures it was yours.LOL!!

  50. Love!!! you can fit a whole pie on it and take it to watch t.v.!!! I'm making handpies today. So excited!

    ReplyDelete
  51. You always crack me up, and I am always amazed at your cleverness!! Just perfect, and I don't care what the other pie sign looks like, I love yours. But I love MissFlibbertigibbet, so hers is probably awesome too.

  88. Yes indeed I am jealous of her girth. 20 inch lazy susans are enviable! Of course it does look better now! Those handles are just dandy and I agree you were being just a little bossy...

  89. Terrific!!! I'm pinning it.
