The Lazy Susan is an awesome way to keep various kitchen tools and items stored in an efficient way, however we have all encountered lazy susans that just don’t seem to work right because there is no system in place. Thankfully, with a little bit of time and some ingenuity, you can make your lazy susan remarkably efficient.
Found on Hometalk, this system of creating an efficient lazy susan is easy, cheap, and will transform your kitchen.
As you can see from the video below – no more lazy susan chaos – instead you can open the door and find everything you need easily!
1. Get Wedge Bins
These clear wedge bins are easy to find at Wal-Mart or any other store like it and are perfect for your lazy susan. They fit very well and can hold a multitude of things. If you have smaller items, that they’re clear helps you find what you’re looking for.
2. Assess Your Needs
What do you have in your lazy susan that needs to be organized? The reality is you need to check out what you need to organize first and the different ways items can fit together. This will ensure your project is a success.
3. Stencil Out Sections
Painter’s tape is great to use for this because it’s easy to mark and stays in place really well. Label everything and keep flat items on one side because that will allow you to make great use of the space on the lazy susan’s wheels.
4. Create Dividers
These cheap Wal-Mart cutting boards are the ideal dividers because they are light and easy to cut in half with a chop saw. Get a few of these, and when you get to the next part where you create a center piece, you’ll see how easy these cutting boards are to use.
5. Build Your Centerpiece
This pine board is very easy to cut and stencil out. All you need is a small saw and it will effectively stand firm in your cabinet while the weight of the cutting board pieces keep it firmly in place. This is the perfect organizer for your lazy susan.
