DIY chevron lazy Susan

diy how to make a chevron lazy susan using chevron painters tape and spray paint
Chevron is a cool design pattern from the 1960's and 70's. 
*****
My first attempt on this was an epic fail! The craft paint got lumpy. My second coat of paint pulled off the first, even though I prep sanded and waited for the top coat to dry? So, I scrubbed all the craft paint off and restarted using spray paint. 
***TIP*** 
Reuse your chevron tape! Let it dry after painting, then place onto waxy side of freezer paper. Roll it up to store:)

  1. Hi Michele, I noticed only now that you are on Guidecentral. Liked your projects, and the high-quality photography. Did you need a lot of time to learn how to make professional shots of your work in progress? You're GOOD! - one day I hope to come close to making such photos ;) hugs, Damjana
