Longing for spring....

Or should I say, SPRAY PAINT SEASON. While browsing around in one of the many thrift stores I like to go through, I came across this lazy-susan spice caddy. It was priced at $4.95-- *highway robbery* This is the way the bottles are supposed to be set in the rotating caddy, so you can read the labels on the spice jars. As it stands set up like this, its missing 6 jars....But.... like this... there are no jars missing. Magic~ When I saw this, I immediately thought of using this to hold some of my glitter. Of course, it was needing to be fixed up just a smidge...
I painted each lid with some satin pink spray paint.... Using my printer, I enlarged some vintage gummed sealing labels that I had and glued them onto the lids... Then I used a brown ink pad to age the edges of each lid... I also spray painted the caddy itself with the same pink paint I used on the lids. Lastly, I added some sheet music to the base before screwing it all back together. There you have it, a lazy-susan glitter caddy. I was hoping it would make a bigger dent in my glitter stash. Nuts~

How perfect! I've been on the look out for a spice rack for a while but haven't found one yet; getting impatient after seeing how great yours turned out.

Hi Cheryl! I'm trying to put together a little private easter ornament swap. 6 girls would each make 6 ornies one for each girl. ornies would get mailed to me first week of April and i will mail them right back out. Wondering if you would be interested. It would be fun to "craft" with you! please dont feel bad if you dont think you can. we all get busy sometimes and have to say no. but I am hoping you can squeeze it it and play with us!
hugs

Chery,
HA! Too funny, I have the same caddy that I bought at Target for more than what you paid for it!
I'm using mine for glitter storage too but I like yours better because it's more "foofed" than mine!
