Chalkboard Lazy Susan Serving Tray

A lazy susan is handy for kitchen cabinets, large countertops and even in closets and cabinets.  I had a basic lazy susan from Ikea in my craft room that was just begging for an upgrade.  I decided to put this handy piece to use and make a chalkboard lazy susan serving tray.  This serving tray is ideal for the center of a table and allows everyone to access the goodies on the tray without reaching too far across the table.  I added chalkboard paint so I can customize the message for whatever I choose to serve on this tray.

That’s a really simple supply list because it is a really simple project.  This lazy susan is smooth and has a sealer on it.  I started by sanding down the surface to rough it up a bit, this will help the paint stick better.  Using Rust-oleum chalkboard spray paint I sprayed a few light coats and let it dry fully.

Once the paint was dry I primed the chalkboard surface by rubbing a piece of chalk over it and erasing it.  If I were to write on the chalkboard without this step my writing would stick and be very difficult to erase. 

This chalkboard lazy susan serving tray is ready to use!  It’s chilly here and hot tea is a nightly ritual in our home.  I dressed up this serving tray for tea time with my family.  Using this technique I transferred the words Tea Time to the tray then went over them with chalk markers.

I put out my Winterberry tea set and this serving tray is ready to go.  No one has to reach all the way across the table to get what they need.  I love how simple and pretty this chalkboard serving tray is!
