Additional Information



  • Cabinet
  • Lazy Susan swivel – link to order below
  • Miter saw
  • 1"x12" poplar lumber
  • Nail gun or hammer & nails
  • Cordless drill – drill bits
  • 1/2" Forstner bit
  • 4 - 1-1/4" bolts with nuts
  • 220 grit sandpaper


1. Sand the entire storage unit with 220 grit sandpaper. Using a palm sander will cut the sanding time in half.
2. Wipe down the storage unit with a tack cloth or very damp paper towel to remove all dust.
3. To construct the swivel base, glue two boards (11"x15") together to create a solid base; for the Lazy Susan to work, there needs to be a base to support the structure. Use wood glue and clamp the two boards together. Allow to dry overnight.
4. Place the Lazy Susan onto the boards, making sure that it is centered. Mark the location of the attachment holes and mark with a pencil. Drill small pilot holes through the board.
5. Drill 1/2" holes with a Forstner bit where the pilot holes are located on one side of the base board.
6. Attach the Lazy Susan into position using lag bolts; the base is now attached to the cabinet.
7. Paint the cabinet to the color of your choice. Use a latex satin paint.
8. To add detail to the cabinet, wallpaper the inside the cabinet shelves. Add picture frames and mirrors to the sides as well.
