HEAD TURNER Donna Tunnell wanted a Lazy Susan for the dining room table in her home in Webb City, Missouri, but hadn’t found what she was looking for. “I wanted something more unique than what I could find in the store,” she says.
On a trip to her local antique mall, Donna spotted a secondhand dartboard and snatched it up. It was just the right size to become a Lazy Susan, and she knew she could DIY one with it. “I have always enjoyed crafting because it gives me a chance to exercise my creativity,” she says. “I enjoy making something ordinary into something extraordinary.”
The project was ready in no time, and now it holds everything from napkins and salt and pepper shakers to vases of flowers. And it’s become a conversation starter for guests—just the thing she was looking for.
