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.
