"Spinning" with Spool Ideas...

I just sprayed the spool with a matte poly...and left it as is for a little industrial charm.
The perfect height for assorted spices...
...and spin it around for sweetners etc.
It would also be the perfect height for storing craft paints in a studio or project room.
Practical...and pretty??

The other day I shared my large spool ottman for my patio.  I also had a smaller wooden spool in my stash.  I just added a Lazy Susan to the bottom and it became a convenient spot to store my everyday spices...

Thanks for the inspiration!

I have that exact Westinghouse clock! Wish I had somewhere to plug it in and use it in my kitchen. Posted: 6:57 am on August 29th
