Rotating Hobby Organizer

Good morning everyone.  Gina here today with one of my absolute favorite storage pieces.  This is the Rotating Hobby Organizer and it is such a handy way to store items that I use frequently.

The organizer ships flat but is quite easy to assemble.  I began with a dry assemble from the center out.  Once I knew where all the pieces fit, I started gluing the organizer together using Scotch Quick Dry glue. 

For the base piece, I decided to color only the area that would show.  I used a mega sized Sharpie marker but acrylic paint or distress paint would work just as well.

Here is the assembled organizer, ready for paper.  I chose a roll of kraft and black wrapping paper from my dollar store for this one, but have used scrapbook paper in the past.

I began by covering the largest areas first, gluing down the paper and using a brayer to make sure I got all the air out.

Once papered, I used the same Sharpie marker to color the edges of the boards.  At this point I used Beacon 3 in 1 glue to attach the lazy susan hardware piece to the bottom of the organizer.

I assembled the drawers next, papered the fronts and used a wooden bead, nut and bolt to make pull knobs.

Here is the finished organizer.  It holds an incredible amount of tools and supplies and keeps them right at your fingertips.
