Terrazzo floors and walls have been around for hundreds of years, and this lazy Susan is a good way to get the look on a smaller scale. We've traded traditional marble chunks with a confetti mix of colorful glass that feels both modern and timeless. It's a great project that's also a fun, festive and unexpected gift.
What You Need
1. Before you get started, get everything you need together. Depending on the cement, you have a certain amount of time after you mix it with water, and before it sets.
2. Mix up your cement according to instructions and add the desired amount of glass. I did a couple of test batches until I had a ratio I was happy with.
3. Pour an inch or so of the cement into the mold and let it completely dry. Again, the drying time will depend on the type of cement you use.
4. Invert the bucket, and give it a good bang until it pops out.
5. Roughly sand the edges and bottom until it smooth enough to mount the hardware underneath.
6. Sand the top until the specks of glass appear and you are happy with the top.
7. After wiping the circle of all its dust, let it completely dry. Then mount the hardware on the bottom using strong glue.
Optional: If you actually use near food (versus for something like art supplies) seal it with a matte product.
