Repurposed. Keurig Cup Carousel.

Happy Monday Folks!


I found this Keurig Carousel at the thrift for a few bucks and knew I could figure out how to use it for something else.  I desperately needed a way to keep all my acrylic paint organized and yet have them displayed so I could still see the colors easy enough.  After a few adaptations this Keurig carousel was perfect! 


Step 1: Spray paint Keurig Caruosel. I went with a Rustoleum metallic gold


Step 2: The acrylic paint did not work “as is” unfortunately I had to make the middle size “thicker” in order for the acrylic pain containers to actually stay. So I troublshooted several different ways to make this work and this was my solution.  I found a thick piece of paper, almost like a cardboard texture, and fed it through, circled it around the middle pole until it was the thickness I needed to fill the gap in order for the acrylic pain containers to stay.




Step 3: Tape the paper after you found the desired width needed



Step 4: To insure the paper around the middle pole stayed in place I simply, stuffed it with paper towels, so it would not move around and stayed firm.

Step 5: Make a nice circle for the top of the carousel, so it looks prettier. I just used leftover paper, cut the circle width I need, and cut a small slit to slide it on. I did not tape mine, but you could if you wanted to.

Boom. Done. Organized.


Happy Repurposing!
