Ever since I did a post on complimentary colors, like blue and orange, I have been obsessing over orange! That same week, I got a custom order for a weathered orange lazy susan. I was so excited!
Do you remember the white one that I refurbished? (pictured below)

I really liked how the French nailhead trim added some bling to the otherwise indiscriminate lazy susan. I liked it so much that I decided to make more and sell them on my Etsy shop- I.Design Marketplace
The white lazy susan is 18" in diameter. This one is only 15". My customer wants to use this smaller version on her desk to corral a candy dish and some of her desk supplies.
I started by painting the wood burnt sienna and then layered two shades of orange paint on top of that. It was fun to scratch, gouge and sand some of the orange paint off in order to reveal the darker color underneath. Once I got it where I liked it, I rubbed a dark walnut stain over the entire piece and finished with two coats of sealer. Of course the finishing touch is the nailhead trim.
I staged it with some of my own desk accessories just to see what it could look like.
The weathered orange finish and the brass nailheads are just a perfect combo! I'm reluctant to let it go :)
Have you been obsessing over any colors lately?
