Kitchen & Bath Updates with D. Lawless Hardware

It's been awhile since I posted any of the projects we've been featured in around the blogsphere so I'll try to get caught up here. We've had some absolutely gorgeous projects featuring our hardare over the past couple months. I'll post a sample picture and a link to where you can see the full thing. Thanks again to everyone that we worked with to get these beautiful photos!

First up is a beautiful shot of a bathroom makeover that was part of a full master bedroom and bath makeover at House of Jade Interiors! The whole redesign is a stunner and this photo of the bathroom is a perfect sample shot. You can find the pulls here!

Blue & Brass Bath Update

Next up we've got a nice update from Housekaboodle showing off what a simple switch of the hardware can do for your kitchen. She used our new collection of baroque style hardware and the result is wonderful. With D. Lawless prices we're talking only like $30-40 for this hardware upgrade!

Next we have a cool outdoor kitchen from Ask Anna. I love the idea of having some counter space and cabinets outside but I don't have room! :( Anna used our stainless steel hardware so that it would last being outside. Her only mistake is not using a D. Lawless bottle opener! GRRR! JK! :)

And last but not least for today we have a lovely kitchen update from Amber Oliver where she used matching Venetian bronze knobs, pulls, and hinges. All from D. Lawless!


More to come!!

Projects from my DLH Friends!

I've been trying to ramp up my efforts to get pictures on every page of the site (impossible job) and recently opened up my D. Lawless Hardware Friends group to help me out. In the group I'm giving out or discounting hardware to anyone who wants to join and post up their projects after the fact. Below are some examples of the great shots I'm getting back every week!

So far it's a great success! There needs to be three of me though to fully take advantage...

You can click through with any image as well as the links to see more work from each of my friends!

To start, here's the most recent photo to come in from Tammy at Redesigned Frame of Mind. Our label holders are a very popular item because of their price point I'd guess, but I'm running out of places to use all the photos I have! So I'll start here...

Next up we've got another project using our label holders! This time from Sandi at Blah to Ahh. She used a ton of our cup pull label holders on a similar makeover to the one above. Beautiful work and staging as well!

Since, as I keep saying (lol), they are so popular, I'll just stick to the label holders for this post. Next up is a nice little desk makeover from RE-LOVED Treasures that uses just a few of the label pulls to add a touch of detail and function to the drawers.

I'd like to show more, but I also want to keep the blog moving with several posts a week so I'll leave it here and come back with another group of related projects next week. I recently gave some of our wood appliques to about five or six members so I'll have a post featuring those projects soon!

Have a nice week!

The Blog is Back with Painted Gem Creations

It's been about five months since last post and I'm happy to finally get back to posting. We did a minor blog redesign and reorganized and here we go!

I'm happy to show off some great photos from a recent project by a member of our D. Lawless Hardware Friends Facebook group. Colleen runs Painted Gem Creations as a website and a Facebook page and I'm very happy to have gotten to know here and work with her.

In the following preview you can see this antique english drop pull in use on a beautiful antique phonograph table makeover. You can click over to her website to see the post here. We are sooo lucky to have these pictures, as anyone can see by clicking through to the product page, our pictures was horrible!

Sales here we come! It's an original D. Lawless product and really looks nice, but we still have a on of holdover photos from back in like 1999 when we first started! There is always so much to do these things just get left behind...


I'm only previewing a nice shot of the hardware and a finished shot of the full thing, but there is a whole article and the entire DIY process on Painted Gem Creations blog. Please click over and support our independent furniture designer partners!!

Hopefully I post way more often the rest of the coming year. It will be easy if I keep getting projects like this!!

Free Hardware Friday Update

We are currently moving our blog from blogger to our main domain. This is quite the job and we've had help at it, but I am putting of FHF's until the move. Then I'll have a nice one for everyone.

We are excited about our blog move and thanks to all the readers that made moving the blog to our main site actually worth doing!

Furniture Painting University Partnership

Furniture Painting University Offer

We are happy to announce a mutually beneficial partnership between us and Furniture Painting University. Members of FPU members are privy to all sorts of goodies besides the expert painting advice including a 10% discount at D. Lawless Hardware.

From their website as they can tell you about themselves better than I can...

"Our MISSION is to provide detailed instructional videos with supply lists, step-by-step tutorials and tips and tricks to make things easier.  We are giving you everything you need to have a successful and standout furniture flipping business. We want YOU to be able to create one-of-a-kind finishes for your customers. We want YOU to be able to stand out from the crowd."

Today though we are announcing a special promotion that I'm very excited about. Starting now, members can get a $25 gift card in exchange for photos of how they used their D. Lawless hardware. Since most of the members are businesses or aspiring businesses, they are taking photos anyways! So just send them to me and get a gift card!

The pictures make our site beautiful and give our customers an easy way to see how the pull will look in use. We owe a great deal of our recent success to our blog partners who have been providing photos up to this point.

D. Lawless will also PROMOTE YOU while we promote ourselves. I'll tag you on social and even include you in blog posts like Shabby Life who already sent me photos even though we JUST started! Here's her beautiful work using some of our antique english bail pulls! I will also post up her images and credit her on the product page shortly.

Free Hardware Friday #40

THIS PROMOTION HAS ENDED. PLEASE CHECK BACK NEXT WEEK.

Good morning! Spring is here! Well...maybe...I'm calling it spring.

I have a nice simple polished chrome knob from Liberty Hardware today. Normally retails at $1.78 but you can trade me pictures of the project you put 'em on and get as many as you want for free! No catches, nothing by you up front. All based on a promise. I have been surprised in the past by how many people have taken the knobs, the project got cancelled and they end up trying to mail them back to me. So I know our readers are promise keepers!

Here's the knob. As I said, from Liberty Hardware and it's 1 1/4" which is pretty well just a standard sized knob.

Free Hardware Friday - Polished Chrome Knob - D. Lawless Hardware

The rules are the same as every week...
  1.  Promise me (Derrick Lawless) in writing at the e-mail lawlesshardware (at) gmail (dot) com that you will take photos of your project in a timely manner (I am quite lenient and have no enforcement mechanism, lol) and send them to me.
  2. Describe your project and tell me how many knobs you need.
  3. Give me your address and I send them right over.
* PLEASE DO EACH OF THESE STEPS! I am amazed by how many people just tell me they want 8 knobs and give no other information or written promise. If I have to do extra work (like write extra e-mails asking for address) the promotion ceases to be nearly as valuable to me! :)

See you next week and thanks to all that participate!

THIS PROMOTION IS NOW CLOSED. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR NEXT WEEK'S PIECE!

It's been awhile, we are super busy over the holidays and close down for a couple weeks and all that bleeds into being busy upon return. But here I am and I have a nice piece of hardware to get us going on this first Friday of February!

Today's knob is a modern looking, or Asian style knob from Liberty Hardware. We normally sell it for $1.99 but you can have as many as you need free of charge if you promise to send us pictures of how you use them! It's flat black!

The promotion ends at 5pm central!
