D. Lawless Friends Projects: Final Four Edition

I am a University of Kentucky fan as I grew up in the Tri-State area getting all their games on TV, but this year my alma mater Loyola University has miraculously made it to the Final Four!

I was trying to think of things as unlikely as this but nothing satisfies. They even came to Peoria early this year and got beat by Bradley! Ha! Yet here they are. I remember passing the single basketball trophy while on campus showing off their 1963 NCAA title and thinking they would NEVER add to the display. So fingers crossed, go Ramblers!!

Now, onto people that perform at a high level a bit more consistently than the Ramblers...

First up is Amy at Saved by A.Bell. She used these vintage style bail pulls on a nice dresser makeover. I am a fan of contrast between the hardware and where it's mounted, so I think this looks very nice. I also love her staging area with the brick wall!

Lee Ann at Creative Moments is a long time customer and contributor who always does fantastic work. On this project she used our glass knobs and appliques to fix up this old dresser into a beauty! Wonderful work on the applique detail!

Another beauty by Tommye at Redesigned by Doherty! She used our milk glass cabinet knobs on a lovely pink vanity makeover! Tommye does great work every time and is one of our best customers! Thank you Tommye!

This next one is a real beauty from Chasity at Junkin' Jones Gang!  She used our bail pulls and modified them to create one of kind hardware. Custom hardware really makes a piece stand out and this is a great example.

And finally we have a nice project from Beth at Trinity Farmhouse Interiors did this project through the Furniture Painting University program. Members of FPU can turn in photography from their first D. Lawless order and receive a gift card towards their next purchase. Working out well for me obviously!!

I've been racking in the photos lately so I'll probably have another post this week to try and get caught up. Thank you to all my contributors and please join our mailing list!!

D. Lawless Hardware Friends Projects: 50 Degrees & Snowing Edition

So many group members have graciously been submitting photography that I am getting behind. That's a good thing though! The next few posts will probably be short and to the point so that I can get everyone featured and get caught back up.

So assuming everyone isn't buried in snow and can read this. I'll get started!

First up is a real life friend of mine (I met her at the General Finishes Expo) Val at Love My DIY Home! Val used matching hardware from Liberty in a nice Venetian Bronze finish and this a good example of a perfect hardware match. The bronze pulls really go perfectly with the tones of the dresser!

Next up, Kim at Furniture Rescue sent in these wonderful photos of our brass restoration hardware in use on a nice little dresser update. I saw it every time, but brass and blue is my favorite look! Gorgeous!

Here I'm happy to show off two pieces using birdcage style knobs from Rhonda at This Life Goes On. Both pieces looks great and the staging is wonderful as well. Rhonda is stationed up in Wisconsin so make sure and look her up if you have custom work that needs done in her area!

Big thank you to Kate at Kate&Barrel for sending in another beautiful furniture update! I always love featuring Kate's work and this is no exception. She used our original scroll work cup pulls and the result is fantastic!

And finally we have a big, beautiful hutch from Donna at Re-Fabulous Furniture. The distressed paint job is wonderful and totally consistent throughout the piece. That's tough to do and whoever ends up with this piece will have added a real bit of beauty to their home!

More to come later this week as I get caught up. Thank you to our contributors! Join our mailing list for more projects and great deals!

The D. Lawless Hardware Depression Glass Collection



The D. Lawless Hardware Depression Glass Collection has been curated over 20 years by Dave Lawless who has more than enough experience in the glass business. For over 40 years D. Lawless has carried a large stock of real antique and vintage glassware from Smith Glass, Westmoreland, and many others.  Along with that, Tru-Vex glass manufactures bent glass for use in hundreds of thousands of curio cabinets for showing off the glass. So if there is one thing we know, it's glass!

The shades and colors in this collection are directly inspired by the real depression glass we have in our brick and mortar store. We even created carnival glass knobs and pulls that can't be found anywhere else! This collection is high quality and you can't get better depression glass by paying more. To prove it we have a ton of wonderful photos from professional home and furniture designers!

Just received this great set of photos from Eastern Shore Chic of our clear glass knobs used on a wonderful, high detail dresser makeover. Wonderful!

D. Lawless Partners: Spring Equinox Edition

Spring is here! Depending on where you are north to south it may already be Spring! What's that? You thought it was Spring when they told you it was? And it is the same for everyone? No way! The Spring equinox signaling the beginning of Spring actually happens at a different time for everyone depending on how far north or south they live. So Spring is here for some, and other have to wait a LITTLE longer.

What you don't have to wait for is beautiful projects featuring D. Lawless Hardware! This week we have a ton of beauties!

Kicking us off is Designs by Dee where Denise used our solid brass restoration cup pulls and matching drop pulls on this beautiful china cabinet. I probably say it every time I see it, but brass and blue is one of my favorite looks and this piece is a great example of why. I also really love how the wood trim and detail was left stained. A real beauty!  Here are the cup pulls.

Next up, Belinda at Flippin Furniture Design comes through again from across the river! The birdcage knobs are the perfect fit for this made over hall table. The gray tones of the piece really go well with the pewter finish of the hardware. Wonderful!

Next up we have a great usage of our depression glass knobs on a beautiful detailed cabinet from Jen at Wildflower Restorations. Jen is another central IL furniture restorer. I love working with talented people that are so close to me!

Jaime at Serendipity Chic Furniture really came through with a beauty this time! The distressing on this piece is perfect and the dark antique english drop pulls go perfectly with the black paint job on the drawers! Great staging as well!

And for the last entry of the day, Melissa at Purposely Repurposed had some irregularly spaced holes to fill on this dresser makeover and use some sleek cable style pulls that can be adjusted to fit a range of existing centers.
