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!

First shot is from What's Ur Home Story and features our emerald green glass knob!

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!

These next two shot from Fallon at Market House Restorations show off our Depression Glass Collection amazingly! She used the matching clear glass knobs and pulls!

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.

D. Lawless Friends & Partner Projects: March Madness Edition

I'm not huge into sports anymore, but my favorite event of the year is the NCAA basketball tourney! I love how it's unpredictable and anyone can win. I'm normally a University of Kentucky fan as I grew up in the IL, KY, IN tri-state corner and their games were always on TV more than even the University of IL games. But this year MY LOYOLA RAMBLERS made the tourney! Loyola University Chicago is the only team from IL to ever win the NCAA title and they are going for it again! I won't hold my breath though...they are a bit of an underdog let's just say...

Okay, enough of my RAMBLING! :) That was corny...seriously here are some mad awesome projects from the DLH Friends group!

First up is this lovely two piece bedroom set from E Jay Vintage Modern! The cup pulls are actually our "ready to fire" ceramic pulls from our DIY section, but they look great in their plain Jane form on the little dresser. As usual, great staging and photography as well!

Next up, Kate at Kate&Barrel used some vintage art deco pulls to top off this nicely updated dresser! The flower detail on the top and bottom really make the piece and I think she made the perfect hardware choice!

Look at this junker! How could anyone fix it up!?! Christina at Southern Furniture Flippers must have some great artistic vision because she realized that this coffee table was just waiting to be fixed up and turned beautiful. Really wonderful work, I love seeing the befores! Especially when they are that junky, very impressive!

I am a big fan of bright colors and Betty at Welcome Back Beautiful really came through with this great update of a small dresser. The paint job and the dark hardware are a great match and the wood detail on the corners is fabulous!

And finally a nice piece by Matthew Buttner of Combat Veterans Restoration and Rehab. Matthew has a great mission for his page and I'm currently working with him to fix up and draw attention to our military discount on the website! The first shot shows off his skills at giving the client exactly what she wants!

D. Lawless Friends Projects: Go Away Winter Edition

Good day to everyone! The time change magically has given us more time! Oh wait, it didn't, but it feels like it? In my opinion we need to ditch daylight savings time. It's ridiculous and is linked to a greater incidence of heart attack!!  But this is a hardware blog so I'll shut up about that. Just thought it was interesting.

But if daylight savings doesn't technically brighten our day, then we can still rely on my partners and customers to wow us with beautiful furniture design and updates each week!

First up I'll show off this nice before and after collage from Mara at Vintage & Retail Therapy. This post was the top post in the month of February in our Facebook group and Mara won a $25 gift card to D. Lawless for being the top contributor!

Next up, Fallon at Market House Restorations sent in these amazing photos of our milk glass depression knobs! The little cabinet looks great and her staging skills are off the chart! The matching milk glass vases look amazing!

Lisa at RE-Loved Treasures shared this beautifully updated Victorian Eastlake piece and used some bail pulls from our restoration section! I'm a big fan of mixing wood stain and paint so I think this one looks just great

Here we have several nice photos from Jane at Vintage Transformation Studio on a dark dresser makeover that features some of Liberty Hardware's pineapple rigid bail pulls. Great choice of hardware for a big sturdy dresser like this!

On this lovely dresser makeover Jen at Wildflower Restorations took advantage of our free knobs section for DLH Friends members and it worked out perfectly for both of us! I got nice pictures of the knobs and she saved a little bit on her costs!

And finally we have Margy from the Friends group. Margy operates MKP Crafties, doing all sorts of things besides furniture. I love the great painted detail on the top and front drawers! Looks great and really shows off our pink acrylic knobs well!
