This is one of the most creative projects we’ve ever had the pleasure of having our hardware featured on and it comes from Evey’s Creations! The full article features a how to on the redoing the dresser and more interestingly, the decoupage artwork all over the front. And most importantly, to us anyways :), she used some of our octagon glass pulls that have been gaining in popularity a lot lately.
Our icebox hardware is specially designed from years in the furniture making business. We produced or sold so many iceboxes back in the day that we actually had our own reproduction name plates made. The “White Clad” ice box sign as it was originally manufactured was “Simmons Hardware Co.” We replaced Simmons with Lawless back in the early 90’s and actually upset quite a few people with the move. But hey, they are reproductions anyways!
Below the set is seen being used on the popular DIY blog Sawdust 2 Stitches on a re-purposed dresser. We were very lucky to get these great photos of the product in use!
We are lucky to get to work with a number of creative people during our marketing and efforts to grow and Ashley at Vintage Refined is no exception. She recently completed this beautiful yellow dresser makeover and topped it off using some of our clear glass pulls! You can click the image to get through to see her whole article or click here to see the pulls.
A long time coming! This collection of fused glass knobs is the first from Design Studio 180 and we are proud to have them up on our site. Phillip Mambro of Design Studio 180 partnered with us and used our bases to create a variety of styles of modern style glass knobs.
You can see the whole collection here, but for here are a few of my favorites.

Another nice project from local refurbisher Gary with hardware provided by us of course!
He starts with a very worn and dated looking buffet…
Tons of scratches and dings and the hardware was totally shot…
