The Lawless Bros. social media team will be at Summer Camp Music Festival this weekend. If you can find us we’ll give you a gift card. Good luck! We’ll be one of these people and will be wearing tiny top hats.
Over the past several years for marketing online I’ve had the pleasure of being introduced to a lot of great products that are also used in our kitchen and furniture niche. One of those companies is General Finishes who I kept seeing our partners using on the same projects that our hardware was being used on.
Over the past year or so I’ve gotten to know some of the team at General Finishes and we’ll be having a booth at the General Finishes Flippin Furniture Expo in Chicago this year. When gathering some promotional material to share in the lead up to the event it struck me that there had to be a ton of furniture flips featuring both products. So I multi tasked this blog post while gathering information and photos for them to promote us as a partner at the show.
As usual, I’m sure I missed many posts, so if you want yours included just let me know and I’ll add it. These posts all feature a piece of junk turned beautiful by a talented blogger using General Finishes paint and D. Lawless Hardware. Click through to see the full before and afters!
The first post comes from 38th Street and shows off a beautiful wide Jefferson dresser with antique copper hardware and Queenstown Gray milk paint.
This next post features one of our most popular pieces of hardware the antique pewter fleur de lis knob we have at a great price. Sheila of Plum Doodles used Snow White milk paint from General Finishes.
Next up is this rustic dresser from Cassie at Primitive & Proper using sun aged antique style glass pulls from us and White Winter Glaze from General Finishes.
The next post is from the first ever D. Lawless All-Star! Stacey at Embracing Change used General Finishes Persian Blue paint alongside our very affordable acrylic pumpkin style knobs on a nice little hall table.
This post is just like a who’s who of my longest running blog partners! Next up is one of the first people I ever had the pleasure of working with, Angela from Number Fifty-Three. Angela uses our milk black glass knobs alongside General Finishes Patina Green on this hall dresser.
Next up is a nice repurposed tall black dresser from My Repurposed Life. Gail used our super popular label holders and Lamp Black paint from General Finishes.
Another frequent poster for us is Jenny from Evolution of Style. Normally she’s doing kitchens, but she did a great job on these small end tables using our cut glass knobs and General Finishes Driftwood.
This next dresser is a true beauty with all the gold trim! Jenny from Refresh Living used our milk white glass knobs with Coastal Blue from General Finishes really turn an old scuffed up piece into something that would look great anywhere.
This next project from Highstyle Restyle uses our label holders and Driftwood from General Finishes to turn a worn out little dresser into a lovely little apothecary cart.
This closeup of Midnight Blue paint and our ornate ceramic knobs is from a nice empire desk makeover at Patina Paradise!
I love the staging and the colors everytime I see this shot of our green cut glass knobs from Art is Beauty. Our glass knobs pair perfectly with Java Gel and Gray General Finishes paint on this hall table makeover.
And last but not least is this cabinet makeover from Noble Vintage featuring our label holders and Sage Green paint from General Finishes!
We deal a lot in closeouts from businesses that unfortunately didn’t make it or from people that just plain want rid of a lot of hardware. A couple years back we picked up a huge load of Hillman Hardware that was in TOTAL disarray. Well, with everything going on we sat on it and sorted it on and off for the last couple years, but we just now got it ready for sale.
So if your are looking for high quality screws, anchors, bolts, picture frame hangers, nuts, etc. then we have THE BEST prices on these items from Hillman Hardware, a quality name in hardware for years and years.
We just got started with about 70 items, all card packed and brand new. Over the next few months we’ll be listing hundreds and hundreds of this utility hardware which will be good for us and our customers as we have had a sparse selection of this type of stuff in the past and our prices will of course embarrass the competition!
Check out the selection here: http://www.dlawlesshardware.com/hillman-hardware.html
I’m looking forward to lots of participants heading into our hiatus! Please contact me at lawlesshardware (at) gmail (dot) com to participate!
Over the years we’ve had the opportunity to work with many very talented people and there are a few that have done a LOT of projects with our hardware. One of these people is Stacey from Embracing Change. The other day she wrote to me with yet another project and post which she used our glass knobs on. It got me thinking…how many posts have you done for us? Did I even give you hardware for half of these posts? Don’t I need something to write about on our blog? LOL! So this is the first edition of D. Lawless All Stars! There are several others out there but Stacey is the perfect place to start.
Below I’m just gonna shoot through a nice group of projects using our hardware she’s done over the years as a big thank you to her. She always gives us very high quality photography (the most important thing of course) on beautiful projects. You can click each image to see the full furniture makeover, some of the before and afters are quite impressive!
I had to click “next page” in her site search three times to find the first post she did with our hardware back on January 1st of 2014 on a rustic Amish style cabinet with our mint green glass knobs. From then on the floodgates were open!
It’s the weekend! Get yourself some knobs! We are giving away as many of the knob below as you need to complete your project if you promise to send us pictures of the project. That’s it, no catches, shipping is free as well!
The rules are the same as every week….
For those of you who like to participate just contact Derrick at lawlesshardware (at) gmail (dot) com.
Have a nice weekend!
I recently got my advice on how to minimize call volume quoted on nanorep.com. We love talking to you all of course! 🙂 But that costs us money and we’d be doing a better job if all the information was clearly laid out so you didn’t even have reason to have to pick up the phone.
That’s pretty much what I told them anyways…I’m about the 7th or 8th entry down. It will be easy to find me because the first 7 bio pics are all people in suits and then I show up with bio pic eating pizza, LOL! I didn’t provide one and she used my google ID…
While trying to figure out cheap and effective ways of promoting our website I’ve ended up working with a lot of folks who are also very price conscious themselves. So after working with about the 200th small time refinishing business or hobbyist doing this type of stuff for a few extra bucks, I thought to myself that this must be a very in demand service.
