We started our own line of label holders about 3 or 4 years ago and they have overall been a tremendous success and a wonderful addition to our own D. Lawless brands of hardware products. So many people have used them in different types of projects and pieces of cabinetry and furniture that the post would be too long to show them all. So, today we are just going to show you how they have been used for filing cabinets and card catalogs from our blogging friends.
No Free Hardware Friday, sorry!

It’s been a couple of weeks since I did a Free Hardware Friday. There are only my brother and I working on the website and we’ve got big plans so we are pretty much swamped with what basically amounts to grunt work adding products and photos.

Here’s the knob!

- Give me your address and I send them right over.

Sometimes people have great ideas on how to pretty up everyday things around the house using our hardware and this one from Designs by Studio C is a great example! Personalize your slow cooker with something that’s more your style than the little plastic handle!
We are proud to have worked with tons of different blogs in their furniture makeovers. Today, we are going to take a look at the wonderful variety of dressers with our hardware featured.
experimenting. To freshen it up, the wash technnique was used with Old Ochre. The overall effect reminds me of a distressed wood look. The bail pulls were provided in brass but had a spray coat of oil rubbed bronze used on them.
