Piano Makeover from Re-imagined by Lindsay

From time to time we get sent customer projects and I love to see each one and it also gives me something to post! This piano makeover comes from Re-Imagined by Lindsay and is topped off with a couple knobs from us. We met Lindsay through our Free Hardware Friday promotions that we ran all last year (and will start again sometime soon this year) and have gotten a lot of photos from her over time from that.

Lindsay works out of Summerville, SC and is available for recreating your dated pieces or for custom work. Below I’ll show off the piano project in full and then add on a few projects she did for Free Hardware Friday as well as some other work from her Facebook page.

Here’s the before, as you can see, it doesn’t even have legs! Lindsay told me she ended up making the legs herself out of stair railing spindles by painting and glazing them.

Piano Makeover Before
And here are some shots of the finished product with a couple of our knobs topping it off! The knobs are a minute detail but hey, we’ll take it! I mostly just love to see all the DIY people are doing no matter how small a role our hardware plays.

As far as her other work is concerned, I’ll start with this little end table she completed using knobs from Free Hardware Friday. We sent her the knobs in exchange for photos of how she used them.

And here are a few other pieces that she’s posted on her Facebook page. I think she used hardware from us for the two with hardware, although it’s hard to tell from just a photo. Thanks Lindsay!

Our Most Recent Blog Features

The new year has begun and D. Lawless is already being featured on blogs all across the internet. Let’s take one last look back at some of our December blog features though. Look below for the full scoop on our most recent blog features!

This new dining room design comes in on budget and looking fantastic with a purple theme to it. The farmhouse table pictured above was only $20. The corner cabinet, part of the original house, is adorned with our betsy fields glass purple knobs. See how the wall was decorated along with the rest of the room over at Ciburbanity.
This teal, black, and white girl’s bedroom reveal has a lot going on. Complete with polka dots, zebra pattern drawers, and more patterns this is surely a makeover you’ll want to check out. See how it comes together at A Home to Grow Old In.
A new living room with Jessica’s favorite color purple, being incorporated into touches, of a light, bright, and cheerful design. The coffee table is my Art’s Market with a fresh coat of white paint, distressed a bit to appeal to the homeowner’s desire for some rustic elements in this space. And the neutral couch and sofa were donated from an estate sale, with updated new pillows and throws. Shine Your Light will give you the details on the rest of the makeover.
This red, white, and black glamorous master bedroom makeover really has the touches of red popping. From the beautiful red curtains to the red upholstered bench, this bedroom really has it going on now. Check out Lauren Mcbride Blog for the full details on how this room is pieced together.
From trash to treasure, this thrift store headboard makes a great shelf with hooks. An incredible before and after look featured above, shows you what you can do with a little of grunt work and inspiration. The look is a bit of a distressed chalkboard. My re Purposed Life brings you this repurpose complete with our satin nickel double prong hooks.

Bloggers Heart Habitat Roundup!

We were lucky enough to be able to donate to several projects for this year’s Bloggers Heart Habitat. This program teams up bloggers with Habitat for Humanity to create some awesome spaces for the new homeowners. We are a very small part of just a few of these projects, but I thought they were all so nice and that the program was such a great idea that I’m going to share them here and link over to the projects. There were eight total projects and we added a little harder to four of them. I hope we can help out next year too!

The first group of bloggers teamed up to do two bedrooms in one of the houses (I hope I have this straight) and the results are amazing! The bloggers that worked on this house are Lauren McBride, Weekend Craft, A Home to Grow Old In, Fearful & Wonderfully Made, and A Thrifter in Disguise!

The next house was done by an entirely different group of bloggers and they worked on the living room and dining room of another family. These spaces turned out amazing thanks to I am a Homemaker, Kim Macumber Interiors, Shine Your Light, and Ciburbanity!

D. Lawless Glass on Featured Blogs

This little antique server table in a red that certainly catches the eye uses our most popular item the 1-1/4″ clear glass knob. Stacey from Embracing Change makes it all happen from beat up worn out antique furniture to this brand new look in emperors silk.

yellow dresser
I love this yellow dresser using our clear glass knobs from Vintage Refined. Annie Sloan’s Arles gives it the deep yellow color that you see pictured and it’s rich enough that it doesn’t seem nursery, but soft enough that it doesn’t take you back to the 70’s. Fabulous makeover!
