July D. Lawless Blog Features

Today I get to show off all the projects from all the blogs that used hardware from us over the last month. We got lucky and had several posts go up that weren’t sponsored at all and those are ALWAYS welcome of course! This round up of articles each month has become our most popular blog series! If only because I get to tag 20 people at once, lol! But seriously, we get a ton of views on these articles and for good reason, the projects and photography are all wonderful.

Without further ado I’ll start with a post from The Kim Six Fix where she used this beautiful set of matching satin nickel knobs and pulls on a dresser makeover. She only paid $9 for the dresser!

Here we have a huge dresser totally made over by Kandice at Just the Woods. She painted the hardware to get exactly the finish she wanted and the results are awesome!

Seems like we’ve got one from Number Fifty-Three every month and I’m so glad I can say that! This little cabinet makeover turns an old cabinet into the faux apothecary style with a beautiful paint job with General Finishes.

Another of our monthlies comes to us in this lovely new kitchen from Evolution of Style. The old kitchen was blue and let’s just say too much blue. But now it’s a clean, bright white with satin nickel hardware!

Next up is another white kitchen from Bless’er House, this time in the farmhouse style. I’m really partial to white kitchens that use dark hardware. The contrast is always eye catching to me. The shot below shows off the farmhouse style sink and the dark oil rubbed bronze hardware.

The next post is one from June actually, but I missed it because I didn’t provide the hardware for it and missed it in my web tools! From Delightfully Noted, this DIY antique wood filing cabinet features our little label holders! Jennifer was kind enough to link over to our site so we owe her one!

11 White Kitchen Design Ideas

Over the years we’ve been working with the decor and design crowd we’ve had the pleasure of being the hardware source for a number of beautiful white kitchens. Luckily, a lot of the folks we work with also run business websites or blogs featuring their work and they don’t mind if I use their work as examples!

Below I’ve listed many of the beautiful white kitchens from around the design world featuring hardware available at D. Lawless Hardware. However, hardware is just a small part of these projects. And I know most of you are here for ideas beyond hardware. So I’ve left the marketing to a minimum and I’ll just focus on the full kitchen space so that those of you with a redesign in your future can gather some ideas for what you want in your home.

This first kitchen comes from I Heart Naptime. Jamielyn updated her kitchen with a nice pairing of white and grey tones. For the cabinet hardware she decided to keep it as simple as possible with little black knobs on each cabinet. Also, stainless steel appliances go great with the tile and creates a nice sliding scale of tones from the white cabinets to the black cabinet knobs.

This white kitchen from French Country Cottage keeps nearly everything white and instead of creating a contrast with the hardware, Courtney uses subtle antique brasses which reflect a soft light and go nicely with the whites.

Another nice example of a white and grey tone kitchen comes from Suburble. This kitchen sticks a bit more to the white and grey scheme with the grey paint around the cabinet and the satin nickel hardware. The satin nickel hardware matches the stainless steel appliances perfectly and fits right in with the grey tones from the rest of the kitchen.

This fine example of creating contrast in your white kitchen comes from The Woodgrain Cottage. Shayna used black light fixtures and black hardware on the white background of the kitchen to create a truly beautiful kitchen in this fixer upper. The before and after is quite amazing!

Wow! This next post from Maison de Pax shows off why satin nickel and white are used together so often. Stainless steel and satin nickel are pretty much interchangeable and she uses this to her advantage by matching her appliances with satin nickel hardware, light fixtures, and faucet. A great touch is the soft grey paint above and the soft grey tile on the floor.

Ashley at Cherished Bliss brings us this lovely white kitchen makeover with a bit of a twist. She uses antique pewter hardware, grey tile, and a wood counter top to really add some nice touches and set her white kitchen apart from many of the others we’ve seen. The antique pewter hardware is a great touch, creating contrast with the white cabinets but staying within the white and grey pallet.
Love this beautiful Farmhouse Cottage Kitchen. Shaker style cabinets, butcher block counter tops, and cast iron sink. All done on a budget!

This kitchen comes to us from Rachel at Shades of Blue Interiors where she just built and added this DIY kitchen island to her white kitchen. This beauty shows off what can be done with wood tones and soft earth tones around a white kitchen. White cabinet and white appliances are a nice background for the wood counter tops, cutting boards, and blinds. Also the wood goes really nicely with the earth tone floor tiles. Oil rubbed bronze hardware of course has a brownish tint and fits in nicely.

The next kitchen is a mix of white and grey and show off a beautiful match between matte chrome hardware, stainless steel appliances and soft grey cabinets. You can see the full makeover at Yellow Bliss Road.

The following examples will give you taste of how stainless steel bar pulls are a great choice to go with in your white kitchen, especially if you are sporting stainless steel appliances. The first example is from Decor Chick.

And the second example is from Wife in Progress. A lot of people think bar pulls give too much of an industrial look, but when paired with stainless steel appliances, many times bar pulls can help give a modern and stylish look. The Lawless family actually has stainless steel appliances paired with bar pulls in their kitchen.

The final white kitchen comes from Just a Girl and her Blog and shows how having a white kitchen can help make even a small space seem larger. Abby has black appliances in this kitchen and they look great against the white background.
