Coming D. Lawless Hardware Products Preview

 Short post. All these products are coming by the end of the year. The clear pulls there are an acrylic version of our depression glass knobs. The bin pulls are 64mm and we will eventually add several more finishes. The rest is just more stuff for our box hardware section as it is one of our busiest sections and we like to continually add new options.

Oil Rubbed Bronze Bar Pulls with Grey Birch Designs

I was recently lucky enough to work with Kaycie from Grey Birch Designs on her kitchen makeover and I was absolutely floored with the results! The kitchen looks fantastic and I got some of the best photos of our oil rubbed bronze bar pulls I could ever imagine! A kitchen like this I wanted to share with everyone. So without further ado I'll post a few shots here and you can see even more on the product pages.

The oil rubbed bronze bar pull finish is perfect for kitchens like this with good lighting. In darker rooms the bronze just looks black, but with good lighting  you get the warm bronze finish showing well and not clashing or standing out as starkly on the cabinets.

Big thank you again to Grey Birch Designs! Grey Birch Designs does kitchen and other custom design work out of the Salt Lake City area in Utah. You can find their wonderful blog here and you can follow them on Facebook as well with the link at the top!

Designs by Dee

As most of our customers have seen, our site is full of wonderful photography and projects from businesses, customers, and hobbyists. I have been collecting photos and working with other small businesses for about ten years now and collectively these photos really make our site a unique store. I am grateful to all my contributors but from time to time like to feature a business that has provided a lot of photography over the years.

So today I am featuring Designs by Dee! Stationed just north of Nashville, TN Designs by Dee is ready for custom work anywhere in the Nashville area! I have known Denise for several years now and I bet there are probably at a bare minimum ten photo sets of hers on the site, possibly closer to 20. I know for a fact these photos have increased on sales on the products and Denise also loves to use our D. Lawless original hardware so that makes me extra happy. I linked her personal website above, but she also has an active Facebook page.

A recent piece uses our antique pewter cup pulls and knobs with an ornate rose pattern. They go perfectly on this beautiful natural wood stain hutch! With the knobs, she added her own backplate that don't normally come with the knobs. Looks fantastic! But I'm not sure if the backplate is from us.

This next piece is another beautiful wood stain piece and this time featuring a set of our wood appliques! The dresser knobs look great as well! They must be from somewhere else but I think the escutcheons are ours too! Gorgeous!

And proving how great a business partner and customer to D. Lawless Designs by Dee is, I went to her Facebook page while writing this and her latest piece features hardware from us as well! This sideboard is stunning and features matching cup pulls and drop pulls from Liberty Hardware of which we carry their entire line. Ornate and detailed tops are one of Denise's specialties and details like these really make a piece one of a kind.

Please take a second to like and follow Designs by Dee if you are the furniture artist type and make a mental note if you are in the Nashville area! I'll soon try to start featuring more of our top contributors so that we can all continue to succeed and create beautiful things together!
