...because home doesn't happen overnight.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Leslie who has been searching for hardware for an entertainment armoire that she recently purchased at an estate sale. Coincidence? I like to think of it as a small miracle.

I’m all about scoring inexpensive pieces of furniture. Sometimes this means bringing home a scratch-and-dent piece and showing it some love with a fresh coat of paint or new hardware. If you’re into transforming thrift, antique, hand-me-down or IKEA furniture with simple updates then this week’s giveaway is right up your alley.

D. Lawless Hardware is an importer and distributor of cabinet and furniture hardware. They offer a variety of products from coat hooks to pie safe tins {!} to glass knobs – and everything in between and beyond.

I’m really into smaller projects right now after nearly a year of renovations. Not that we don’t have a ton of big projects left but it’s nice to throw in a few hour-long projects here and there for some instant gratification and a confidence boost. Need hardware for a smallish {or BIGish} makeover? Great! See entry details below.

PRIZE: $50 gift certificate to D. Lawless Hardware. There will be two winners this week!

RULES: You must be at least 18 years old and have a shipping address within the U.S. or Canada to enter. One entry per email address.

TO ENTER: Leave a comment on this post proclaiming “HARDWARE ME OUT!” Get it?

DEADLINE: Enter before Thursday, September 13th at 9:00 p.m. EST. Two random winners will be chosen and announced Friday, September 14th.

WHILE YOU’RE AT IT: Share what’s {hard}wearing you out these days. A whole house reno? A full schedule of chauffeuring in the minivan now that the kids are back in school? A demanding job? Late night pinteresting? Pregnancy? A really great workout? I’ll go first. Oh man. Everything wears me out right now. But I think it’s all due to broken night sleep. Mabrey has yet to sleep through the night. I used to think that my boys were great sleepers because I was a great mom. {Layne and Everett were both sleeping 12+ hours a night without waking at Mabrey’s age.} Shyeah. Right. Mabrey has proven that theory completely wrong. I’m doing all the same things I did with my boys and I’ve yet to get more than a five-hour chunk of sleep at a time. It’s only temporary though and I think we’re getting close to the end because she’s gradually stretching her longest periods of sleep. Until then, I’ll be hitting the hay at 9:00 p.m. once or twice a week to catch up.

If you can’t wait to win, you can score a 10% off discount by clicking on the D. Lawless Hardware ad over on the sidebar or using the coupon code ‘tweaking’ at checkout. Don’t forget to like D. Lawless on facebook!

HARDWARE ME OUT!!

We are currently living in a home that was constructed with defective Chinese drywall and are in the process of building a new home. So I would say my current house is hardwaring me out. ;-) Some of the side effects of having CDW is insomnia, increase allergy symptoms, which I have both. I am counting down the days until we are out of here!!

HARDWARE ME OUT! We recently purchased our very first home! I’m truly excited about decorating it, but after drooling over tons of blogs for what feels like forever, I’m having a much harder time that I thought I would. It’s exhausting! I need to just go with the flow and have fun, but I’m wearing myself out worrying about making mistakes. Thank goodness this is the worst that I’ve got (ignoring my job as an attorney)!

HARDWARE ME OUT!! Pregnancy and moving from a 2250sqft house to a 1300sqft house…. (we own both homes and the smaller one is (obviously) cheaper so we’re moving there to save up more moolah to build)! I have an entire house to decorate and when I’m pregnant I can’t make decisions easily AT ALL!!!

I am worn out with all the out of town plans we have had for several weekends in a row. This whole month and next month my husband and I will be out of town every weekend. I am just ready to stay at home and relax for once. Plus, there are so many projects we haven’t been able to get our hands on!

Hardware me out! We’ve been knee deep in renovating our fixer upper for about a year and a half now. We gutted our kitchen to the studs and DIY’d it back up. We move a lot slower than you guys though and we have no kids so I am super impressed with all the work you and HH have done in such a short amount of time!

I also have a babe that’s not sleeping through the night. The longest Claire has gone is 51/2 hours in one stint. Although she’s just two months, running around with her sister who’s 18 months is also proving exhausting.

My husband and I moved about four months ago from a townhome to a 2600+ square foot home. We still own the townhome and did our own reno on finishing the basement before renting it out. Now we’re upgrading our brand-new builder home to be more unique and to fit our personalities – including the yard which we’ve never had before! We live in IN so the drought kind of killed our grass-growing possibilities this year. We both work full time and my husband travels frequently, and just for kicks I’m training for a marathon!

I took a job 26 miles from my house… which on a perfect day would take me less than 30 minutes to drive. Yeah… my average is more like 45 minutes, with the record being an 1 1/2 hours. It’s definitely wearing me out. (love the job though!)
