Kitchen Renovation

Planning a kitchen remodel or renovation can seem like an daunting task, but it doesn't have to be. With a little research and planning you can get started on creating the kitchen of your dreams. Sherry, from the Savvy Apron, did just that redesigning her original kitchen into a modern farmhouse kitchen in just 6 weeks!

Follow along as she shares her DIY Kitchen Remodel Reveal that includes project plans, inspiration and a few decorative Liberty cabinet pulls, knobs and hinges for a finishing touch.  

"After wanting to update our kitchen for years, we finally bit the bullet and did it. My husband and I purchased our home 14 years ago. The home was built in the early 90’s and had oak cabinets and Formica countertops. We have so many projects that we want to do at our lake house so we wanted to keep the cost of our home kitchen remodel down as much as possible. We knew that kitchen remodels are expensive so we decided to do what we always do and try to do the work ourselves."

The DIY Project we partnered with BEHR Paint on was so much fun! Attendees had the opportunity to pick a serving tray or a hook rack, paint it with some of BEHR’s newest colors, then add Liberty decorative hardware as a finishing touch.


Attendees created so many unique and beautiful combinations of paint and decorative hardware to build their very own hook racks and serving trays – great job by all! Below are some of the designs created and shared via social media:


The Home Depot, this year’s Platinum Sponsor, was there enrolling DIYers and Bloggers as honorary members of the #DIYHallofFame. Each member received a patch and exclusive Home Depot swag + the opportunity to be featured on their #DIYHallofFame social media board which shared LIVE social posts from the event. See our Liberty Facebook post featured near the bottom. :)

Liberty Hook Rack Project - Haven Conference 2017
Tools
:

  • Drill with drill bits (Use a smaller drill bit when doing hooks and slightly larger for the knob)
  • Paint brush or roller
  • 8x32 x 5/8” machine screws (Use on knobs)
  • #8x1/2” wood screws (Use on Hooks)
  • Knobs
  • Hooks
  • Paint

 
Step 1: Drill Holes for Knobs and/or Hooks

Liberty DIY Hook Rack Project - Haven 2017

First, measure out evenly your knobs and hooks on the wood rail. Mark your spots and pick the correct drill bit for your drill (You can do this by matching up the end of the drill bit to the end of the screw). Then drill your holes based on where you made your drill marks.

You don’t have to use all hooks or all knobs, you can mix it up and use both, just remember not to use the same drill bit for different pieces of hardware.

Step 2: Paint


Liberty DIY Hook Rack Painting - Haven 2017

Once the holes are drilled you can paint your unfinished wood rail. Choose a color that matches your décor, hardware or just something that speaks to you. BEHR Premium Plus Ultra Interior Hi-Gloss is a great line of paint to choose from and has many options. Use a paint brush or roller to paint on 2 -3 coats (No need to paint the back as that will not be shown).

Step 3: Add Knobs and/or Hooks

Liberty DIY Hook Rack Hardware - Haven 2017

Add your hardware to your rail. If you are using knobs, place your machines screws in the holes from the back of the rail and then twist on the knob until tight (you might want to tighten further with a screw driver). If you are using hooks, place the hook in place where you can see the holes on the board line up with the holes on the front of the hook and screw the wood screws in from the front of the rail (again, a screw driver or drill might help to tighten your screws).

Step 4: Style and Enjoy!


Liberty DIY Hook Rack Project Finished - Haven 2017

Once you've completed your own Hook Rack, we'd love to see your completed project! Snap a photo and share it with us on Facebook or Instagram using hashtag #MyLibertyLook

How a few organizing tricks can declutter your home, health and life

Did you know that getting organized can do more than make your home look nice? It’s true. Studies have shown that cleaning and organizing your space can have a positive impact on productivity, stress, and your overall wellbeing.  Take control of your clutter, with a few simple tips and tricks from Liberty. Less mess, less stress with Liberty

Almost 50% of Americans believe that cleanliness and organization at home are among their top five stressors. Ever wonder how clutter is affecting your life?
  • A recent study showed that people with organized homes had less physical symptoms like stress, exhaustion and depression than those with cluttered homes.
  • Clutter is linked with higher levels of anxiety that can negatively impact your immune system, heart, and other important bodily functions.
  • Clutter is more than just the physical “stuff” lying around, clutter can cause your senses to work and focus on it creating extra work for your brain!
  • On average people spend 55 minutes a day up to 12 days of the year looking for misplaced items.
  • Nearly 23% of adults don’t pay their bills on time because they lose them.
  • It isn’t just extra stuff in your home, it’s extra stuff to think about too and can cause your senses to work and focus on things that aren’t necessary!
Cleanliness is a top 5 stressor Is this enough to stress you out? Don't worry!  We've compiled a few tips and tricks to help you start to get more organized, feel more calm and relaxed and take control of your clutter!



1. Start with your entryway:  If the kitchen is the heart of the home, the entryway is the pulse.  Your entryway is the area in your home for coming and going, is often a shared space in your home, and can become a drop zone filled with clutter.  There are a few simple adjustments to your entry way that can make a big difference: 

a. Designate Space: Whether each person in the family receives their own space, or this is a shared area - make sure you have carved out some room for all the stuff that gets contained here.

b. Get the Stuff Off the Floor:  Try using decorative hooks and hook racks to hang items instead of collecting them in piles.  Give each person enough hooks to control their items such as hats, scarves, backpacks, purses, etc.

c. Control the Shoes: Shoes tend to be one of the largest collection piles and can easily be forgotten and tripped over.  Try small cubbies to contain each pair, or a low mounted hook rack close to the floor to hang shoes on.  You can even set out trays to place shoes during messier seasons.

d. Ready to Go:  Nothing is more time-consuming, frustrating or stressful than searching for your keys when you are on your way out the door!  A big benefit to having your entryway organized is that it makes your house when everything you need to leave is in one central location!  Use a stylish key hook and keep all your items together and close to the door for a quick getaway.

e.  Don't forget the Mail:  Bills, junk mail, magazines, they all tend to come through the front door and stay right in the entry way adding to the clutter.  Try using the industrial basket with coat hooks as a mail organizer.  Sort and toss the un-needed items as soon as you walk in and store the items you do need in easy to access baskets.  You can add multiple baskets for additional layers of organization.

Start simple in the entryway to kick start your organization and reclaim your space!  Remember, even the smallest changes can make a big impact.

Your favorite color is pink and you own more plants than furniture. Does this sound familiar?  If so, you are a lover of all things unique and vintage. 

You think no room is complete without a colorful rug, and every decorative accent tells a story. To you, style is all about expressing yourself and you refuse to be put in a box.

As for the place you call home? It’s flirty and feminine and never without a touch of color. Elevate your home’s charm by incorporating fun and whimsical pieces from our Vintage Style Statement Collection.


Home décor doesn’t have to be boring.  In fact, there is no better place than your personal haven to showcase your personality and love of all things nature. This is exactly why our Vintage Style Statement Collection will speak to you. 

Our linen hook rail is the perfect home for your stockpile of vintage scarves and the luxurious texture of the rail will blend beautifully with other natural elements of your room.

Have you always yearned for a place to display your artful collection of jewelry? By mounting our romantic scroll rail in either your powder room or bedroom, you have a storage solution that is as pretty as the arrangement adorning it. Its scrolled hooks are perfect for lighter items such as necklaces, hair accessories, or purses.




Add a romantic accent to your bedroom with our French romantic bail pulls. These pieces add a unique finishing touch and the patina finishes add an artistic element. Your thrift store dresser will transform to a family heirloom in an instant.

You’ll feel like you’ve brought your garden inside with our flower hook. Available in both creamy ivory and fresh pink, the handmade details feel like a piece you’d buy in an art gallery. Hang several together to blend function and art in your home.

Our Vintage Style Statement Collection helps tell the story you want your home to convey. To you, vintage isn’t “old” — it’s fantastically and agelessly charming.

Handsome, worn and authentic are the words you’d use to describe your home. You’re someone who loves modern amenities but appreciates aged decorative elements that are rough around the edges and showcase the artisanship that goes into their design.

You appreciate the beauty of aged brick and prefer to own a few high-quality originals versus over stuffing your home with cookie cutter reproductions.  Whether you live in a small town or big city, your home reflects your love of all things industrial and modern. 

Sound like you? Refresh your modern style with our Industrial Style Statement Collection. Accented by functional design elements and schoolhouse decorative details, it’s a collection that personifies subtle sophistication without being fussy or cliché.



A perfect complement to your butcher-block countertops and subway-tiled kitchen backsplash is our 3” bar pull. While our flat black finish sets the perfect tone for industrial style, we also have a wide variety of additional tones, from bright chrome to rich bronze to complement your look.

Let your entryway serve a purpose by fastening our
industrial basket with hooks next to your front door. Voila: the perfect place to hang family coats and your furry friend’s leash, as well as a spot to store keys and mail. Being organized now no longer means sacrificing style!



You may not live in an urban loft or reclaimed farmhouse but you can certainly create the feeling of one with pieces from our Industrial Style Statement Collection. Functional doesn’t have to be boring and pretty doesn’t have to be pretentious.

What if you could enjoy the allure, richness, and delight of chocolate all year round — without the calories? You can with bronze pieces from our Liberty Hardware Collections. 

Each year on Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and your birthday you look forward to the chocolatey treats you’ll receive — and with good reason. There’s nothing like the joy that a velvety smooth piece of dark chocolate brings. And as the world well knows, chocolate goes with everything. (Fruit, ice cream, and pastries have long been drizzled in it much to widespread delight.)

Liberty Cocoa Bronze Home Hardware - Valentine's

Our bronze pieces don’t just share chocolate’s color and richness, but also its versatility. Choose from venetian bronze (dark chocolate), cocoa bronze (milk chocolate), or bronze with copper highlights (chocolate with caramel, if you will.) 

Liberty Cocoa Bronze Home Hardware - Valentine's Chocolates 

The finishes are as enticing as they are lavish, making any room where a bronze piece is used evoke a sense of romantic charm. You’ll be transported to cobblestone Grecian streets each time you open a cabinet adorned with one of our traditional statutary bronze Capital knobs. Marilyn Monroe would be jealous of your powder room with its sophisticated Addison towel ring, and adding one of our cocoa bronze wall plates will bring instant warmth to any room.

Liberty Cocoa Bronze Home Hardware - Valentine's Gifts

Each time you come across a bronze detail in your home you’ll be filled with the same sense of pleasure you get from a bite of your favorite Hershey’s bar – only this time you’ll be relishing in the chocolately delight of our Liberty hardware collections.
