When Corrine Courtney opened Nailed It Hardware in Washingtonville, N.Y., in November 2015, she envisioned a store that bridges the gap between hardware and Pinterest.

Nailed it Hardware holds regular workshops on craft, decor, home projects such as bottle etching, window gardens and repurposed old windows painted and divided in half with cage and chalkboard. Workshop fees range from free to $75.

“We use the tools and techniques of good design to create an inviting and informative experience,” says Courtney. “The goal has always been to be a resource. We have many types of clients with all different needs. We support the decisions and bring you the process to achieve it.”

She adds, “Hardware store means so much more here. I like to say hardware to house’wear.’ We have an entire section of the store dedicated to workshops. This is where we do the project with you. It generally produces a craft to be used or shared in your home.”

Courtney says some of their most popular workshops are pallet signs, copper candelabras, farm table trays, wine racks and screwy pumpkins. “Paint is transformative. We help you personalize your space personally, and our team dedicates itself to helping you figure that out.”
