DIY Nailhead Trim Headboard
Remember my DIY upholstered headboard tutorial? In true slow poke fashion, John and I finally got around to adding the nailhead trim that took our headboard out of plain Jane vanilla territory into the "ohmygoshwhydidn'twedothisearlier?" arena. I looooove how it turned out.
I bought this easy nailhead trim kit in antique gold since I didn't want to deal with the hassle of evenly spacing and hammering each nail in. It was super easy since the nailheads come coiled up on a long string, and you just hammer a nail cap over the ones with a hole on top to secure it all in. I think it took about 20 minutes total to add the trim. A cheap way to amp up the 'wow' factor, don't you think?
It would be a great idea to tack these on to mass-market chairs, headboards, sofas, and even Ikea 'Lack' tables, to give them a more customized look. John definitely agrees - he was darting around the house trying to figure out what else we could trim with the extra roll I had on hand. Think I might save it for our vintage sofa we just moved into our bedroom- it desperately needs to be recovered, and I'm still drooling over navy blue velvet upholstery. Velvet + nailhead trim = one happy Kirsten.
