When you’re furniture shopping, is there a look or detail that instantly draws your attention to a piece? Mine, without a doubt, is nailhead trim. Whether it is around a mirror, on a chair, on a sofa, or on a headboard, I am obsessed. It adds just the right amount of interesting detail and texture to a home decor item.
I think of nailhead trim as wearing a leather jacket with a floral dress. The dress (in this case the piece of furniture) is light and airy on its own, but with the addition of the leather jacket (here, the nailhead trim), it’s instantly tougher and more bad ass.
It’s my ultimate goal to make a headboard with nailhead trim. Using upholstery tacks or nails, which can be found at any craft store for about $5.00, you can inexpensively update any piece of furniture you own. There are so many different designs of upholstery tacks that the possibilities are endless!
I’m loving these images. They’re definitely fueling my obsession!
