Nailhead Trim Bulletin Board

Nailhead trim is all the rage lately. And I must say I’ve definitely jumped on board!

I think it adds instant glam to any piece of furniture. Like Centsational Girl’s dreamy headboard, and this gorgeous tufted side chair.


While I save my pennies to buy a headboard and chair, I knew I had to do something quick and on the cheap to satisfy my need for that shiny metal.

That’s where this blah bulletin board came in. It’s a part of the desk in our guest room, and it needed a little love.

Pretty boring right?

I bought some fabric (on sale!) and some silver thumb tacks…and went to town creating my faux nailhead trim.

It didn’t take too long at all. But I did have some sore thumbs by the end of it.

See…so shiny and purty!

I think the colors work perfectly with our gray and yellow guest room.
