Glamming Up Your Furniture With Nailheads

While thumbing through an old issue of House Beautiful, I came across the "Everywhere We Look" feature on nailheads. According to House Beautiful, "nailheads are furniture's new jewelry". After looking at these photos I must say, I agree!

Decorated with aged nailheads, this is the Florence Chair by Shine Home, $1,125. Look at the rich color and design on this chair.


This is a side table decorated with shiny "embroidered" belt of metal studs. It's called the Istanbul Side Table also by Shine Home, $910



Next, is the Albemarle Dining Chair by Barry Dixon Collection for Tomlinson/Erwin-Lambeth, $2,725. Take a look at this chair's back. This is an updated version of a popular chair made in the 40's and 50's.



What a beautiful cabinet! Visconti Large Cabinet, $2,250 by Bungalow5


You can even have a stylish wastebasket! Not only are the nailheads decorative but it's also used to protect the edges from wear and tear. Brown "Crocodile" Nailhead Wastebasket, $97 Dransfield & Ross



This Safari Mirror is covered in brown leather with antique brass nail head trim. $2,169. Ralph Lauren Home


As you can see, when decorating with nailheads the possibilities are endless. Best of all, it's easy to do. All you need is a magnetic nylon tip hammer (the nylon tip prevents damage to the decorative nailhead), decorative nailheads of your choice, and a nail spacer (helps to space nailheads neatly and evenly). To save time, consider using nailhead trim strips instead of individual nailheads.
