DIY Nailhead Trim

Dress up a plain piece of upholstered furniture with nailhead trim. Use these tips to help you achieve embellishment success.

Give a boring piece of furniture a little personality by adding a nail head trim. You'll need a piece of furniture, we're using a footstool, ruler, spacer, nail head trim available at fabric stores, rubber mallet, pen or pencil. For best results, work with an upholstered piece that has a solid frame. This will provide good grip for the nail heads. Starting at a corner, tap the first nail head into the fabric and wood. [SOUND] Use a rubber mallet so that you don't scratch the nail heads. From this starting point, measure and mark nail head points, so that they are equally spaced. We used a one-inch spacing. [MUSIC] [SOUND] Make the marks as you go. [MUSIC]. Working down the line, tapping the nail heads gently with the mallet. To make embellishing measurements easier, buy a nail head spacer tool. [MUSIC] And in a short amount of time, you've made a big impact on basic furniture with a nail head trim. [BLANK_AUDIO]
