I love nail head trim on furniture. Are you familiar with the above product that makes it so easy to add nail heads to a project?

It comes in a strip like this with a hole every 5 nail heads. You just take a tack and nail it in the hole through to your piece of furniture. You get a nice, straight even line of nail heads!

I recently bought this little twig stool at an auction, but it really needed a new upholstery job. Sorry, I don't have any before pictures. I just wasn't thinking!! Here it is with its new plaid top and nail head trim.

I have a hard time deciding in my home decor if I want sophistication or rustic; so, I just combine the two. Hope the design police don't show up to tell me otherwise!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

That looks cute! It's nice to know about that new product, I'm going to look for that product. I always liked the nail head trim. It really dresses up your stool.

Hi that little stool. I have many pieces of willow furniture in the house. It's great I can put a glass down on the table and not worry about it leaving a ring.

The stool looks great and I am sitting here thinking where could I put some of that trim????
Happy Friday to you!

I love the stool Sally. the nail head trim is just a perfect touch with that fabric.
I think design rules are MAE to be broken...especially if a home is as beautiful and warm as yours is.
Have a sweet weekend!
