After seeing the gorgeous upholstered bed Kelly from View Along the Way made, Carissa of Carissa Miss knew it was just what she wanted for her daughter’s bedroom. Carissa modified Kelly’s dimensions to fit a twin-sized bed and got to work building, upholstering, and adding nailhead trim. I love the shape of the headboard for a little girl’s room – it reminds me of a princess’ throne!

Blue Velvet Upholstered Settee

Ayisha from The Pursuit of Handyness wanted the perfect settee for her new master bedroom. Unfortunately, the “perfect settee” in Ayisha’s book cost almost $2,000, which was certainly not justifiable for an occasional piece of furniture. Since there was a shortage of DIY settee tutorials out there, Ayisha was forced to figure it out herself. She used an old Ikea chair to save money on the construction and splurged on the foam. In the end, Ayisha got exactly what she wanted in the size and color that she wanted for only $140!

Amber and her husband decided instead to build their own headboard with deep tufts and nailhead trim and are sharing their steps right here on KOD! Without further ado, I’ll let Amber take it away with the how-to on how she made this beauty!

This morning I shared how Laura from Finding Home transformed a boring set of wire baskets into a stylish wood and metal organizer for her craft room. While working on that project, Laura also become captivated with an upholstered letter with nailhead trim from Ballard and couldn’t help but tackle another knock-off project! She grabbed a paper mache letter from the store, wrapped it with a suede-like material, and then added nailhead trim to the edge for a sophisticated, upscale look.

I just love this project from Ahna at Easier Than I Thought because it’s a true example of seeing potential and beauty where others see trash. Ahna took an ugly (and I mean UGLY) old rocker and turned it into a thing of beauty. Literally, it looks like it could be sitting right in Restoration Hardware’s catalog with its nailhead trim, gray-washed finish, and textural linen-like fabric. You’ve got to head over to Ahna’s site to appreciate this miraculous chair makeover and learn how you too can achieve that gorgeous look!

Linen Message Board with Nailhead Trim

Nailhead Trim Cork Board Bulletin Board

When Emily from On the V Side decided to turn her office into a usable craft space, she says there was no question the walls needed a little “pick-me-up.” Emily started with the “simplest of organizational tools” and created a corkboard for the wall. The fun part was that Emily challenged herself to make it for absolutely no cost, using only items she had on hand. Sounds like a girl after my own heart!
