Upholstered Nailhead Headboard

After sleeping without a headboard for a looong time, Crafty Sister Candace knocked off an upholstered headboard with nailhead trim from Ballard. Seriously, I do not lie when I say Candace’s headboard is even more gorgeous than her inspiration. The crisp, clean edges are absolute perfection!upholstered nailhead trim headboard

Candace was inspired by the Stevenson Nailhead Headboard from Ballard Designs.
