Furniture Frosting

I have a thing for nailheads. Maybe because they make recovering a chair super easy and pretty looking, or maybe its because I love a little bling bling on things. Either way here is a collection from my inspiration folder of lots of furniture and accessories with some nailhead detail.

Ditto that!

my favorite and my best said...

when you say "easy" do you mean so easy a caveman coud do it, or easy for someone who sews and/or upholsters furniture? cuz i would fall into the caveman category! (big shout out to all my caveman peeps)

Great collection of inspirational pics!! I'm pondering wether to get a nailhead trim or fabric for the dining room chairs. What do you think? It'll only be visible from the side/back...

LOVE this post, Lindsay! I still have to get around to working on that chair of mine! I swear I'll do it, though :-)

MissBliss said...

wow! i love these, too. I love the linen chair with footrest, and the green piece is so cute.

love them with the chairs at the table in the first picture!

great post!

So many of those images just became quick favorites! I recently saw the idea of useing nailheads to decorate pumpkins (instead of carving) and they look so cute. I'm thinking that would be easy autumn decor!

Jenny- you could totally do it, it is so easy a caveman could do it, that made me laugh just writing it :)

Caitlin said...

Y0u and me both honey!

Thanks for this post.

I pretty much have never met a piece of furniture with nailheads that I didn't like.

Sorry your weekend with Eddie and Jaithan got canceled.

What a fun post idea.

I love that you called it frosting. Reminds me of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days:)

LindsB said...

Stephanie thats where I got it from! I love that movie and I say "frost me" all the time, so it just needed to be used for the title of this post :)

Jennifer said...

LindsB said...

LINDA! OMG, how have I not seen this before?? this really is frosting for furniture, I am in love! Thank you so much!!

Laura@JourneyChic said...

Great photos! There are so many I like, I can't pick just one. I had no idea that nailheads came in different shapes and colors. I love the cool blue ones.

Chic Coles (Cole Design) said...

Thank you for this post! There is nothing that I like more than nail heads, they are my favorite design element! You have such a fabulous collection of images!!!

paula said...

oh boy, I think I want to add them everywhere now.

Deliciously Organized said...

I can't get enough of nailhead. It literally is what you said-furniture frosting.

maison21 said...

that first picture is one of my nightmares- my upholsterer has the same thing (but real) on a big board (plus 10 million finish choices), and picking the nailheads to be used on a piece of furniture is almost always too overwhelming! i want him to do like i do with clients: "ok, here are your 3 choices. which one do you like best?"

nice post, and collection of images. ;-)

Living It At Home said...

I am crazy about nail heads also. Thank you for providing all of those great images.

I want to put the Hanna Chair from Oly next to my sofa in living room. Check out my living room on my blog and let me know what you think. I am having a tough time making a decision.

Your blog is fantastic! Will be back for sure.

Thanks, Jamilyn
