A Nailhead Trim Dresser

7,696 Views
I recently worked with a client to create a small chest of drawers for her guest bedroom. She sent me an inspiration picture of a dresser adorned with nail head trim. Even though the finished product doesn't reflect my style, it does a great job of reflecting hers. It was a lot of fun to move outside my comfort zone and try something new on a piece of furniture! I tend to always go for the "safe" option and I loved working with someone unafraid to think outside the box. Read the details of how the transformation was completed by clicking the link.

    Holly, this is absolutely stunning!! I think the nailhead trim adds such a unique personality to this otherwise ordinary - nothing special about it chest!! You took it from ho hum to extraordinary. I especially like taking the nailhead design around to the sides of the piece. I've had the priviledge of working in very high-end furniture/design stores where some of THE most beautiful and elegant furniture from all over the world was sold and I have to say this piece is one that could hold its own against anything I've seen!! I hope you decide to do more of this in the future!!

    Thank you so much @Susan S - what a big compliment! Wish I could say I came up with the inspiration, but that was all my client. I'm so glad she pushed me out of my comfort zone to try something new.
