hitting the nail on the head

One of my favourite finishes on furniture is nailhead trim. Back in the day, it was used on beaten-up leather chairs to give a feeling of old-school luxury, but nowadays it’s used far more creatively, for example as intricate patterns on headboards, or added to the borders of pin boards. I’m a massive fan of this look, I think it looks so elegant and, well, orderly (which is probably why I like it so much). It’s fairly easy to DIY with the right kit – although possibly best if I steer clear for the time being, otherwise every surface of my flat would get the nailhead treatment…
