Luxe up a dresser, headboard or any wood furnishing that needs a touch of flash by adding jewellike nailheads. Our focal-point buffet started as a bargain chinoiserie with flat door fronts -- perfect for applying ornamentation.
Pick a base color that shows off the design, like a semigloss white. Instead of drilling and hammering nailheads, which can be a pain, find a faux alternative. Glue on silver-spray-painted round wood plugs or three-dimensional silver nailhead stickers available at some scrapbooking stores.
"You can be very tame with the design and just outline the edges, or have fun and create a diamond pattern or stripes, or do one big monogram," suggests Chicago interior designer Michelle Williams. Click below for the pattern we used.
