Pro-Tip Tuesday: Update Your Wall with Nailhead Trim

5 Feb

Many of us are faced with the harsh realities of a big blank wall and nothing to put on it.  Sure, a Picasso would be nice, but what if it has to go on the other wall? To help us with this conundrum we turned to this week’s pro, Noelle Mercado of True Interiors.

Pro Tip

Nailhead trim on wall

This design adds significant punch to the room without a lot of cost.

Use large nailheads (available in Austin at Capital Upholstery Supply among other places) to create texture on a wall.  Nailheads come in multiple sizes and finishes, from shiny nickel to aged bronze.  In the examples to the right, True Interiors defined a large boring wall with a wash of dark green, then created the texture with large bronze nailheads.  Be sure to mark out your pattern first, so that it comes out looking crisp and even.

We’re using some nailhead trim in our Home Office Makeover, so we can share first-hand how easy it is as soon as we prove it to ourselves!
