There are so many fun things you can do with nailheads and furniture!

I decided to try my own simpiler version with an inexpensive Ikea Lack table.
I took a mallet, bronze finished nailheads, some painters tape and
created this in an afternoon, well the baby took 9 months
to create....haha didn't see that one coming did you.
It was a decent first try, easy to do and not too bad looking. I didn't feel like I really could make the Ikea table look any worse, so had no problems if I caused it damage.
I think next time I will get a second hand solid wood table and use a nailhead spacer, as it is driving me crazy that the nailheads are not perfectly spaced.
