U is for Upholstered Bed

headboardcm2
So, I skipped ahead a little bit to share an upholstered bed that I just made last week.  My client wanted a bed like the one in the picture above.  She picked out a beautiful, shimmery fabric, brushed nickel pyramid shaped nail heads and mahogany tapered feet.

The king size bed was made in 4 pieces and assembled on site.  At a height of 62” I said many prayers about it making it up to the third floor !

Here’s a close up of the 400 individual nail heads.  Just a heads up if you are thinking about trying them……. they not only have to be lined up evenly but they have to be “squared” with each other too.

I think I’m ready to do another one…………… Who wants one ?

Great job. That looks great. I'm not sure I would make it through all of those nails.

It turned out beautifully, Tammy! I think all those nail heads would have driven me batty though! Her drapes look pretty nice, too ~ I'd love to see those as well.

Turned out just beautiful. I thought those things came in strips. Didn't realize you had to tap them in individually. It looks amazing.

So pretty!! I love the double nail heads and I'm thinking about doing this in my bedroom, any tips for getting the nailheads so prefect?

Hi Tammy!

What a fantastic job you did with this headboard and bed. I love nailheads and you executed them perfectly!

That headboard is GORGEOUS! How long did those nailheads take though, sheesh!

Kalamaki said...

Brilliant! It looks amazing, you truly are very clever. I would love make something like this. I'd be very grateful if you would be so kind as to provide just a quick lil blurb on how you did this. Is that piping I see around the headboard edges?
