I know, I know. Just call me the queen of unfinished projects.
I posted about planning the headboard. Posted teaser pictures on facebook and instagram. And then I stopped. I’ve reached a sort of impasse. I’m not sure where to go with this, and I’m hoping you can help.
I am loving the look of the headboard, but once I added the nailhead trim, I felt like my heart sank a little. I don’t know if I’m a huge fan or not. I love nailhead trim, I love tufting, but together? In this headboard? I’m not so sure of myself.
I think part of the problem is that I’m trying to use nailhead trim instead of individual nailheads. When nailing them through a few layers of padding, it creates a wavy look. Also, I didn’t measure anything to make sure I was going in a straight line. I know, bad. I got lazy. But as a result, the nailhead trim kinda accentuates the fact that this thing is not perfect. And I can’t stop seeing that when I look at it!
And when I look at this picture, I swoon all over again.
So what do you think I should do?
Rip out the nailhead trim, measure and start again?
Go with a single layer?
Or scrap it all together and continue the tufting out to the edges?
