Nailhead trim can be yet another way of adding interest and prestige to a plain chest. Habitually Chic featured a picture of a brightly painted chest with brass nailhead tacks decorative tacks which formed a very whimsical pattern. This technique looks terrific on brightly painted chests, and wood chests alike. Consider adding a pattern with nail head tacks to a plain chest which would otherwise be plain and ordinary.

This dresser chest is bold and unique, and could be a focal point in your home. The domed brass-finished tacks are decorative on the walnut finish which creates an overall playful contrast while being functional at the same time.
