We left off with the headboard completely covered in fabric.
Next working on the bottom left side of the headboard, I started to attach the nailhead trim. I bought a nailhead trim kit online. I have heard they are easier to use for a novice like myself, and are easier to keep a nice straight line. I bought my trim here, and you just lay the trim down and add the occasional nail in the "empty" nail spots provided. I used my household hammer and it worked fine.
I decided to do the outer edge first so I used the side of the headboard as a guide and lined it up as I went along.
Around the corners I bent it a little so that it would contour to the corner shape.
This trim kit was so easy to work with, I was so nervous but it really is so simple (and dare I say fun?) After I got the outer edge entirely covered, I needed something to help me evenly space the inner line to the outer line. I decided that my staple gun was the perfect size and guide and it worked marvelously.
I just kept measuring and moving it along. Pretty soon, I had the inner edge done as well.
And that's it, I love how it turned out.
Now just a few more updates and my master bedroom will be all finished.
